Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 29th Market Report

Ahhh, the first of the summer squash just in time for the holiday weekend.

It is a beautiful day to shop, visit, and browse at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market.

Doran's Family Farm will be bringing yellow and zucchini squash along with onions, snap peas (so good!) and onions.  Check out Carousel Watergardens Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Northridge Organic Farm, and Flying J Farm for produce and holiday grill selections of poultry and meats.

Both Blue Jacket Dairy and Ohio Farm Direct feature fabulous Ohio-made cheeses, made with milk from Ohio cows and goats.

And our artisan foods from raw honey to Mexican Brownies are just great for summer get togethers.

The Westerville Public Library will be visiting us at the market today!

And, we have a special appearance from Z Blueberry of Fredericktown.

We will not see Sue's Kitchen, Dana Lee's, and Chef John Skaggs this week.

Bildsten Landscape's 2011 market season has come to a close. Thanks to Mark and Karen for the amazing hanging baskets and beautiful flowers.

Remember to stop by Meza, 48 N. State, for the Market Wednesday $1 wine tasting.  Ask Tatjana Brown for pairing ideas when you stop by.

See you at the market.

Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 1 Market Report

It is a beeee-yew-tiful day in Uptown Westerville  - what a perfect Market Wednesday.

We are starting to see a slightly broader selection of produce - we should see fresh, Licking County strawberries today, along with leaf lettuces, and maybe a touch of asparagus.

Delicious, made-with-care artisan foods abound - pie (Sue will have cherry pie this week!), cookies, confections, breads (including loaf breads), crackers, cupcakes, cheeses, chutneys, summer sausage, jams, biscotti, salsa and sauces, and tea blends.

Look for grass-fed beef from Flying J Farm and poultry and fresh eggs from Carousel Watergardens Farm.

Bildsten Landscape is at the market today with fresh flowers (hanging baskets) and lettuce and herb bowls - like the flowers in Uptown Westerville? They are supplied by Bildsten Landscape.  Talk and chat with Mark and Karen today!

Chuck Evans' Montezume Brand starts its market season today - stop by and visit with Chuck - great salsas, hot sauces, and tortilla chips.

We will not see Pleiades Maple or Northridge Organic today - with the weather improved, work needs to be done on the farm.
