Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Let Freedom Ring

Each year, we proudly display our favorite description of the Independence Day holiday from Erma Bombeck:

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. 

Westerville knows how to celebrate Independence Day! Here's the basic 411 on the 07.04 courtesy of the City of Westerville:
