UPTOWN WESTERVILLE FARMERS' MARKET
Home-grown. Home-made. All Ohio.
Market Wednesday opens for business at 3:00 p.m.
3 p.m. is 3 p.m.
Asking will not get you a different answer.
Produce, meat & poultry, egg, dairy, bakery, and cottage food vendors are held to a standard by this market, federal, state, and local laws, codes, and regulations. To participate in the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market, vendors must agree to respect and meet those standards.
When you come to market, when you get out of your car, while you're at market, and before you head out - take a beat and take stock - know where your car, purse, keys, wallet, phone, checkbook, charge cards, sunglasses, pacifiers, valuables, and purchases are at all times. There is a lot going on at a farmers' market and it's just very easy to get distracted.
Our vendors are people who love to talk shop and make sure you get along okay while you're shopping. Got a question? Just ask.
The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is a non-smoking environment. Thanks.
Parking is free on-street, across the street, and just to the east of the market space. There are bike racks in Rotary Park on the SE corner of E. Home and N. State.
The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market is open rain or shine... when it's your basic summer rainfall, but we're not fools... in the event of severe weather (lightning, tornado sirens, mircroburst conditions), the market will suspend or close.
If the market suspends, any vendor with customer pick-ups will stay until 6 p.m.
Consider bringing a cooler or stay-cold bag. Meats and poultry are sold frozen. Eggs, milk, cheese, and other dairy are sold refrigerated. (Or just to keep produce selections cool on the way home.)
All Market Wednesday Vendors accept VISA, MC, Amex, and Discover debit and credit cards.
If you need cash, Uptown Westerville ATMs:
Middlefield Bank, 17 N. State, near W. Main, ATM at the drive-thru behind the bank

Vendor participation in programs such as WIC, and Senior Programs, varies by the vendor. Just ask your favorite vendor what programs they may participate in before you make a purchase.
Franklin County LifeCare Alliance Senior Farmers' Market coupons (fresh produce and honey) are currently accepted at Bird's Haven Farms, Bridgman Farm, and Doran's Family Farm.
Bird's Haven Farms and Doran's Family Farm participate in the WIC Farmers' Market coupon program (unprepared fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs).
Delaware County Senior Farmers' Market coupons can only be accepted in Delaware County at farmers' markets in Delaware, Sunbury, and Powell.
The WARM Fresh Green Program has been retired. Fresh produce is now available on-site at WARM.
Prices as Marked. Just like the grocery store. (As a rule, a farmers' market is not a place to haggle over prices.)
Market Hours... The Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market opens for business at 3 p.m. each Wednesday @ N. State and E. Home Streets (62 N. State) from May through October and closes at 6 p.m.

This market is a safe place.
There are times and places for everything and the Uptown Westerville Farmers’ Market is not a place for causes, campaigns, commercial outreach, or candidates.
No unapproved solicitation of market patrons or vendors permitted.
We want our market patrons to feel they can enter and leave the market unencumbered, be undistracted from their children, and just completely enjoy their trip to the market.
Please note that the market takes place on private property. Sidewalks are public spaces, and with that, we expect common courtesy, common sense, and respect for applicable laws.
Discretion is the better part of valor, and in the end, will win you more friends.
Thank you for being so understanding.
Common courtesy. Common sense. Kindness. Treat people the way you would want to be treated. Relax. (It's a farmers' market!) Browse. Visit. Taste. Shop. Enjoy.
Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter which fork you use. - Emily Post
