Come Early for Eggs!

Farm fresh eggs are undoubtedly one of the most popular market products. Arriving early helps ensure you find them -- and especially as the weather cools and egg production slows. In order to consistently lay eggs, hens need about 16 hours of daylight and 8 hours of darkness when they're roosting. Once less than 12 hours of daylight is available, egg production decreases considerably.

 

Veggie Spy & Versatile Vegan


Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month runs through October 15 and the Versatile Vegan has selected some yummy vegan versions of traditional recipes. Let’s start with Green Chile Salsa. A key ingredient is tomatillos, which you can get from several producers including Cottage Garden, Toad Hill, and Sippel. Jalapeno peppers can be found at Franklinton Farms and there’s plenty of garlic from several vendors. Onions can be obtained from Oakleaf and others.

Next, try this quick recipe for Mexican Potatoes. Oakleaf and Raber Family Organics have potatoes. And tomatoes can be found from several vendors.

Sudado de Berenjena is an eggplant stew inspired by a popular Colombian chicken dish. Eggplant can be purchased from Tilley Farmstead and Toad Hill. And Tilley Farmstead also has carrots.

Empanada fans (and the empanada curious) should check out this Argentinian Empanada recipe. It includes instructions for two types of fillings: Mushroom with Kale, and Sweet Potatoes with Lentils. Visit Mayapple Farms for mushrooms, and kale can be found at Cottage Garden, Franklinton Farms, Rock Dove, and others. Sweet potatoes are available from Tilley Farmstead and Raber.


Or you can let Patty’s Kitchen do the cooking and enjoy their excellent Yucatan style Tamales. They are located on the Southwest Village Green.

Other Finds


This is likely the last weekend for sweet corn! Grab some while you can from Wishwell.






Gillogly has apple cider along with their usual wide variety of apples. Saums has an enormous variety of decorative squash, including massive ones and squash towers. They also have edible pumpkins. Several growers have radishes. Cottage Garden has watermelon radishes, which are bright pink on the inside.

Raber and Wishwell have broccoli. Pleiades has chestnuts. Franklinton Farms and Raber have leeks. Franklinton Farms also expects to have spiceberries, which come from the spicebush.

Need Cash? Buy Tokens!


Small, local producers working on thin margins sometimes forego credit cards to avoid the fees. If you don’t have cash, head to the Information Booth where you can buy $5 wood tokens with a credit or debit card. All the vendors take them, they give change back in cash, and the tokens never expire. There is a $1 dollar transaction fee, regardless the amount.


SNAP/EBT Customers: use your Ohio Direction or Ohio P-EBT card to earn FREE Produce Perks to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables and food-bearing plants!

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.
