Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 15th Market Report

This week at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market,

We thought we'd have sweet corn but we just heard from Doran's and as of this a.m., no sweet corn today. And, while Doran's thought this week was it, it's not corn yet! So corn next week! Sorry. It'll be worth the wait.

As the sunny days continue (partly cloudy and low 80s for the market today), the fresh market produce selection continues to grow -- we are starting to see summer squash, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant.

Last week, market patrons made new vendor, Speckled Hen Farm, featuring fresh eggs, chicken, and chicken sausage feel very welcome, and this week we welcome new market vendor Luna Burger! Luna Burger features a selection of delicious, great-for-the-grill veggie burgers!

Market fav, Carousel Watergarden Farm is featuring more and more produce each week and they've added fresh eggs to their selection.

We will not see Z Blueberry and Bridgman Farm.

Sue's Kitchen will have 30 small pies today (no blackberries yet) along with cookie stacks and coffee bread of the week. Check out this week's installment of From Sue's Kitchen on Sue's blog, click here.

Batter and Bowl's weekly cut-out cookie last week was... a palm tree! Tropical! What will Sara Yates bring this week?! Sara's weekly cut-out is just $1 and a fun purchase for kids and grown-ups! Sara features delicious confections each week - take a notalgic trip back to those school cafeteria days -- Sara has No Bakes!

Now, WARM Fresh Green vouchers are accepted at ALL food vendors at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' market. To learn more about WARM and WARM Fresh Green, check out the market web page.

Nature's Honey, Varley Valley, Blue Jacket Dairy all have special market report postings on blog.

Church of the Messiah
(they provide the parking lot!) features a hospitality area called The Front Porch -- just a place in the shade to "take a load off," and they offer free water and lemonade.

And, the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market loves dogs! Stop by the NorthStar Pet Services dog watering station near The Front Porch for fresh water and treats for our puppy patrons.

We encourage all market patrons to Shop Uptown Westerville each Wednesday afternoon during their market visit. Meza, 48 N. State, always features a special Market Wednesday $1 wine tasting along with pantry and serving suggestions to compliment your market buys. Meza features a lot of made-in-Ohio foods! Stop by Meza and meet owner, Tatjana Brown on Wednesday afternoons!

As always, a big shout out and thank you to Sonny and Rose D'Andrea of Dairy Queen (84 S. State) - we appreciate the sign each week!!!

3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesdays through October, N. State and E. Home -- the market is a great place to try new flavors and foods, meet friends (sometimes on-purpose, sometimes a pleasant surprise!), and just have a great time. A great place for people!
