Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: September 22nd Market Report

Well, our "slow cooker summer" can't quite let go, so we have a beautiful day that's a touch humid, but still a great day for a touch of farm fresh!

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio.  The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is open for business from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at N. State and E. Home Streets in Uptown Westerville.  The market runs from May through October.

Cowtown Candies will again be attending market today.  We welcome Bee Katz to our market.

Sugar B Bakery, featuring home-made loaf breads, scones, and bagels is scheduled to debut next week (September 29th).

We've had so many requests for Amherst Greenhouse's beautiful potted mums. We heard from Adin and Mary Horst and Amherst Greenhouse will not be attending this season at all.  So, we are sorry to report no mums.  Mary tells us the summer's heat discouraged blossoms. 

We will not see Arjay Gourmet, Bridgman Farm, Eyestone Flower Farm, and Pleiades Maple today and Triple J Farms has completed their market season.

As we bid farewell to one of the best peach seasons ever, we welcome Apples to the market.  Each week we see more and more apples in more and more varieties from Gala to Fujis.  Malabar Peach Orchard sells single apples, and it's great fun for kids to pick out their own apple fresh out of the orchard.

Produce is still plentiful and gorgeous and look for potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic and there are still plenty of peppers, tomatoes, and more.

Chef John of Two Caterers is featuring Butternut Squash at this week's market.

See you at the market!
