Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 19th Market Report

Oh, what a beautiful day in Uptown Westerville!

Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home.

It is a perfect day for a fresh-air visit to the market.  Market Wednesday is a place where you can efficiently get down to business - park and pick up what you want and head out - or a place to linger and enjoy - visit, browse, taste, and shop.

Of note this week - this is Bildsten Landscape's last week of the 2013 season. We appreciate the beauty (awesome flowers) and taste (the herbs and the lettuce pots!) that Mark and Karin bring to market each week. Karin said they'd have prices marked down today, so stop by to say Hi or to buy!

Doran's Family Farm has been out a couple of weeks and returns to market with sugar snap peas.

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

Energize! The Westerville Electric Division is our community partner at this week's market. Stop by and visit with Zoe and Rick.

We really appreciate the support of Meza, 48 N. State, steps just south of the market. Meza features a selection of affordable, distinctive wines, including Ohio wines.  Much like our vendors, Tatjana and Jason Brown have a passion for what they sell and they celebrate the connection we all make over simple and good food and drink. Each Wednesday, during market hours, stop by Meza for Tatjana's specially-priced Market Wednesday tasting. Did you buy something special at today's market? Ask the folks at Meza about wine pairings for your market selections.

As always, a shout out to Church of the Messiah, United Methodist for providing space for the market - we appreciate it! Special thanks to Amy and Brenda at Messiah.  We also owe a huge thank you to Messiah volunteers Gene Hulbert and Rose Morgan, Gene and Rose serve up free ice water and lemonade to market customers and vendors.

On this beautiful Market Wednesday, we'll... see you at the market!
