Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Special Market Hours

Yes, this is a rain or shine market, but when we say rain, we mean rainfall, drizzle, or showers  - the kind you read about in poetry and see in romantic movies - and not torrential downpours, thunder, lightning, microbursts, and high winds. We really do have sense enough to come in out of that kind of rain! 

So, after monitoring May 14th's weather for days, we are seeing no change in the forecast and, thunderstorms are expected to enter this area around 5 p.m… and they’re not leaving for a while.
So, May 14th only we are going to open at 3 p.m., as usual, this Market Wednesday (5.14) and close at 5 p.m. (we’ll probably start getting ready to close around 4:30 – and it all depends on the weather – we hope the weather changes for the better as we move closer to market).

We’ll keep you posted via social media.

Update 5.14.14. 8:55 a.m.: The weather forecast is improved, sort of, but there is a still a good chance we will see a storm this afternoon - as of this moment, there is a 51% chance of a storm between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. and then forecast cloudiness from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a 47% chance of rain. (We utilize and WBNS-TV weather for the market.) We are planning on sticking with 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. business hours today and we'll roll along and adjust as we go - as long as we can safely do business, we will do our best. Farmers' markets are indeed an adventure! Thank you for rolling along with us!

(We'll update social media as needed.)

Usually our vendors with orders for pick-up stay until 6 p.m. - even when we’ve had to suspend the market – if you don’t hear from the vendor, we encourage you to double-check.
