Dublin Farmers' Market: September 3rd

“A farm includes the passion of the farmer's heart, the interest of the farm's customers, the biological activity in the soil, the pleasantness of the air about the farm -- it's everything touching, emanating from, and supplying that piece of landscape. A farm is virtually a living organism.” 

― Joel Salatin, Everything I Want to Do is Illegal: War Stories from the Local Food Front

Meet Your Farmer, Know Your Food


Hopefully the hype of buying local never dies, only thrives! Local farmers and food artisans need your help. The words "Buy Local" are seen in store fronts, advertised by brands, and seen in colorfully signed chalk paints at local farmers markets. But what do these words truly mean to you and what might they mean to someone else? Like all meanings, personal interpretations are not always equivalent. Sure, "buying local" may mean a slight increase in price when compared to a grocery store. Sure, "buying local" may mean that convenience is not the highest priority. "Buying local" is an experience, especially at a local farmers market. A farmers market is made up of a community of hardworking believers. Farmers and food artisans who believe in their products, market managers who take on the pressures of producing a successful market, volunteers who take a hours out of their busy schedules to do nothing but support the cause, and last, but the most coveted, are the customers who buy. Without all of the pieces a farmers market would not exist. The importance of "buying local" can be seen when you walk up to a stand and look over each item on the table that in which the farmer or artisan took time to grow, harvest, bake, and package. When you hand the vendor your dollar and see the smile on their faces, it's a genuine smile of thanks and a smile of sheer gratitude for recognizing how much time, effort, and stress that goes into their product. 

Farmers and food artisans who attend markets put their heart and soul into their work. They want to share the local experience with you, the customer. "Buying local" means so much more when you think about the inputs and the outputs. It is for a good cause. Support local farmers and food artisans by "buying local".

There are several other reasons as to why we, as consumers, should buy local. TIME Magazine presents an article that shares just these ideas! Read the article, "Buying Local:  How It Boosts the Economy", by Judith D. Schwartz. Read a little, learn a lot! 

Here's a challenge for you to bring to market this week! Ask a farmer or food artisan what buying local means to them! Then come to the red information booth, share your experience, and receive a small gift of thanks from us, the Dublin Farmers' Market!

Dublin Farmers' Market: August 13th

“Farming is a profession of hope”
― Brian Brett

"Ohio's Growing Cheese Culture" is Taking Place in Dublin!

"Across the state, small-batch cheese makers are crafting cow, sheep and goat cheese that’s turning the heads of local chefs and judges in national competitions. Any way you slice it, Ohio’s artisanal cheese market is on the rise," according to Crave Magazine, a local, Columbus dining magazine.


Blue Jacket Dairy's feta cheese pairs great with beer, specifically a wheat beer because of the cheese's mild taste and texture. Also, the dairy's sheep milk cheese, Bokengehalas, pairs wonderfully with a lighter cabernet sauvignon. Blue Jacket Dairy offers a variety of cheeses in several tastes and textures.
