Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: August 21st Market Report


Wednesday in Uptown Westerville in the summer? Must be a farm fresh day!

The weather forecast is serving up a hot, humid, mostly cloudy summer afternoon, with temperatures in the mid-to-high 80s, humidity and a breeze. And, yes, there is a 51% chance of rain between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.

We welcome Branstool Orchards to the 2019 Market Wednesday season.

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


We will not see Java Central this week.

This week's community partners are Westerville Electric Division/Westerville Water Division.

Traffic report: The State Street 'Plane and Overlay' project seems to be winding down. And, the 'Uptown Improvements' project (and Columbia Gas project) works continue - there are steel plates in the northbound and turn lanes near Hanby School. Traffic is maintained for these projects, so look for "lane redefinition" via orange cones, road surface grade changes, steel plates, construction activity (people and equipment on the move), and slower speeds. For the updated low-down on construction around town: check out GoWesterville. https://westerville.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Shortlist/index.html?appid=37b3f438706b4f989d515d82ac0d18c4

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.

Dress cool. Be cool. Stay cool. Temperatures will be mid-to-high 80s, and with the elevated humidity, add 7°. Look for partly cloudy skies and a 9 mph wind (would that the breeze sustain all afternoon - that will really help). And, we can't seem to shake it, there is a 51% chance of rain between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Uptown Westerville Farrmers' Market: August 14th Market Report


It's a good day for a good day and it's a farm fresh Wednesday in Uptown Westerville.

This week's forecast is offering up a pretty nice weather day, with temperatures in the low-to-mid 80s, a light breeze, partly cloudy skies, only slightly elevated humidity. and a 7% chance of precip.

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

Traffic report: The State Street 'Plane and Overlay' project is still going on between Lee Terrace and Walnut, but winding down - the road surface is now level and newly paved, looks like there is still some lane painting left to do. And, the 'Uptown Improvements' project (and Columbia Gas project) works continue. The space in front of Hanby School is mostly complete - a crew will eventually replace the brick - as they had to use placeholder brick due to a shipping error. Traffic is maintained for these projects, so look for "lane redefinition" via orange cones, road surface grade changes, steel plates, construction activity (people and equipment on the move), and slower speeds.

Just a reminder, Westerville City Schools are now in-session.

Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: August 7th Weather Outlook


Everywhere I go, I always look for creative entrepreneurs, whether it's artisans and craftsmen, small farmers and gardeners, or restaurateurs who use fresh, locally sourced ingredients. I admire the courage and self-reliance it takes to start your own business and make it succeed. [Martha Stewart] Celebrating National Farmers' Market Week!

Taking a look at this week's weather: Look for a visually beautiful day (mostly sunny skies, fluffy clouds) that will feel hot (temps in the 80s/feels like in the low 90s) and muggy with a little bit of a breeze (7 mph). If we can get past the 51% chance of rain during market set up, we expect a window of time throughout market hours that is precipitation free.
