It's a beautiful Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville. A perfect day to shop farm fresh!

Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio. Each Wednesday 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home through October 30th.

Market vegetables include winter squash varieties - from butternut to spaghetti to pumpkins - eggplant, tomatoes, sweet corn, chestnuts, sweet potatoes, potatoes, sweet and hot peppers, onions, garlic, okra, fresh cut basil, and kale.

You'll also find some gnarly, colorful decorative squash and mini pumpkins as well as cut flowers from Annabelle's Blooms for your fall arrangements.
