Uptown Westerville is a Place for Market Wednesdays

The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market season begins on Wednesday, May 5th at 3 p.m. at N. State and E. Home Streets in the Church of the Messiah, UM parking lot.

Market favorite vendors are returning for another season and the market's added some new vendors, too. The market is open for business every Wednesday, May through October, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio.

The market meets rain or shine (within reason and with common sense -- in the case of lightning, market activity will supsend (to resume once the storm passes) and at that point, it's every man, woman, and child for themselves!!) and all market vendors have canopies.

The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market has a new web address this season (still working on the updated web site: right now, we have the home page and market directory): and email address:

The blog is the same:

UWFM has a new logo: The logo with the ginkgo leaf represents the market seasons from spring to fall and Uptown Westerville. Besides the big, beautiful ginkgo tree at City Hall, State Street is lined with young ginkgo trees. The ginkgo tree is an ancient tree that represents resilience, longevity, prosperity, wisdom, hope, and peace. We couldn't think of a better symbol for the community or the market.

WARM (Westerville Area Resource Ministry) and the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market are teaming up for year 3 of the WARM Fresh Green Program.
Through the WARM Fresh Green Program market vendors accept Fresh Green vouchers so anyone in greater Westerville (the Westerville City School district) can purchase healthy fresh produce, fruit-bearing plants, and artisan foods no matter their need. In 2009, market vendors honored $2,470 in WARM Fresh Green vouchers and every eligible market vendor participated!
If you would like to donate to the WARM Fresh Green Program, contact WARM via or email: or phone: 614.899.0196.
Make Market Wednesdays a part of your summer routine -- dine Uptown Westerville for lunch, shop, visit, browse Uptown Westerville, and bring some farm-fresh home for dinner from the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market.
See you at the market!
