Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: June 22nd Market Report

Summer is a period of luxurious growth. To be in harmony with the atmosphere of summer, awaken early in the morning and reach to the sun for nourishment to flourish as the gardens do. Work, play, travel, be joyful, and grow into selfless service. The bounty of the outside world enters and enlivens us. [Paul Pitchford]

Welcome to the first Market Wednesday of Summer!

Today's vendor line-up: Lona Belle's Home Baked Goods, Doran's Family Farm, Hinton Apiaries, Flying J Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Fox Hollow Farm, Pleiades Maple Products, Miss Cristy’s Bakery, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Montezuma Sauces and Salsas, Sugar B Bakery, Sippel Family Farm/Kokoborrego Cheese Co., 8 Sisters Bakery, and Fox Hollow Garden.

We will not see J-Pops this week (Steve will be back next week). And, Ohio Farm Direct is out.

This week's community partner is Westerville Public Library.

What produce can you find at the market today? Beets, radishes, swiss chard, kale, lettuce, turnips, sugar snap peas, cucumbers, and summer squash.

Artisan foods include hummus, fresh-baked bagels, bread, scones, cookies, pies & pastries, sheep's milk & cow's milk cheese, honey, maple syrup, jam, biscotti, salsas, hot sauce, and tortilla chips.

Market meats are available at Flying J Farm (grass-fed beef), Fox Hollow Farm (pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb, and chicken), and Sippel Family Farm/Kokoborrego Cheese Co. (lamb, grass-fed beef, whey-fed pork).

There may be fresh eggs available at Fox Hollow Farm. Jesse Rickard of Fox Hollow Farm recommends ordering eggs ahead of time online (so easy) to be sure.

Today's market weather report features cloudy skies, temperatures in the mid 70s (the elevated humidity pushes the "feels like" temps up to a muggy 5° to 6° higher), and a light breeze.

Right now, the forecast has changed from earlier this morning to only an elevated chance of rain (44%) between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio. Wednesdays, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. through October 26th @ N. State and E. Home Streets in Uptown Westerville.

Browse. Visit. Taste. Shop. Enjoy. Market Wednesday.

See you at the market!
