While it's a bit cloudy and occasionally misty, it's a great day to pick up some farm fresh at the corner of N. State and E. Home in Uptown Westerville.

Our market is rain or shine and you can shop and dash or linger - all our vendors are under cover and so we suggest you find a favorite (or a vendor you've never stopped to see) and visit with old friends or make new.

Produce is plentiful (what a variety) and our artisan food selection includes cheeses, chutneys, and brownies.

We will not see Sugar B Bakery (look for Angela and her delicious breads next week) or Bridgman Farm (we'll see Mary next week).

Marshall Branstool tells us they have about 2 more weeks of peaches ripening, Mike Dippold of Malabar Peach & Apple Orchard is bringing fresh apples to market (great for kids - you can buy just one apple!) and our produce vendors have a variety of fresh melon.

Sweet peppers are making the scene along with a lot of hot pepper sizzle (the colors are something).

Our artisan foods include baked goods, chutney, salsa, jam, honey, maple syrup, and cheeses.

Stop at Northridge Organic Farm for lamb, Flying J Farm for beef (grass fed), and Carousel Watergardens Farm for poultry and fresh eggs. (Eggs are refrigerated and meats and poultry frozen, so having a cooler or frozen food bag handy helps.)

Truly a feast for the senses.

If you have a chance, take a few steps past the market and Rotary Park and visit Meza, 48 N. State. Tatjana Brown has a Market Wednesday tasting and will be happy to answer any wine pairing questions.

Enjoy this cool weather!  See you at the market.
