We are delighted to welcome Mud Run Farm to the market this Saturday, October 22, and as a potential new vendor for the indoor winter market beginning in November.
Mud Run Farm is a diverse, certified organic farm in western Stark County, Ohio. Operated by a father and daughter team and powered with draft horses with a focus on growing and milling small grains, they are trying to make fresh flour more common place. Offering Spelt, Oats, Wheat, Corn, Pancake Mix, Maple Syrup, and Eggs. Come talk grains! They also grow and dry a variety of beans.
Look for items like corn meal, Einkorn, rolled and steel-cut oats, buckwheat flour, Jacobs Cattle Beans, Great Northern Beans, Black Turtle Beans, garlic, onions and potatoes and . . . Eggs!
Find Mud Run Farm in space #18-19 near AR Workshop (former Oakleaf Farm location).
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.
Scoop Up All Your Fall Faves this Saturday!
We're back on High Street #inworthington from 8am-12pm. And, you'll find these awesome canvas totes available for purchase at the Market welcome booth (corner of High Street & E. New England Avenue). Proceeds from the purchase of these bags benefit the Worthington Farmers Market.
We're heart-broken to learn of the passing of Greg Ruter, bison rancher and owner of Owl Creek Bison. We loved getting to know Greg, Jacqueline and their family. Their passion for and knowledge of bison and how best to prepare the meat using some of their tried and true recipes was always appreciated. Greg always had a smile and a kind word. He will be dearly missed. https://www.hodappfuneralhome.com/obituaries/gregory-rutter
The family is selling the herd and remaining inventory and closing the business. If you'd like to make a purchase, you may do so on the website and pick-up at the farm. https://owlcreekbison.com/buy-now
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!
Be Happy, Buy Local

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.
