On the edge of unprecedented weather, the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market celebrates Halloween and our last Market Wednesday of the season.

Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at N. State & E. Home Streets in Uptown Westerville.

While, it'll be cloudy, forecasts for this afternoon include a breeze, temperatures in the mid-40s and, with the exception of a chance for trace precipitation between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., no rain... or snow! So, a typical fall day, perfect for a trip to the market.

Kids can warm-up for Westerville's Beggar's Night (6 p.m to 8 p.m.) and trick or treat at the market! Trick or treat has become a favorite season-ending tradition - vendors will have candy to share (while supplies last of course!) and it's the only time of year that fairy princesses, super heroes, cowboys, lions, dinosaurs, and stormtroopers visit the market.

Northridge Organic Farm has now completed its Market Wednesday season. Much thanks to Mike and Laura Laughlin.
