Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: October 14th Market Report

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. [Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebook, October 10, 1842]

What a nice afternoon to visit Uptown Westerville and the farmers' market!

Browse. Visit. Taste. Shop. Enjoy.

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

This week's community partner is Westerville Police Division.

We will not see J-Pops and Malabar Peach and Apple Orchard this week.

Market Wednesday fresh-picked selections include sweet potatoes, peppers, garlic, squash varieties, greens, potatoes, turnips, pumpkins, chestnuts, and varieties of crisp apples.

Artisan vendor selections include loaf breads and bagels, sheep's milk cheese, pie!, organic grass-fed cow's milk cheese, maple syrup, tortilla chips, salsas, jam, empanadas, dessert breads, cookies, biscotti, rubs, barbecue sauce, maple sugar, marinades, and confections.

Fox Hollow Farm features naturally-raised beef, pork, lamb, and chicken. Flying J Farm features grass-fed beef.

Just a note: Fox Hollow Farm also sells fresh eggs, which are sometimes available at market, and always available through pre-order. You can place an order with Fox Hollow Farms ahead of time through their online order option (very simple), including eggs, and your order will be ready for pick-up. After the market season, you can continue to place orders with Fox Hollow Farms, they stop by Uptown Westerville regularly, between seasons, for order pick-ups. 

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. through October 28th (that's three more markets!) @ N. State and E. Home Streets in Uptown Westerville.

See you at the market!
