Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 14th Market Report

Well, it's Week 11 of the 2010 Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market, each Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. thru October at N. State and E. Home Streets.

It looks like a great day today to shop for some Farm Fresh - we'll see all active market vendors but one today!

About the weather... dress market cool and hydrate, we are looking at high 80s and partly cloudy skies with a light breeze in the afternoon.  While you're at the market, stop by Church of the Messiah's Front Porch to take a few minutes in the shade to visit and enjoy a little chilled H2O or lemonade!

Up until 1:44, we thought we'd see Malabar Peach Orchard this week, but Mike emailed us from his orchards and he wants the peaches to tree-ripen one more week, so they are ready to eat.  So, we'll see the season premiere of Malabar Peach Orchard with fresh-picked, chemical free peaches, next week. 

Farmhouse Herbs and Flowers will feature day-brightening fresh-cut sunflowers.

We will not see Chris and Andrea Schimpf of Eyestone Flower Farm this week.

The W. Main Street bridge over Alum Creek is now closed, so we suggest if you are coming from west to east into Uptown Westerville, take Cleveland Avenue north to County Line Road and then east on County Line and south on N. State into Uptown Westerville or take Schrock Road east to S. State and head north on State into Uptown Westerville.

Farm Fresh: The produce variety is becoming more and more plentiful and colorful each week.  Visit our produce vendors: Bird's Haven Farms, Bridgman Farm, Carousel Watergarden Farm, Doran's Family Farm, Flying J Farm, and Northridge Organic Farm and our orchard vendors: Branstool Orchards and Malabar Peach Orchard.

We saw 25 dozen ears of sweet corn from Doran's last week, don't know yet what we'll see this week.

We highly recommend stopping by Meza at 48 N. State - Meza is a friendly and welcoming wine and pantry shop  (lots of made in Ohio) just a few steps south of the Market. Each Wednesday, Tatjana and Jason Brown feature a Market Wednesday $1 Wine Tasting. 

Uptown Westerville features shops and restaurants that are both interesting and air conditioned!  So, cool off and shop, browse, visit, drink, or dine.  Shop Uptown Westerville.

See you at the market!
