This past Saturday (August 18-07) I visited the farmers market in downtown Worthington Ohio.
This quaint town was founded in the1800's and has New England roots which is reflected in the towns colonial architecture. The farmer's market is held on the sidewalk in front of all the towns' shops.
It was a beautiful day in the 70's with a nice breeze. I love to browse all the produce that the vendors have to offer. August is my favorite food month; there is nothing better to eat than fresh tomatoes just picked from the vine and the corn on the cob is the sweetest it will ever be.
As I walked thru the market I was delighted to see many beautiful Ohio grown vegetables and fruits. There was also a good selection of meats, eggs, and jellies to purchase. Oh so beautiful were the cut flowers and perennials that could be planted in your garden. I was surprised to see a large pumpkin at one of the vendor's vegetable stand. The conversation I had with the vendor was that the pumpkin patch has developed early this year and could be due to our hot summer with the rain that came just at the right time.Yes fall will be here before we know it. I am sure if I stop back at the farmers market I will have plenty of fall fair and pumpkins to choose from.
Our doggie friends were even thought of at the market; I purchased a gourmet treat for a friend's dog that is very special to me.
The Farmers market is held every Saturday in downtown Worthington, May thru October, 9:00 a.m. to noon. The streets are packed with shoppers. If you live in the Worthington area or are just visiting you must stop at the farmers market on a Saturday morning; you will not be disappointed.
