Uptown Westerville is a A Place for the Farmers' Market

The July 1st Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is a great place to stock up for the July 4th Weekend:

We are grillin' and cookout friendly with certified organic, chemical-free, and conventional produce, chutneys, maple products, including maple barbecue sauce, baked goods that include pies, cookies, biscotti, confections, and breads, cheese, beef, lamb, jams, jellies, rubs and seasonings.

Jane Varley of Varley Valley will have fresh-baked Challah or Totally Wheat Hamburger Buns, perfect for July 4th Grilling.

Sue Renner of Sue's Kitchen is featuring red (cherry), white (apple), and blue (blueberry) pies!

And, Nature's Honey is featuring Lucky Dog dog soap in today's selection.

Along with her chutneys (perfect compliment to outdoor meals), Arjay Gourmet will feature Rohini's baked goods: Cardamom Cookies, Crispy Rice Snack Mix, Cashew Nut Chocolate, Indian Crackers (Farsi Puri), Pumpkin Nut Bread, Strawberry Cupcakes, Whole Wheat Flour Cookies, Zucchini Halvah.

Blue Jacket Dairy has news! Angel King tells us: The long wait is over! We are bringing Fresh Mozzarella with us to market today. Make sure to pick up some tomatoes and fresh basil while you are at the market.

Speckled Hen Farm will open for business at the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market on July 8th, so we won't see Brooke at the market this week. Speckled Hen features fresh eggs, chicken, and chicken products (like sausage).

The 2009 Market Photo Tours for June 17th and June 24th are now available on flickr.com. So, click here to take the tour!

We've added a new set of photos to our flickr.com collection for this year's market -- Batter and Bowl's cut-out cookie!
Each week Batter and Bowl's Sara Yates brings a special cut-out cookie to the market for just $1 each. From Dragonflys to Tropical Fish, it's fun to see what Sara will bring this week!

We are pleased to announce that market vendors accepted $285 in WARM Fresh Green vouchers in May and June combined. WUMA and The Uptown Westerville Farmers’ Market support WARM. -- the Westerville Area Resource Ministry. WARM and the Farmers’ Market have teamed up so farm fresh, healthy foods can be available to everyone in the Westerville area: The WARM Fresh Green Program.

WARM Volunteers will be collecting non-perishables during this Saturday's Rotary Club of Westerville's July 4th Parade. Click here to learn more about W.A.R.M.

(By the way, the parade start time is 1 p.m.)

Weather predictions for the afternoon during market hours are a 50% chance of rain -- which is also a 50% chance of no rain! And, in spite of clouds, it's a cool day with a breeze. The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is open rain or shine. Shopping between raindrops just makes the adventure all the more interesting. Pack your rain gear and keep in mind, each merchant is under canopy.

Frijolito Farm has ended its 2009 market season.

Remember, while you're at the market... take a walk Uptown -- and Shop Uptown Westerville.

Meza, 48 N. State, always has Market Wednesday features including pantry and wine pairing suggestions and a $1 wine tasting! With a variety of foods and wines, including lots of made-in-Ohio, make Meza a stop for your cookout supplies on your July 4th shopping list.

The Westerville Uptown Merchants Association presents the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market. The market is open from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. each Wednesday through October at N. State and E. Home Streets. See you at the market!

Note: Use your best judgment in all weather situations. In the event of lightning, the market will suspend operations to focus on personal safety. Photo image: Sweet Thing Gourmet jams by Linda Foor. ©2009 Brickstreet Communications. All rights reserved.
