Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 11th Market Report

It's Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville! Home grown. Home made. All Ohio. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home Streets (through October 29th)!

Today's Weather Update: The market "mantra" is Life Happens. Farming Happens. Nature Happens. And, to borrow from baseball's Master of Words & Phrases, Yogi Berra, today's weather is a touch of deja vu all over again. Temperatures in the 70s (remember these days in August!), a breeze, clouds, and... D'oh... a 52% chance of a thunderstorm between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. (so over that!!).

Long-term forecasts do indicate a positive change in the weather pattern for Wednesday afternoons – yes, please!!!! We very much appreciate your sense of humor, patience, and continued weekly visits to Market Wednesday in spite of the weather!!

This week's confirmed Vendor line-up:

Sweet Thing Gourmet, Dan the Baker, Pleiades Maple Products, Swainway Urban Farm, Bildsten Landscape, Fox Hollow Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Flying J Farm, Doran's Family Farm, Hartzler Family Dairy, Bridgman Farm, Ohio Farm Direct, Dana Lee's, Sugar B Bakery, Chuck Evans' Montezuma Brand Sauces and Salsas.

We expect to see, but don't
have a confirmation yet from Blue Jacket Dairy.

This week's community partner is Westerville Police Division. (We will see WPD Crime Prevention Specalists Pierre La Rose and Preston Tarte around 3:30 or so this afternoon.)

Each Wednesday, Meza @ 48 N. State (just steps south from the market space), features a specially-priced Market Wednesday cocktail. Today's feature is:
a Blackberry, Mint and Moscato Refresher! $5. served during the market hours. We appreciate Meza's continued support each week and encourage you to visit Meza, a great resource for wine pairing ideas that complement your market fare choices!

See you at the market!!
