A Salute to Fruit!
The August Market cornucopia is piled high with fruit! Let’s start with berries. Franklinton Farms plans to have blackberries and Aronia berries, the tiny berries that are astringent when fresh but get milder when frozen and are great in smoothies. The Blueberry Patch will be back with blueberries and blueberry baked goods. This may be their last week for the season - so don’t miss them!
Raber Family Organics has amazing watermelons. Wishwell has melons and Saums hopes to have some too. Gillogly has white and yellow peaches, and their plums are getting started. Their apple line-up will be adding Mollies Delicious, a red-yellow variety that is crisp and sweet.
The Versatile Vegan likes this refreshing Peachy Quinoa and Arugula Salad. Gazpacho fans should check out this Cantaloupe Gazpacho with Blueberry and Basil. And what could be better than Vegan Blueberry Peach Cobbler – the perfect summer dessert!
Anderson Orchards hopes to have okra. 9N has small candy onions. Oakleaf expects to have Romano green beans; they are flat and elongated with a meatier flavor than a round green bean. Mayapple Farms has ginger and turmeric plants along with several mushroom varieties. Saums has cabbage. Tilley Farmstead and Raber have ground cherries. Raber also has broccoli. Saums, Raber, and Wishwell have sweet corn. Somerset Herbs has shishito peppers.
The Market has over 15 producers selling fruits and/or vegetables. From amaranth greens (Franklinton Farms) to zucchinis (too many to list) there’s lots to explore and discover!

Masks Are Optional
Effective Thursday, March 10, the Worthington city ordinance that required masks in indoor public places has been lifted. Facial coverings are now optional throughout the City of Worthington.
We will have a limited supply of masks available at the Market information desk (located at the corner of S. High Street & New England Avenue in front of the Graeter's Ice Cream and House Wine parking lot), should you wish to wear one while visiting the Market.
We will continue with our other proactive measures to help reduce the spread of illness including having hand sanitizer available throughout the Market and increased spacing between producer booths.
If you have a fever or are feeling ill, we ask that you please stay home.
