Veggie Spy & Versatile Vegan

Oyster Mushrooms Rule!

The Market is fortunate to have several mushroom growers, and they can introduce you to types beyond the standard button, portobello, and shiitake varieties. Oyster mushrooms are gaining in popularity, and you should give them a look!

Oyster mushrooms get their name from their fan-shaped caps, and they typically grow on logs or dying trees. They overlap with one another, forming interesting shelf-like structures. They come in many colors including yellow, blue, and pink. Humans have been foraging and eating oyster mushrooms for thousands of years.

Oyster mushrooms have a subtle, savory flavor, sometimes with a touch of anise. Their velvety texture is reminiscent of seafood, and they also work well as a meat substitute. Popular varieties include King and Pearl, both available at the Market. Oyster mushrooms are low in calories and high in antioxidants, Vitamin D, and magnesium.

The Versatile Vegan like to make use of King oyster’s meaty texture in these King Oyster Mushroom Scallops. It calls for spinach, which is available at the Market. Another winner is this Pearl Oyster Mushroom Noodle Salad. And any oyster variety works in this delicious Oyster Mushroom Vegan Milanese!

You can get several types of oyster mushrooms at Mayapple Farms and Marion Mushrooms. Also, Blue Owl has oyster mushroom logs so you can grow your own!

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.
