COhatch Makers at the Market
Cards by Kathy
Inspired by nature and architecture found in her own backyard and around the world, Kathy creates multi-layered 3-dimensional assemblages from a variety of re-purposed and handcrafted materials. Photographs––primarily taken by her husband of 40 years (and a Market volunteer!) –– form the focal point of many of Kathy’s stationery and mixed media works, which layer elements ranging from artisan paper to simple paper dinner napkins.
Kathy comes from multiple generations of skilled Ohio folk artists. Her current work follows decades of dabbling in diverse fields such as flower pressing, basket weaving, needlework, painting, metalwork, jewelry making and photo restoration.
Visit Kathy in space #56 at the Worthington Farmers Market this Saturday to see all of her cards, boxes and other treasures.
Daphnia Ceramics is a Columbus-based ceramics studio run by Emily Cline. Emily makes everything by hand, combining her passion for printmaking with her ceramic work. She uses hand-drawn images and turns them into screen-printed patterns that are transferred to the surface of the clay.
Many of her patterns are inspired by the local flora and fauna of the woods here in Central Ohio including morel mushrooms, ferns, chicory flowers and spicebush. Find Emily in space #37.

Can I Bring My Dog to the Outdoor Market?
Well-socialized and well-behaved dogs are welcome to accompany visitors to the Worthington Farmers Market.
We ask that pet owners abide by these rules to make a pet’s visit to the Market a good experience for everyone:
Pets must be kept on a short leash.
Pets must be under control and by the owner’s side at all times.
Keep pets away from produce, plants, and other food products.
Pets must be friendly with other pets and people of all ages.
Be considerate—not everyone loves your pet; some customers are fearful and others are allergic to animals.
Please clean up after your pet.
Current Operational Guidelines
Facial coverings are optional, though recommended for unvaccinated people.
Space between vendor booths has increased to ensure maximum aisle width. Form lines in empty spaces next to booths to allow other pedestrians to pass and keep traffic flowing in the main aisles and sidewalks.
Sanitize your hands often. Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the Market space.
Only touch the products that you intend to buy. Or, allow the farmer or food maker to select your products for you.
All extracurricular activities (music at the market, busking, Market Sprouts, cooking demonstrations, etc.) have been postponed until further notice.
And, remember, if you have a fever or if you are not feeling well, please stay home.
Thank you for your continued support, cooperation and patience!
