Apply to the Market

Farmers Market Week 2021.JPG

The Worthington Farmers Market is a producer-only food marketplace.

The Worthington Farmers Market accepts applications from potential producers twice each year. Once, in the summer, for our winter market season (November-April) and again in late winter for our summer season (May-October).

If you did not make it, grow it or produce it, you cannot sell it.

Applications will be considered from Ohio farmers, growers and food makers. As space permits, we do occasionally consider value-added products (i.e. a honey producers that uses their beeswax to make candles). All products must be grown, raised or made in Ohio with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Products purchased at auctions or wholesale terminals are prohibited and will not be considered.

We are not currently considering applications for crafts, art, trinkets, community service organizations, professional services or related businesses.
