Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 31st Market Report

Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods;

and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts. 
- James Beard

It's the last day of July and we should see a beautiful summer afternoon  in Uptown Westerville. It's Market Wednesday!

Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio. The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market opens for business from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home Streets.

We are keeping an eye on the sky (and weather reports) between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. today for an ever so slight chance of rain.

The fresh produce is plentiful and full-of-flavor: peaches, tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers, potatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, onions, summer squash varieties, garlic, eggplant, and okra.

Artisan foods include salsas, tortilla chips, cheese, daily bread, butter, jams, cookies, milk, specialty breads, sauces, maple syrup, packaged ice cream, scones, maple-coated spelt, rubs, and marinades.

Market protein vendors are Fox Hollow Farm (fresh eggs, beef, lamb, chicken, pork) and Flying J Farm (grass-fed beef).

This week's line-up:  Malabar Peach and Apple Orchard, Annabelle's Blooms, Sugar B Bakery, Chuck Evans' Montezuma Brand Salsas and Sauces, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Blue Jacket Dairy, Pleiades Maple Products, Northridge Organic Farm, Branstool Orchards, Fox Hollow Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Flying J Farm, Ohio Farm Direct, Doran's Family Farm, Hartzler Family Dairy, Bridgman Farm, Dana Lee's Bakery. 

Market Tip: Lots of Market Wednesday merchandise is sold frozen and refrigerated or keeps best when cooled, if you plan on browsing, tasting, and shopping - pack a cooler.
