Uptown Westerville is a Place for Market Wednesdays

This week marks Week 12 of the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market. The market meets rain or shine (all vendors have a canopy) and weather reports as of this posting, call for some rain at noon, a cloudy afternoon (without rain), and some precip around 5 p.m.

The Market Photo Tours for week's 10 and 11 are now uploaded to

We are starting to head into the best parts of the produce season -- peppers, tomatoes, green beans, and sweet corn. The colors are vibrant and the flavors rich.

We will not see Bridgman Farm this week, but Mary tells us that she will be here next week with lots of tomatoes. Sweet Thing Gourmet will also not be at this week's market (we'll see Mark and Kyla next week).

The Westerville Uptown Merchants Association encourages you to Shop Uptown Westerville while you're Uptown for the market. Be sure to stop by Meza at 48 N. State for great compliments to your market purchases. Owner Tatjana Brown also can help with wine pairings, serving suggestions, and on Wednesday afternoons features a $1 wine tasting.

Use your best judgment in a thunderstorm, in case of lightning, market suspends operations. Photo image: Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market welcome sign at N. State and E. Home by Linda Foor. ©2009 Brickstreet Communications. All rights reserved.
