Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: May 21st Market Report

As amazing as it seems, and there may have been times this winter we never thought we'd see it, this weekend is Memorial Day Weekend.

Like last week, the biggest question mark of the day is what's up with the weather during market hours. The forecast continues to improve - and we are now looking at a 51% chance of a thunder storm between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. and then cloudy skies to partly cloudy skies and no precipitation from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. market close. We should see a 9 to 10 mph breeze this afternoon and temperatures in the high 70s.

So, we'll keep everyone posted via social media as the weather adjusts.

This week's confirmed line-up: Hartzler Family Dairy, Doran's Family Farm, Ohio Farm Direct, Sugar B Bakery, Chuck Evans' Montezuma Brand Sauces and Salsas, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Blue Jacket Dairy, Dan the Baker, Pleiades Maple Products, Swainway Urban Farm, Bildsten Landscape, Fox Hollow Farm, and Flying J Farm.

We expect, and are awaiting confirmation from Dana Lee's.

Vendor Line-up Update: 5.21.14 9:40 a.m. We will not see Bird's Haven Farms today - the Bird family is attending an important school event for daughter Ella and Bridgman Farm is not coming to market today.

This week, we welcome Westerville Community Partners Westerville Police Division and Westerville Electric Division.

And, Meza, just south of the market at 48 N. State, features a specially-priced Market Wednesday sangria. Tatjana and Jason Brown carry a unique collection of affordable wines from far away places and our own backyard. If you are looking for some wine pairing ideas for your market fare, stop by Meza and talk to Tatjana.
