Welcome Farmer’s Market season
I love this time of year — ’tis the season for outdoor markets and they abound in Delaware County — so many opportunities, so little time. My goal this year is to make it to all of the markets below at least a few times each before it’s all over (which is much too quickly by my way of thinking).
The Original Delaware Farmers’ Market: starts Saturday, May 19, and runs from 9 a.m. to noon every Saturday at the Delaware County Fairgrounds. They collect and recycle used containers for produce (like berry baskets, grape tomato cartons, etc…) For more information contact Dolly Wysocki at 740–747-2296.
Main Street Delaware Farmers’ Market: starts May 26 and runs from 3 to 6 p.m. every Wednesday and from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays along North Sandusky Street in downtown Delaware. For more information, please call 740–362-6050.

Westerville also has a Saturday Uptown Market featuring arts, crafts, produce and more from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday starting June 4 in the same spot.
Enjoy the outdoor market season! Don’t forget to stop in at the Delaware County Community Market when you are out and about where you will find some of your favorite farmer’s market vendors and lunch. They are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
