Dublin Farmers' Market: June 29th

Shopping Tips for the Market


"Shopping at farmers markets is the easiest way to eat locally. You know where the food comes from: After all, the grower is right there and you can ask them. More than one shopper, however, has come home with bags of produce that went uneaten. A bit of planning can keep weekly shopping for produce at a farmers market fun and make cooking a snap all week long."

 "Farmers’ markets are one of the oldest forms of direct marketing by farmers. From the traditional “mercados” in the Peruvian Andes to the unique street markets in Asia, growers all over the world gather weekly to sell their produce directly to the public. In the last decade they have become a favorite marketing method for many farmers throughout the United States, and a weekly ritual for many shoppers."

Dublin Farmers' Market: June 15th

Local-Food Movement Matures


"Jon Glyn, farmers' market program manager at Farm to City, said the business has been maturing.

"I feel like we're hitting the second wave of the farmers' market movement," he said.

"For 10 or 15 years, we've had a lot of interest in farmers' markets. Every neighborhood wanted their own, and even old-school farmers that gave up on farmers' markets in the '80s and '90s are now coming back. Some of our markets are on their 10th year, and they've actually inspired this new generation of young people who are getting into farming. But they're having trouble finding spots at farmers' markets that already have established vendors, and everyone is fighting for the same dollars."

Creating a farmers' market is a science, Glyn said."

Dublin Farmers' Market: June 8th

Local Honey is the Bee's Knees


The medicinal benefits of honey have been recognized for ages. Here are a few in case you're still unsure.

ALLERGIES A tablespoon of local honey each day can relieve the symptoms of pollen related allergies. How? Bees are collecting nectar from the very plants that are making you sneeze and sniffle, and so with that honey you can ingest small amounts of the very allergen that is troubling you.

COUGHS A 2007 study from Penn State College of Medicine that involved 139 children, found that buckwheat honey outperformed the cough suppressant, dextromethorphan (DM), in calming nighttime coughs in children and improving their sleep.

VITAMINS Honey contains vitamins and minerals, including niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.

FUEL Honey makes an excellent source of all-natural energy that is superior to other conventional sources. Grab a honey stick for a quick pick-me-up during endurance events.

Dublin Farmers' Market: June 1st

Double Your Dollars at the Dublin Farmers' Market 

With support of the City of Columbus, the Franklin County Commissioner, Wholesome Wave, and the Puffin Foundation, Veggie SNAPS provides individuals enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with a monetary incentive to purchase produce at the Dublin Farmers' Market.

Veggie SNAPS has benefits to shoppers and growers alike. They allow more customers the opportunity to purchase the healthy, locally-grown ingredients that had previously been cost-prohibitive. Additionally, increased sales to new customers also make both growers and farmers’ markets more economically viable.

"We're really proud of it. It's a lot of work, but we are glad when people are happy and come back." 

Jennifer Picklesimon, We're All Connected

Jammin' in the Kitchen

"Mother and daughter team Bev and Jennifer Picklesimon began making homemade jams for family members.
Then, some of their co-workers at Ashland in Dublin had tried some of their homemade creations and began buying them so, "We thought why not sell at the farmers market," Jennifer Picklesimon said.
