A New Farmer’s Market: Orrville, Ohio

September 30th, 2008

For the past 2 Thursdays I have visited the Orrville Farmer’s Market in Orrville, Ohio, I just happened to be in the area visiting my mom. It’s a small market, winding down for the season, but there’s still a treasure of stuff there. I found things that the Carrollton Farmer’s Market doesn’t have. It seems like a lot of the booths were offering specialty veggies like blue & cranberry potatoes, mini cabbages, heirloom garlic, and arugula.

I filled my bags will all kinds of goodies including: grass fed beef steaks, zucchini, a few pints of cherry tomatoes, garlic, apples (eating & cooking), grapes, decorative squash, beets, turnips, sweet potatoes, baby cabbage, and a few delicious baked goods (granola, peach gingerbread, peanut butter cookies). Too bad last week was the last market for the year (I’m glad the Carrollton one goes through Nov) or I’d head back over to buy some more goodies, especially some grapes.

Anyone else have a farmer’s market they love?

    I like the 2nd Street Public Market near us in Dayton.
