Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: May 29th Market Report

We are looking at a fabulous weather forecast for this week's Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market! Sunny skies, a light breeze, low humidity, temperatures in the 80s, and zero percent chance of precipitation. A perfect day for fresh air shopping for Market Wednesday's home-grown, home-made, and all Ohio fare.

This week's vendors: Sugar B Bakery, Montezuma Brand Sauces and Salsas, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Blue Jacket Dairy, Dana Lee's, Pleiades Maple Products, Northridge Organic Farm, Bildsten Landscape, Fox Hollow Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Flying J Farm, Ohio Farm Direct, Bridgman Farm, Honey Health Farms, Doran's Family Farm, Hartzler Family Dairy.

Our farm vendors don't know what's coming to market until they pick, so no guarantees - last week, we did see a few strawberries at Bird's Haven Farms, and we know Bird's Haven Farms and Doran's Family Farm are waiting for strawberries to come on - so we'll let you know on twitter and facebook as soon as we can.

Update: Doran's Family Farm will have a small quantity of strawberries at today's market.

This is summer wedding season and an artisan food gift basket makes a great wedding gift!  We've also had brides and grooms order thank you gifts from Pleiades Maple Products, Honey Health Farms, and Sweet Thing Gourmet. So, keep a little farm fresh in mind when you are looking for new gift ideas!

Stop by Meza, 48 N. State, during market hours for the Meza Market Wednesday specially-priced tasting.  Meza features wines from the world-over, including a really nice selection of Ohio wines and Meza's Tatjana Brown can offer some great suggestions for market fare wine pairings. For more information, visit Meza online (and check out the blog).

School's out! So, you'll see more kids in more places all hours of the day in crosswalks, on bikes, on scooters, on skateboards, on the sidewalk, along the side of the road, in parking lots.... We're just sayin' - be safe.
