Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: August 19th Market Report

It's Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville! The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is ready for a warm, humid afternoon.

Krista Wagner of Nature's Honey tell us:

I will be offering a new product this week, called Chamomile Facial Scrub. My 8 oz jars of Chamomile Facial Scrub contain a mixture of chamomile flowers, organic ground oatmeal, and grated handmade soap. You also recieve a piece of muslin and ribbon to tie it all together, moisten, and scrub away! I only have a limited number of jars, so come pick up a Chamomile Facial Scrub before they are gone!

Be ready for pie withdrawal -- Sue Renner of Sue's Kitchen will not be attending this week's market -- but she'll be back next week!

Jane Varley of Varley Valley shares:

We have several new jams this week: elderberry, low sugar wild elderberry, Mango Chutney (similar to Major Grey’s chutney), Hot Mango Chutney, and Spiced Tomato Jam. If you have never tried tomato jam before, please stop by and try it. It tastes like lemon and spices with a very mild tomato flavor.
