Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Market Wednesday, May 8th

This week, we welcome Doran's Family Farm (they have asparagus!) and Ohio Farm Direct (awesome cheeses) to their first Market Wednesday of the 2013 season.

Sunday, May 12th is Mother's Day. There is something extra special about a thoughtful gift that comes with a story and a farmers' market is a cool place to find small tokens of great appreciation for our Moms...

▪ A beautiful hanging flower basket.
▪ A gift that keeps on giving - a lettuce pot garden.  
▪ A special artisan food treat or a gift basket with market fresh artisan foods: maple syrup, maple-based sauces, spreads, and dressings, maple sugar candy, jams, biscotti, fruit-based and tomato-based salsas, hot sauces, crackers, cheeses, raw honey, or a loaf of bread and a butter roll.
▪ Plant a vegetable or herb garden (in-ground or container) with plants from the farmers' market.

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

While, we are keeping an eye on the weather forecasts, the good news is that with each passing minute, the forecast improves.  There is currently a 27% chance of a thunderstorm between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., and we like those odds, so it should be a really nice afternoon for some farm fresh shopping.
