Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market
The market is held on Wednesday afternoons at the corner of North State and East Home streets. It is a small market but highly selective about vendors, choosing the best vegetable growers, meat farmers, and quality producers. We appreciated that in the compact space we didn't have to sift through crafts or junk to find good, real food.
On this particular Wednesday in early May, Lil paired bread samples from Dan the Baker with Sweet Thing Gourmet jam. I picked up asparagus from Flying J Farm and asked for radishes from Bird's Haven Farms, though they didn't have any yet. We checked in at the Swainway Urban Farm tent where we will work every other week starting in June.
We easily found free parking less than a block away from the market. If we had more time, we could have explored the many shops and small eateries in uptown. It is a good idea to pack a cooler or insulated bag to keep your purchases chilled if you want to tour uptown Westerville.
The crowd was friendly and full but not uncomfortably crowded. Like most seasonal markets, I expect Uptown Westerville will attract more shoppers as farmers are able to bring a bigger variety of produce. It's a great little market with plenty of real, local food.
Wednesdays weekly May - October 3 - 6 pm
