Worthington Farmers Market - Last Outdoor Market for the Season!


Fresh Picks from our Veggie Spy

How Long Since You've Had Quince?

Most folks have never tried quince, and they are missing out! This unusual fruit is much better cooked than raw, and its high pectin content makes it ideal for jams and jellies. It works for pies, as well. Leave quince on a sunny windowsill, and it will slowly release a delicate fragrance of vanilla and citrus. You can find quince at Anderson Orchards.

Remember, the Market moves indoors to the Shops Worthington Place starting next Saturday, Novembern 2. There's still plenty of produce in November, so watch for the next Veggie Spy report with all the tasty details!

More to do at the Market!

No Market Fitness Tomorrow

Due to the chilly and damp mornings and the forecast for rain, there will be no fitness class offered on the Village Green tomorrow.

Popcorn Sale to Support Cub Scout Pack #843

Stop by our Community Table booth, in the Graeter's parking lot, tomorrow, to purchase popcorn from our hosts - Cub Scout Pack #843. Your popcorn purchase helps to fund the activities that the Scouts enjoy throughout each year. 70% of each popcorn purchase goes directly back to the the Cub Scout unit and council and is the only fundraiser that they perform for the Scouts for the year.

Acoustic Performance by Mark Zonakis - Musician at the Market

Weather permitting, we'll have an encore performance by acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter, Mark Zonakis.

Born and raised in Columbus, with short stints in California and Arizona, his music invokes a mix of both Midwestern and Western imagery. As a self-taught songwriter, Mark was influenced by folk legends like Nick Drake and Bob Dylan and current artists, Ray Lamontagne and Joe Purdy.

Stop by Dewey's Plaza, tomorrow, between 10am and 12pm to enjoy his unique and soulful sound and to pick up his newly released album!

The Market Wellness Doctor's Weekly Health Tip

Visit Dr. Matt in booth #74, near Dewey's Plaza

Lifestyle Matters. How we eat, move, sleep and manage stress has an enormous impact on health and longevity.

Beneficial Effects of Meditation on Inflammation

Lifestyle interventions like mindfulness, meditation and yoga are shown to improve immune function.

If you struggle with stressful chronic inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma, there is ever increasing empirical support that meditation is beneficial for such conditions.

Chemical markers of inflammation have shown improvement in studies utilizing mindfulness training and meditation. Yoga has been shown in studies to reduce inflammation across a multitude of chronic inflammatory conditions.(1)

Gut microbiome health has been shown to be adversely affected by increased production of stress hormones. As stress is reduced, the healthy microbiota increase the production of short chain fatty acids which leads to anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor effects.(2)

See you at the Market!

Be Well,
