Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: September 16th Market Report

Oh, it's a beautiful day to pick up a little farm fresh in Uptown Westerville! Sunshine, blue skies, temperatures in the high 70s/low 80s, low humidity, and a light breeze from the southwest.

This week's vendor line-up: Sweet Thing Gourmet, Montezuma Sauces and Salsas, Sugar B Bakery, Kokoborrego Cheese Co./Sippel Family Farm, Annabelle's Blooms*, Malabar Peach and Apple Orchard*, J-Pops, Lona Belle's Home Baked Goods, Doran's Family Farm*, Ohio Farm Direct, Flying J Farm*, Bird's Haven Farms, Fox Hollow Farm, Branstool Orchards, Miss Cristy's Bakery.

The starred vendors (Doran's Family Farm, Malabar Peach and Apple, Flying J Farm, and Annabelle's Blooms) are expected, but depending on what they are able to fresh pick, may not attend market today. As soon as we know, we'll post here on facebook.

Pleiades Maple is out this week. Eddie Lou Meimer will return to market next week.

Branstool Orchards is bringing apples to market today - this year's peach season lite has now come to an end.

This week's community partner is the always energized Westerville Electric Division.

As we stand at the gateway to fall in Central Ohio, we will start to see our produce vendors wind down their seasons.

Last night, we heard from Mary Bridgman with Bridgman Farm, and Mary believes she's done for the season. She has a late tomato planting (late due to the monsoon conditions in Fayette County earlier this summer) that probably won't ripen, and if she has tomatoes for market we will see Bridgman Farm at the market yet this season. (We'll keep you posted.) Huge thanks to Mary, and Shannon Fisher, for bringing such beautiful, delicious produce (ah, those Sungolds!) to market each week.

We are currently waiting to hear from Michele Doran with Doran's Family Farm as to whether or not they will have enough to bring to market today. We'll keep you posted!

We are also waiting to hear from Flying J Farm and Malabar Peach and Apple Orchard.

We will see Bird's Haven Farms, Branstool Orchards, and Kokoborrego Cheese Co./Sippel Family Farm today.

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio. Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. @ N. State and E. Home through October 28th!

Browse. Visit. Taste. Shop. Enjoy.

See you at the market!
