Worthington Farmers Market: September 17th

Farmers seeing Increased Demand for Local Produce


"Around the country, however, Americans haven't had to look hard to find a farmer this year; 4,900 farmer's markets opened, an increase from 4,685 last year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said. In the most areas, shoppers can choose between several stands within a half-hour's drive in most directions from the city.

Those trips are short compared to the thousands of miles that fruit, vegetables and other food might travel from California, South America or New Zealand before reaching stores.."

Worthington Farmers Market: September 3rd

What is Midwestern Cuisine?


"What would traditional Midwestern cuisine look like if it were elevated to restaurant fare?

I had started to wonder about this question after visiting restaurants in other states and abroad that were exploring the cuisines of their own regions. I’ve always thought that the local food movement, while welcome, was only scratching the surface of what it meant to be local, and that a different theme—indigenous food, for lack of a better term: food with a historic connection to a region and its people—would resonate to a much greater degree with an American audience."

Check out the rest of this article to learn more about traditional Midwest food!

Ohio State Takes On Food Security


"The problem is persistent. And it’s everywhere. Even though its impossibly large numbers are void of meaning for many: Fifty million Americans don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In Ohio, 2 million people are hungry. And 21 percent of children here in Franklin County are food insecure. It’s a wall of hard truth, but there are windows. Over the next decade, Ohio State will invest nearly $125 million in food security, combatting this critical challenge from all disciplinary fronts as an integral element of President Michael V. Drake’s 2020 Vision for the university. 

The goal is big because the shroud of hunger is worn in every community, especially by the most vulnerable. The goal is big because Ohio State, with its capacity to confront complex global challenges, can elevate the quality of life through a unique marketplace of ideas. As a large, influential land-grant university, it’s our mission."

Our Event: Yoga on the Green

Do good for your mind, body and being by enjoying the benefits of yoga, while visiting the Worthington Farmers Market!

To Native Cold Pressed co-owners, Nicole Salvo and Erin Thacker, yoga and raw juice exemplify the two pillars of balanced living. Join Erin and Nicole for a 1-hour vinyasa flow (all levels) on the Southwest village green, starting at 8:00 am on May 28, June 25, July 30, August 27, September 24 and October 29.

Bring your own mat or enjoy yoga on the grass. And after your practice, visit the Native Cold Pressed tent (in the Graeter's parking lot every week) for a wide selection of raw juice. Their juice is made from only fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices...never diluted and nothing is ever added. It's 100% organic, and 100% good for you!

Classes are free and open to everyone, regardless of ability. For those who would like to make a donation of any amount, please visit the market information tent on the northeast corner of New England and High.

In the event of rain, yoga will be cancelled.
