Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: September 15th Market Report

Oh, what a beautiful Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville today!

The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market opens for business today at 3 p.m. (through 6 p.m.) at N. State and E. Home in the Church of the Messiah parking lot.  The market season runs through October.

The produce selection is still full of flavor and variety.  We are still seeing some peaches and each week apples are becoming more and more plentiful.  Doran's and Bird's Haven still have sweet corn and we have an abundant supply of tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic, peppers, and squash varieties.

Chef John Skaggs of Two Caterers will be creating some delicious dishes from today's market fare (literally Chef's surprise, we don't know yet what John will be cooking up).  See something at the market you're not sure how to prepare - check with Chef John.

Our market vendors love to talk, so don't hesitate to ask questions!

We will not see Arjay Gourmet, Bridgman Farm, Eyestone Flower Farm, and Pleiades Maple at today's market.  And, actually, all four vendors will not be attending next week's market as well.

Today we welcome Bee Katz's Cowtown Candies of Pataskala.  Bee is bringing home-made fudge, buckeyes, caramel apples and other confections with her to market today.

Sweet Thing Gourmet is currently featuring Vanilla Pear Jam.  This popular seasonal favorite is made in a small batch, so it is a limited edition presence.

Pick up your daily bread on Market Wednesday.  Next week, the UWFM welcomes Angela Bowman and Sugar B Bakery.  Angela features hand-made loaf bread and bagels.

We are awaiting Amherst Greenhouse and their beautiful mums, so as soon as we know, you'll know!

We encourage you to Shop Uptown Westerville while you're here for the market, including Meza, 48 N. State.  Meza features a Market Wednesday $1 wine tasting and a selection of good pantry ingredients (along with their wonderful wines), including a lot of Ohio Proud.

Big thanks to Sonny and Rose D'Andrea at the Dairy Queen (84 N. State) for including the UWFM on their sign each week. 

Enjoy this beautiful day and we'll see you at the market!
