Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: August 7th Market Report

Broccoli from Doran's Family Farm.

Wow, it's the first full week of August and the Uptown Westerville Farmers Market is now past the half-season mark!

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

The weather report is the typical August mixed bag featuring mostly sunny skies, with a possibility of rain, a breeze that we hope sustains during market hours, fluctuating humidity and temperatures in the mid-80s.

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

This week's community partner space features the Westerville Senior Center (located between Doran's and Flying J). 

We will not see Honey Health Farms and Ohio Farm Direct this week.

For anyone new to Market Wednesday, first, thank you!, and second, be aware that there will more than likely be a line for peaches. For more information, check out our Change of Pace blog post to give you an idea of what to expect during peak produce season.

Also, we want you to enjoy your market experience - please lock your vehicles and make sure any electronics or valuables are stored out of sight. When you are shopping, don't ever allow yourself to be distracted from your valuables or your purchases. 

While you're Uptown, stop by Meza at 48 N. State, just steps south of the market. Tatjana Brown has a specially-priced Market Wednesday wine tasting (usually it's a cool sangria that comes with a recipe). Meza has a nice selection of Ohio wines and if you ever have pairing questions or are looking for suggestions, just ask!
