Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: August 4th Market Report

Okay, no way around it, we know it's a sauna-like summer's day here in Central Ohio and we might see some rain! If you can be in where it's cooler, you should be. We understand that you may not want to browse, linger, and taste, but we encourage you to come to the market and quick shop the market: turn the A/C on full blast in the car, park, and stay-on-point: pick up your market favorites, and head right back to that cool car! 

The produce is right out of the fields, off the vine, and fresh-picked ripe from the trees - rich, fresh, and flavorful and not to be missed.  And, your favorite artisan foods and farm fresh proteins are available.

Church of the Messiah hosts The Front Porch a cool place to sit and relax in the shade and the market have a free water or lemonade and just sit a spell. 

This week, we will not see Landrum Cottage (Dana is opening her new bistro in Granville today), Pleiades Maple Products, Sue's Kitchen, and Chuck Evans' Montezuma Brand Salsas and Chips.

A chance to win two Amish-crafted Ardirondak Chairs: Josh Winbigler and Nick McClary, two students from St. Paul School will be selling raffle tickets at our market for the chance to win two Amish-crafted, treated-pine adirondack chairs (retail value $115. each) from Amish Originals Furniture Co. as part of their Summer Service Project. All proceeds will be donated to WARM Fresh Green Program.  The guys will be selling raffle tickets through August 25th. Tickets cost $1 each or 6 tickets for $5.  Thanks for helping Josh and Nick experience community service first hand and for doing a nice thing!

Ask Honey Health Farms for a taste of their exclusive Cinnamon Honey! This honey is great in tea, hot or cold cereals,to marinate pork or poultry, to drizzle over fresh fruit or ice cream and as well is great to use in all the traditional ways honey is used.

Mike Laughlin of Northridge Organic Farm tells us he's bringing sun-ripened, fresh heirloom tomatoes to market today.

Each Market Wednesday, Meza, 48 N. State, features a Market Wednesday $1 wine tasting.  Tatjana is always happy to answer any food or pairing questions you may have.  This charming shop, with its winery shop atmosphere, is filled with enthusiasm and celebration for cuisine, fine, affordable wines, and good, simple meals.

And, of course, we encourage you any day of the week to Shop and Dine Uptown Westerville.

Stay cool!  See you at the market!
