COhatch Maker at the Market
Simply Vela Candle Co. was created out of a desire for a gorgeous-smelling, clean-burning candle that not only smells great before the first burn, but is just as fragrant, time and time again.
Simply Vela candles are handcrafted in small batches and are made with all-natural soy wax, high-quality fragrance oils and cotton wicks. We do not add color dyes to our candles, nor do any of our products contain paraffin wax or phthalates.
Simply Vela is a proud Ohio-based company. All of our candles are wicked, hand-poured, cut, and packaged with care in our home, located in Columbus. We hope you connect with our brand and love our products as much as we love making them for you!
Find Simply Vela owner Noell Garza in Booth #44 in front of Dewey's Pizza!

Zucchini is Everywhere!
Somebody opened the zucchini floodgates and now multiple producers have them! A type of summer squash, zucchini came from a squash variety grown in Central and South America over 7,000 years ago. Italians in Milan cultivated our modern zucchini in the 19th Century.
Zucchini’s pleasant, mild flavor makes it is incredibly versatile. It can be eaten raw in salads or roasted, steamed, baked, fried, or grilled. And of course it can be used for bread as well as cookies, pancakes and much more! Besides being low in calories and high in fiber, zucchini is high in antioxidants and has compounds like zeaxanthin that may prevent cancer.
Another summer squash to check out is patty pan. The have a mild flavor like zucchini and are shaped like flying saucers! Check them out at Nine 9 Farm.
The Versatile Vegan is a big fan of ratatouille and suggests this Ratatouille Baked Penne. Looking for some crunch? Try these Baked Chili-Lime Zucchini Chips. And when it’s time for dessert it’s hard to beat these Fudgy Zucchini Brownies!
The blueberry season will be starting at Gillogly! But come early because they are sure to go fast. Franklinton Farms will have cucumbers. Oakleaf will have loads of English shelling peas and Tilley Farmstead will continue to have garlic bulbs. Stokeshire Farm will have their greens mix with edible flowers.

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!
