Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 26th Market Report

It's gonna be a warm one this week!  Put on your coolest outfit and some sunscreen, grab a bottle of ice cold water, and join us at N. State and E. Home from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Uptown Westerville for some farm fresh shopping!

Weather Update: There is a 50% chance of rain between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., and other than that, the forecast reflects temps in the low 80s, and no precip.

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

This week's guest is community partner Westerville Public Library.

Eddie Lou Meimer of Pleiades Maple will be out this week - she's in Sacramento and NoCal touring farms.  And, Michele Doran tells us that they are in-between crops so Doran's Family Farm will be out this week, too. Michele told us the sweet corn looks good and Doran's should have corn to bring to market mid-July.

Vendor Line-up Update: Bridgman Farm may not be coming to market today. Mary Bridgman is in Washington CH and weather may keep Mary from harvesting for today's market.

We also heard from Anna Brown of Anabelle's Blooms, and Anna should be bringing her beautiful fresh cut flowers to market in mid-July. And, the peaches are coming along, and we should see Branstool Orchards mid-July as well.

By the way, next week's market is July 3rd - so keep Market Wednesday in mind as you make out your shopping list for your Independence Day festivities.

Have a great day. Stay cool. And, we'll see you at the market!
