Uptown Westerville is a Place for Fresh and Delicious

Each week, the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is featuring more and more fresh produce!

The market colors grow richer as long days in warm sun and soil move us from the patina greens of lettuces and asparagus in the spring to rich reds, yellows, oranges, deep greens, purples and blues.

This past week, market patrons shopped for green beans, tomatoes, swiss chard, cucumbers, zucchini and varieties of yellow and summer squash, cauliflower, broccoli, potatoes, onions, garlic, cabbage, jalapeno and banana peppers, beets, cherries, and more!

Market farms carry fresh eggs, poultry, beef, and lamb.

Certified-organic, chemical free, or conventional. Ohio Proud.

The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market welcomes new vendor Luna Burger - a vegetarian burger (perfect for the grill).

The market's artisan food vendors offer jams, jellies, chutneys, organic flour, baked goods like muffins, brownies, pies, cookies, coffee breads, fresh breads, specialty breads, and bar cookies, goat's milk cheese, cow's milk cheese, raw honey, seasonings and rubs.

As you walk through the market, notice the deep jewel tones of market jams and jellies in the afternoon sun.

And, look for personal care products made from food ingredients like goat's milk, oatmeal, coffee, and honey that include soaps, scrubs, moisturizer, lip balm.

You'll visit, you'll taste, you'll browse, you'll buy! Take your time and just enjoy.
