Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 25th Market Report

It's Market Wednesday in Uptown Westerville!

This week's weather forecast includes afternoon sunny skies, temperatures in the high 70s, slightly elevated humidity, and a sustained breeze. Sounds like an awesome day to shop until we come upon the guest who never knows when to leave - the forecast for a 51%* chance of a thunderstorm between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. (We are also paying attention to NOAA's rain prediction since it's at 37%!)

Bittersweet news indeed: This will probably be the last week for strawberries. My, what a sweet season it's been! Michele Doran of Doran's Family Farm tells us they'll have strawberries today but not at the same level of the past two weeks.

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

We have a firm hope-so from Dana Lee's and Ohio Farm Direct. (Ohio Farm Direct may not be able to even leave the farm due to high water!)

This week we have two community partners, Westerville Public Library and Westerville Police Division (making up for a schedule conflict earlier this month).

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio!

Have a great Market Wednesday! See you at the market!
