Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: September 4th Market Report

Peppers at Bird's Haven Farms.

Oh, what a beautiful day in Uptown Westerville today! Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio. The first September market of the 2013 Market Wednesday season opens for business today from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home Streets.

This week vendor line-up: Hartzler Family Dairy, Doran's Family Farm, Flying J Farm, Bird's Haven Farm, Fox Hollow Farm, Branstool Orchards, Northridge Organic Farms, 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.

As of this post, we are waiting to hear from Bridgman Farm. So, we'll update as we know.

Update: We thought we were going to see Dana Lee's today, but she has a family-related scheduling conflict. Family first, always. 

Update: Annabelle's Blooms will be at market today! 

Update: Bridgman Farm will be at market today!

Honey Health Farms is still side-lined. (You can place a honey order online with Honey Health.)

This week we welcome community partner Westerville Senior Center. (You just have to be 55 to join the Senior Center!)

Where can you get fresh fruits and vegetables? Doran's Farmily Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Branstool Orchard, Northridge Organic Farm, Malabar Peach and Apple Orchard, and Flying J Farm.

Produce looks (and tastes!) great - this is what you should see today: Peaches, apples, cauliflower, potatoes, pumpkins, winter squash, summer squash, peppers, sweet corn, okra, garlic, tomatillos, onions, shallots, tomatoes, eggplant, cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, and broccoli.

Pick up proteins and dairy at Fox Hollow Farm (beef, chicken, lamb, pork, fresh eggs), Flying J Farm (grass-fed beef), Hartzler Family Dairy (milk, roll butter, packaged ice cream), and Blue Jacket Dairy (awesome cheeses including cheddar curds and the legendary Gretna Grillin').

Artisan foods include Sugar B Bakery (bread, bagels, and scones), Pleiades Maple Products (Ohio maple syrup, maple sugar, maple-coated nuts, sauces and spreads, maple-coated spelt, maple chocolate chip cookies (yum), and maple sugar candies, including kid-fave maple suckers), Chuck Evans Montezuma Brand Salsas and Sauces (salsas (all heat levels), hot sauces, marinades, barbecue sauce, rubs, and tortilla chips), and Sweet Thing Gourmet (biscotti, jam).

We say with great sincerity and gratitude that we truly appreciate seeing you all each week. Thank you!
