Two years ago, the Worthington Farmers Market moved from multi-use City of Worthington facility The Griswold Center to The Shops at Worthington Place, a large remodeled mall. The additional space provided the opportunity to accommodate far more vendors. Each year, during both the indoor and outdoor seasons, market manager Jaime Moore seeks to add innovative new flavors and products from up-and-coming vendors throughout Central Ohio.
The following are some of the newest additions to the market, along with their products: Black Radish Creamery produces small-batch jams; Effervescence offers fermented vinegars; Secret Garden Bakery sells all-natural vegetable muffins; Blue Owl Garden Emporium cultivates culinary herbs, herbal seasoning blends and teas.
Moore acknowledges that consumers want to know more about the food they eat. “They want to know who grew it, where they grew it, when it was picked, what the variety is, how to cook it, the proper way to store it – they want to ask questions,” she says.
The indoor market is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., through April 25, 2015. Exceptions are November 29 and December 27, when the market will close due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
