Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: July 10th Market Report


If it's a summer's Wednesday in Uptown Westerville, it's a great day for a farmers' market.

This week's weather forecast calls for a visually beautiful day with temperatures in the high-80s (with a feels-like 11° higher), elevated humidity, partly cloudy skies, a 6 to 7 mph wind, and the usual 51% chance of a pop-up between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. This is going to be a sizzler of a day, so dress cool, be cool, stay cool.

Reminder: Gene and Phil from Messiah have water and lemonade (free) under the awning at The Gathering Place, where there are restrooms, and the building is air conditioned - so a cool-off is steps away if you need it! Take care.

Today's vendor line-up includes: Hinton Apiaries, Flying J Farm, Bird's Haven Farms, Made Without Grain, Sweet Thing Gourmet, Montezuma Brand Sauces and Salsas, Kingdom Fish, Kingdom Farms, Hummavore, Ohio Farm Direct, Ohio City Pasta, and Lona Belle's Home Baked Goods.

We may see Annabelle's Blooms this week.

We will not see Doran's Farm Market today. (The sweet corn is coming on and is a week or two away.)

Home grown. Home made. All Ohio. The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market opens for business each Wednesday, from May through October, between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. at North State and East Home Streets.

It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato. [Lewis Grizzard]

Hot town, summer in the city describes this week's weather forecast.  We're looking at temperatures in the high 80s, and due to the elevated humidity and 7 mph breeze, add about 11° to that - at least we have partly cloudy skies, so we are looking at a hot afternoon with just a little bit of air movement. And... a 51% chance of precip between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. (IF we see any precip it will probably be a pop-up.) Dress cool. Be cool. Stay cool.

Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate. [Alan D. Wolfelt]

If this forecast holds, we are looking forward to a nice afternoon to pick up a little farm fresh. Humid, with very little wind, will

make mid-70s temperatures feel more like low-80s, cloudy skies, and a minimal chance of precipitation up to the 5 o'clock hour. (Last night, that was a chance of rain between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (after market) and now it's creeped up into market hours - you know what it's been like the past few days - we'll keep an eye on that.)

Cooking is the ultimate giving. [Jamie Oliver]

In the current forecast, there is a 56% chance of rain during the first hour of the market. And, while rain is in the forecast during market hours, the chance of rain drops from 4 p.m. forward. The weather often changes in our favor, throughout the day, so keep a good thought. Otherwise, a pretty good farm-fresh afternoon with temps in the mid-to-high 70s and mostly cloudy skies; it will be windy with up to 13 mph winds (which will help offset the effects of the high humidity).

Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Market Space Access

We made some changes in the off-season when it comes to turning an active parking lot into a farmers' market. 

Many of you may be familiar with the saga of the "Is this car yours or do you know who it belongs to?" interloping parker - that one car that shows up in the parking lot on market day that we end up setting the market up around because no one claims the car and moves it.

Additionally, last year, in spite of our best efforts, we had some cars try to drive through the actual market space.

This is all a relatively new phenomenon (past couple seasons) and the parking lot "cone-off" that worked for twelve years, no longer works, we want our customers and vendors to be safe, so time for a change.

So, here's what's changed:

- Officer Shellie Patrick of the Westerville Police Division will be setting up the market space for Wednesdays on Tuesdays. 

- The market will post informational signs that the parking lot will be closed to public parking on Wednesdays from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for the market on Tuesdays.

- The E. Home Street parking lot access points will be closed on Wednesday mornings.

- The vendor pull-in spaces on the north side of the market space will be closed on Wednesday mornings.

- We want to keep the market space available for caregivers who drop-off and pick-up kids for Our Day Preschool and Vacation Bible School that take place at Messiah. So, caregivers can access the market space via the throughway along the south side of The Gathering Place, between N. State and the eastern parking lots. The market will replace the Tuesday night informational signs with an informational sign that states while the lot is closed to public parking, it is for Our Day and VBS drop-off and pick-up until 1:30 p.m.

- The lot access reserved for caregiver drop-off/pick-up will take place when Our Day Preschool is in session (this school year ends May 15th and the next school years begins the first week of September) and on June 26th for Vacation Bible School, otherwise access to the market space will be closed.

- Finally, the throughway from N. State Street to the eastern parking lots, along the south side of The Gathering Place will be closed when the market begins at 3:00 p.m. through market close at 6:00 p.m.

- Since the majority of the interloping parkers have been Otterbein University students. At the beginning of the next school year, the Otterbein University Police Department will notify students to avoid the parking lot on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during market season.

This is a theory right now, that is about to be tested with an active market day. We will adjust and adapt as we go. 

Most important: Enjoy the Market. Be Safe.
