Winter Market Returns Nov 14. Check Out Grocery Boss. Volunteer With Us! November Food Celebrations
This Saturday, November 14, our Winter Market returns to The Shops at Worthington Place (7227 N. Hight Street). See our Market Map and Producer Listing below for vendors participating in this week's market. More than 40 local farmers and makers will be there! And while most vendors will be located inside the mall, a few of our larger meat/egg and produce vendors will operate in the parking lot in front of Talbot's.
The Worthington Farmers Market will be open every Saturday from 9am-12pm EXCEPT Saturday, November 28 and Saturday, December 26 when we are closed to celebrate the holidays. We invite you to safely shop fresh and local with us! Our winter season opens in November and extends through the end of April.

Pandemic safety protocol will be in place for our winter market season to provide a healthy, efficient and socially distanced shopping experience for all.

Thank you for your support and cooperation in extending our season and keeping local food accessible.
Open Hours: 9am-12pm*

If you are not a high-risk customer, please wait until after 10am to visit the Market.
10am-12pm We welcome all shoppers.
Please enter the Market only through the designated Market entrances and exits, as noted on our Market map.
In order to ensure plenty of social distancing for our customers, entrance into the Market will be limited. Each guest visiting the Market will be counted as they enter and exit to ensure we are not exceeding our capacity. Please be patient if we have reached our customer capacity and you are asked to wait to enter the Market.
Pre-ordering for pick-up on Saturday is still an option at this location, though instead of driving, you will walk-thru to pick-up your items from the individual vendors from whom you have ordered. You are welcome to pick-up anytime during open market hours.

Celeriac Is Ugly On the Outside But Beautiful Within!
Celeriac, a type of celery with a large edible root, may have the distinction of being the ugliest veggie in the market. The baseball-sized globular root has bumps, brown spots, and plenty of gnarly roots attached. The pale green color isn’t too appetizing either. But veggie looks are deceiving - the inside is tasty and versatile! Celeriac, or celery root, appears to have been domesticated from wild celery thousands of years ago. Ancient Greeks used it for medicinal and religious purposes. It started to become popular as food in 17th Century Europe. It is central to the French dish celerie remoulade which is a slaw with celeriac, other vegetables, and a Dijon mustard-based dressing.
Peeling celeriac reveals a white flesh that tastes like a subtle blend of celery and parsley. It is a good non-starch substitute for potatoes and can be mashed or fried-fried. Celeriac can be eaten raw in salads, as well as steamed, boiled, sautéed, and roasted. It is also ideal for soups and stews.
Celeriac has plenty of health benefits. First, it is very low in calories and high in fiber. And it contains antioxidants like falcarinol, which is thought to have cancer fighting properties. It also a great source of phosphorus, vitamin C, and vitamin K.
Celeriac can be hard to find in the US, but if you shop the Worthington Farmers Market you can pick some up at Franklinton Farms!
