The Veggie Spy is Back!
Pass the Peas Please!
It’s time for peas at the Market! Several producers expect to have their first batches of peas available for your tasting pleasure. Peas are legumes (as are beans) which means they are not technically vegetables. But, the Veggie Spy is not a stickler for such formalities and loves peas!
Humans foraged wild peas long before they were domesticated. There is evidence Neanderthals were eating peas 45,000 years ago. Peas are thought to have been first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent 10,000 years ago and then spread all over the world.
There are hundreds of varieties of peas, but they are categorized into 3 major groups: English, snap, and snow. English (or garden) peas are very popular in general, but less common in Farmers Markets because the pod is not edible, so effort is required to remove the peas from their shell. Snow peas are flat with an edible pod and are popular in Chinese cooking. Sugar snap peas look like English peas but have an edible pod and (obviously!) tend to be sweeter.
Franklinton Farms plans to have sugar snap peas and pea shoots. Toad Hill Farm expects to have both snow and sugar snap peas. 9N Farm hopes to have sugar snap peas. Stokeshire Farm will have pea shoots. Jorgensen has sweet pea microgreens.
If you love peas as much as the Versatile Vegan does, you’ll go for this combo Sugar Snap and Snow Pea Stir Fry recipe. And you can get the green onions at Cottage Garden! Another great option is to grab some delicious carrots from Jorgensen and make Stir Fry Snow Peas with Carrots!
Are you concerned about embarrassing yourself at the dinner table by chasing peas around your plate? You can rest easy because here is surely most elegant way to consume peas courtesy of an "etiquette expert"!
Strawberry Update Rhoads and Rock Dove will have strawberries, so stock up! If you’re a crumble fan the Versatile Vegan suggests this easy Five Ingredient Strawberry Crumble.
We are past peak asparagus, but you can still find some at Anderson Orchards, Cottage Garden, and Wishwell! Oakleaf has German Giant radishes. Yes, they are really big!
Franklinton Farms has broccolini and kohlrabi. Purple carrots are back at Jorgensen! And you can find a beautiful lettuce mix with multiple types of greens and edible flowers at Stokeshire Farm Fresh Picks for This Week Producers have the following available for online pre-order and/or at the Outdoor Market.

We CAN Fight Hunger - Wanted: Canned Tomatoes and Beans for the Worthington Resource Pantry
THIS SATURDAY! Donate canned food items to benefit the Worthington Resource Pantry's efforts to fight hunger in our neighborhood. Canned tomatoes and canned beans are especially needed.
We're pleased to have local Girl Scout Troop 1155 leading this community initiative as part of their Sow What education.
Girl Scout Troop 1155 is a multi-school troop of rising sophomores at Thomas Worthington, Worthington Kilbourne, and Linworth high schools. This group of girls is working on completing their Sow What journey, which is the last step they need before they are eligible to start on their Gold Awards - the highest honor in Girl Scouts.
The Sow What journey explores global issues of food and land use and the roles we play as consumers, as well as related social and community issues. Through this journey, the girls are talking with community experts, exploring ways they can change their behavior and get others involved and work on creating change in their communities.
Canned food and monetary donations will be accepted this Saturday at the Worthington Resource Pantry table at the southwest corner of High Street and W. New England Ave.
COhatch Maker at the Market - The Tart Peach
Indulge in some summer self-care this weekend with the colorful line of locally made nail polish, lip stick, tint, balm and brow tint from The Tart Peach - the COhatch Maker at the Market. Each Saturday in June, as part of our partnership with Worthington-based COhatch, we'll be featuring a local maker at the Market.
This Saturday, you'll find Jordan Penix, owner of The Tart Peach, in booth #56, between the Graeter's parking lot and E. New England Ave. We asked Jordan how she got started with her own cosmetics line:
"It all started with a do it yourself lip balm kit, a curiosity to know what was in my lip products, and a passion for lip color.
After hours of searching for ingredient lists in many of my favorite name-brand lipsticks, I'd come up short. I couldn't find them, or when I could, they would have 50+ ingredients, some of which I couldn't pronounce or understand. I became curious; what are they trying to hide, and why am I putting it on my face?
Since then, I have been hand-making lipstick and other lip products in my Columbus, Ohio studio. More recently, I've added hand-poured nail polishes, lash and brow tints, and hope to add other cosmetics further down the road!"

I think Matcha, pictured here, is the perfect farmers market green!

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!
The Worthington Partnership is pleased to announce that COhatch is furthering its investment in the Worthington community. Together the organizations will continue to drive initiatives to bring positive attention to the historic district, and support professional development and educational seminars for local merchants and business owners. The Partnership also will support soon-to-be-announced COhatch community events geared toward improving the lives of local residents.
COhatch will provide funding, hosting venues and people resources to help design and plan future programs for the community in collaboration with the Old Worthington Partnership. You will also see the COhatch airstream trailer, a multi-purpose office on wheels named "Mobi" at various events.
Thanks to COhatch for bringing energy and resources to Old Worthington! We are thrilled to work even more closely together to enhance the Old Worthington experience.
