It’s (almost) FALL, Y’ALL!

And you know what that means… flawless foliage, humongous harvests, & spending as much time as possible OUTDOORS!


THANK YOU to everyone who either purchased a Lisa’s Maui Fruit Stand pop, made a donation or helped spread the word about our fundraiser these last couple of weeks! Due to your kindness, we were able to make a substantial donation to Lisa’s gofundme. Y’all are simply the best and it was truly heartwarming to witness our city care for people miles away in a time of need.

The Local Grind

September 23rd marks the Autumn Equinox where the Earth is perfectly angled sideways toward the sun so that day and night are of equal length. Celebrate this year's Autumn Equinox with some herbal support from The Local Grind!

These herbal products are intended to support whatever self-care may look like to you. So maybe choose to immerse yourself in a bath of herbs to recharge, enjoy a nice massage with our chai spiced lotion bar and inhale herbal aroma to stay grounded to who you are. My hope is that we can all slow down & enjoy the time as we transition into a new season.

This ritual box is available for pre-sale orders until September 1st! You can stop by our tent (Booth #9 on the Southwest Village Green) to preview the box & sign-up to claim yours! Thank You & Happy Autumn Equinox!

Silver Bridge Coffee Company

We are continuing our week long celebration by extending an invitation to YOU to also support the Café Femenino Foundation. Through your generous support over the years we have been able to fully fund 14 early childhood centers in rural Peru.

This winter our owner, Lorraine Walker, will travel to Peru to participate in Christmas hot chocolate or ‘Chocolatada Navideña’. This Peruvian tradition entails handing out home-made hot chocolate, Panetón or sweet breads, and small gifts to children in schools, churches, and communities in Peru. Chocolatada Navidena is an opportunity for all people in Peru to celebrate Christmas together.

He uses his platform to uplift others as much as he can and to give hope to those who don't believe they are worthy of artistic pursuits.

Ring Out!

Columbus Rings is a thriving community of handbell musicians, adept at producing skilled performances and educating new ringers at all levels. We educate through concert demonstrations, workshops, masterclasses, and festivals; we enrich our community by collaborating with local musicians, exploring varied artistic offerings in settings both traditional and non-traditional; and we demonstrate a passion for sharing our musical art with all. Ring Out! is a smaller ensemble that enables us to present music in settings that would not accommodate our full set-up.

NOVA with Bob & Bill

With NOVA, we use a looper that enables us to play along with rhythm tracks we have created — the 1930s to the latest contemporary tunes. We offer great, full-sounding instrumental music ideally suited to enhance your guest’s experience — not overwhelm them. We play a variety of styles of music including iconic rock, folk, indie, soul, pop, reggae, blues, chill, zydeco, classic country, and light jazz from American classics, to originals, to tunes from around the world. Bob plays in the spirit and in the styles of guitar masters such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, and Bob Marley to name a few of the most notable.

BYOWB -- Bring Your Own (Water) Bottle

While visiting the market this Saturday, The Worthington Partnership and The Worthington Partnership Green Team invite you to use the new public water fountain and bottle filling station installed on the Southwest Village Green. It even has a designated fountain/bowl for dogs!

Our team is excited to offer this sustainable resource to help reduce the number of plastic water bottles used in Worthington that add to the landfill.

Thank you to the City of Worthington Government for supporting us on this sustainability project and thank you to The Worthington Partnership Green Team for working so hard to raise the funds to make it happen!

Don't forget to "BYOWB" on Saturday. Bottled water will no longer be sold at the market information booth.

Pick Up After Your Pooch

Poop, it happens. Follow Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District ‘s program and P.U.P. (Pick Up Poop) then pop the poop in the LANDFILL side of our downtown waste collection bins.

Because poop is a contaminant when it comes to recycle collection. And could lead to the entire recycling collection being sent to the landfill.

But isn’t it natural? Shouldn’t I leave it to fertilize the soil?

Your pet does not eat a natural local diet. Their waste washes into the storm drains and “Dog waste contains nitrogen and phosphorus, which can deplete oxygen that fish and other water-based life need to survive, as well as encourage the growth of harmful algae.

It is also considered a significant source of pathogens like fecal coliform, a disease-causing bacteria” (


The Worthington Farmers Market is an event of The Worthington Partnership.
