It's a cloudy, pleasant fall Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville and the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market opens for business today at 3 p.m.

Produce is plentiful including sweet potatoes, squash, tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins, melons, cauliflower, sweet corn, cabbage and more.

Mike Dippold of Malabar Peach and Apple Orchard is bringing fresh-picked Crispin, Cortland, Granny Smith, Red Delicious, and Jonagold apple varieties to market today. 

Our artisan food vendors feature baked goods, cheeses, drinkable yogurt, milk, jams, chutneys, flour, maple syrup, and raw honey.

Market meats and poultry are available at Northridge Organic Farm (lamb), Flying J Farm (grass-fed organic beef), Carousel Watergardens Farm (poultry and fresh eggs).

Amherst Greenhouse will be present this week with their beautiful mums ($5 pot, $18 large pot, $20 large pot with fountain grass) and Farmhouse Herbs and Flowers features beautiful cut flowers.

Today, Chef John Skaggs of the Heirloom Cafe at the Wexner Center will be serving up samples and a recipe for his Butternut Squash Guacamole

We will not see Sugar B Bakery and Bridgman Farm today (both Angela and Mary will be back next week).

While you're in Uptown Westerville, we encourage you to shop Uptown Westerville and visit Meza, 48 N. State, just a few steps south of the market, for Tatjana Brown's Market Wednesday wine tasting.

Have a great Market Wednesday and... see you at the market!
