Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 10th Market Report

There's no denying it - the air will be humid, hot, and a bit clingy today, but we may see a touch of a breeze, and while there is precipitation in the forecast, it is currently between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. at a 50% chance, estimated amount is just over 1/10th of an inch. Sounds a lot like a summer's day in Central Ohio.

And, it is a great day for some farm fresh shopping.

This week's vendor line-up: Branstool Orchards, Northridge Organic Farm, Dana Lee's, Blue Jacket Dairy, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Chuck Evans' Montezuma Brand Sauces and Salsas, Sugar B Bakery, Annabelle's Blooms, Z Blueberry, Doran's Family Farm, Honey Health Farms, Flying J Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, and Fox Hollow Farm.

Just this week, we will not see Pleiades Maple Products (temperatures are too warm for maple products and there are some roads blocked by rising waters in Morrow County), Hartzler Family Dairy, and Ohio Farm Direct.

What's new this week? More fresh produce, including sweet corn from Doran's Family Farm and fresh-picked peaches from Branstool Orchards! Annabelle's Blooms opens for the season with beautiful fresh cut sunflowers.

Market hours are 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home in Uptown Westerville.

Couple reminders as we are now entering sweet corn and peach season: There's plenty of parking east of the market space - just a reminder to park nice and make sure there's room for folks to open and close their vehicle doors (like you're parking at the grocery or for church!) There is an alleyway (a continuation of Heywood/Dill) that runs through the back parking lots - please do your best not to park in the alley.

And, there are no early sales on Market Wednesdays. The market opens at 3 p.m. (Asking will not get you a different answer.)  We want you to enjoy your trip to the market and not bump up against frustrated expectations.

Stay cool! Have a great day!
