In 1987, with permission from City Manager, Dave Elder, the Worthington Farmers Market began. What started as a PhD dissertation project for two women in Sustainable Agriculture at The Ohio State University has become a year-round tradition in Worthington, Ohio. 

According to market advocate and Worthington resident, Julie Weatherington-Rice, "...the Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District was a very early supporter.


Once established, the market was nurtured and managed by the local businesses, and from there, a business association, the Old Worthington Business Association (OWBA), which is known today as The Worthington Partnership. 

The Worthington Farmers Market was managed by Jan Staats until 2009, when she passed. Today, it is managed by Christine Hawks, Karen Chrestay and a dedicated group of volunteers from the greater Columbus community.
