Freezer Meal February
We are excited to team up with Stephie from The Freezer Meal Club for “Make One, Freeze One” Fridays in February.
Stephie recently stopped by the Worthington Farmers Market and will share a new recipe with us every Friday this month, using some of the ingredients she found at the market.
(We got a sneak-peek at the line-up for the month and they are the "bomb-diggity!")
A little about Stephie . . . to put it simply, she is the queen of freezer meal prep. She currently runs The Freezer Meal Club where she helps busy families simplify dinnertime with easy make-ahead meal plans. Prior to The Freezer Meal Club, she delivered delicious dinners all over Columbus as the Retro Dinner Diva.
Look for Stephie's first Freezer Market Meal this Friday! You can then decide whether you want to make one and freeze one (for later). Or freeze it forward....and share one with a friend!

February is National Snack Month! And, you're gonna need some snacks for #SuperSunday.
Market volunteer Sam, has an all-star match up for you: Pulled pork from Oink Moo Cluck Farms, already cooked and seasoned, ready to warm in the Crockpot, atop buttermilk ciabatta bread from FromagerieOhio.
According to Sam's taste test, the ciabatta, with its crispy crust and delicate flavor, proved superior than the normal white buns you'd use in BBQ pork sandwiches. You could make mini sandwiches with the two or just dip the ciabatta in the remnants of the sauce.
Thanks, Sam, for our first #perfectpairings, Super Sunday edition! And, we'll see YOU on Saturday!
Our First Taste-Along!
Date night, Girls Night In, or some well-deserved "me" time...It's Saturday night, and you're invited to join the Worthington Farmers Market for a virtual cheese and wine pairing with Kokoborrego Cheese Company in celebration of their 10-year anniversary!
Join us on Facebook Live on the Worthington Farmers Market Facebook page at 5 pm on Saturday, February 20!
You’ll meet the cheese makers (virtually, of course!) - sister and brother team, Lisa Sippel and Ben Baldwin of Kokoborrego Cheese Company and Sippel Family Farm.
Lisa and Ben have selected four (4) of their seasonal cheeses to showcase during the tasting . . .
Two sheep's milk varieties: Oveja Negra and Owl Creek Tomme
Two cow's milk varieties: Headwaters Tomme and Enceladus (a Market management FAVORITE!)
The cheese package costs $30. Order directly from Kokoborrego - http://www.kokoborrego.com/store
Pre-order your cheese package for the Taste-Along for shipping to your home (shipping charges applied at checkout) *OR* pick-up at the Worthington Farmers Market on the Saturday of your choice (Feb 6, Feb 13 or Feb 20).
Donnie Austin, Worthington resident, and sommelier has put together excellent recommendations for wines to complement each individual cheese as well as a single bottle (or two!) that pair well with the cow's milk or sheep's milk cheeses, or the entire cheese flight. A full description of Donnie's wine recommendations can be found in the WFM Facebook Event content, along with suggested food accompaniments also available at the market.
Ready to join? Please register here to let us know you're coming: https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/MTA3NTA2
This is a virtual event, so there are no tickets. There is no cost to participate beyond the purchase of the cheese (and any wine and/or accompaniments you may choose).
Donations to the Worthington Farmers Market, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, are greatly appreciated and can be made at the time of registration.
An RSVP through our registration site will ensure you are notified of all future Taste-Along events!

The health and safety of our customers, our producers, our volunteers and our staff remains our highest priority. We remain committed to our pandemic safety protocol to continue to provide a direct source for local food. Masks are required for all guests visiting the Worthington Farmers Market and must cover nose and mouth at all times.
Capacity into the Market space is limited to ensure proper social distancing. And, space between producer stalls has increased to allow for wider aisles and additional space for customers waiting to make their purchases. Our pandemic safety protocol can be found here: https://www.worthingtonfarmersmarket.com/covid-19-operations
We will continue to adhere to the requirements set forth for us by the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Columbus Public Health Department. Should we need to change the format of the Market, we will post updates on our website: https://www.worthingtonfarmersmarket.com/
