Bexley Farmers' Market: September 15th

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.."

Bexley Farmers' Market: September 1st

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."

Bexley Farmers' Market: August 25th

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."

Bexley Farmers' Market: July 28th

What are you getting at the Market?


"Faster than you can say “kale salad” it seems like yet another farmers market pops up. In fact, there are currently more than 8,600 farmers markets registered in the USDA’s Farmers Market Directory. It’s easy to understand why they’re popular—fresh, local produce, plus a chance to meet the farmers who grow your food, all wrapped up in a fun, festive atmosphere. But you may also be a bit confused by what’s on offer at the market. What does all the hype about local really mean? Is it organic? And should you care?"

Food Waste: The Ugly Truth


"Consumers waste plenty of food after the point of purchase, and we can change our habits to curb that — by planning our grocery trips better; by ignoring “best by” dates, which indicate nothing about the safety of the food; by saving those overripe bananas for banana bread. But we can help cut waste upstream as well by embracing broader aesthetic standards. Choose the odd tomatoes and the gnarly parsnips. Buy the undersized beets and the broken almonds. Tell our grocers and our farmers that we’d rather have a slightly dented butternut squash than a hot, dry planet. Support businesses that help get the less-beautiful produce out of fields and onto consumers’ tables. (One French grocer, Intermarché, began buying “ugly” produce in 2014 and selling it at slightly reduced prices at several locations; the success prompted the company to expand the initiative to all of its stores.) We can stop our valuable food — every pound of which represents a sizable investment of energy, water, labor and money — from leaving the system without fulfilling is purpose."

Urban Agriculture and Farmers Markets


"Urban farming has many benefits. By growing food locally and giving under served urban neighborhoods access to fresh produce, jobs are created, local economies are strengthened by circulating dollars within the community, the harmful effects of food deserts are reduced, and consumers become engaged in learning how food is grown."

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."

Lets Go to the Market!


 "Farmers’ markets are one of the oldest forms of direct marketing by farmers.

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."

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."

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.

Need honey? Visit SaraBee Pure Honey every 
Thursday at the Bexley 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.

Bexley Farmers' Market: May 26th


And the winner is... 


Congratulations, Jan Kanas! Jan is the lucky winner of a bottle of the famous Bexley Maple Syrup.




















Is it all in a label? 


Labels are...confusing? Ambiguous? Misleading? Helpful? The answer depends on how much you know!

In an effort to help, National Geographic recently posted "An Eater's Guide to Food Labels."

Natural
Natural is not regulated or defined by the FDA, so the term can be applied freely to most processed foods or drinks. Meat, poultry, or eggs labeled “natural,” on the other hand, have to be natural.

Non-GMO or GE-free
If you care about whether your food contains genetically engineered ingredients, look to third-party certifications such as the Non-GMO project, buy USDA-certified “Organic,” or buy your groceries in Vermont starting this summer.

Certified organic 
With a few exceptions, the agriculture department’s organic label means what it says.

Cage-free, free range, or free-roaming chickens/eggs
Look for the organic label, or GET TO KNOW a local egg farmer from your FARMERS MARKET.

Farm fresh or farm-to-fork 
If you want “farm fresh” food, know your farmers market vendors. If someone is selling you pineapple in Maine in February and calling it farm fresh, ask questions.

Thank you!

What an amazing opening day! A HUGE thank you to Mother Nature for providing a beautiful day, to the City of Bexley for their help in making this move a smooth one, and to each of you for your continued support of the Bexley Farmers' Market!


Tell us what you think! 


And now it's time for a survey. This survey is for anyone in central Ohio who buys and eats vegetables, regardless of where you shop. If you buy veggies at the grocery or at the farmers market or anywhere in between, we want to hear from you! Please consider donating ten minutes of your time to share more about you.

Here’s how you can help :
This market research is being conducted by Great River Organics, a farmer-owned cooperative here in Central Ohio. This is Phase II of a market research study funded by a Local Food Promotion Program grant from the USDA.

We'll see you next Thursday at 4:00 PM!

Bexley Farmers' Market: OPENING DAY!

Bexley Farmers' Market Moves to Dawson this Thursday, May 19th!



First Market Day is May 19th
Every Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00 pm through October


With this move, the Bexley Farmers' Market will be more accessible and within walking distance for many more residents, and will provide a better experience for visitors and vendors alike. Expect your favorite vendors to return, such as Dan the Baker, Hirsch Fruit Farm, and Bexley residents, Sweet Thing Gourmet, among others! Enjoy fresh-from-farm produce and meat, jams and jellies, bread and much more, along with live music from David Austin Sky, this Thursday, May 19 and continuing on Thursday nights until the end of October.

A note about the new location: the Farmers' Market is relocating to the block of Dawson between Main and Sherwood. During Farmers' Market hours, the block will be closed off, and users of the Market will be able to enjoy a more central location with better tree shade and a more linear layout. Users of the Market are encouraged to bike or walk to market when able, but when driving we ask that users park north of Main Street to keep congestion on Main to a minimum. Parking within one block of the market offers a 5x increase in market parking from the previous location, so there should be plenty of parking for market goers!

And the rumors about a bottle of the famous Bexley Maple Syrup from Mayor Kessler being raffled off at the first market? Yep, they're true!

We want your feedback!

Together with the City, the Bexley Farmers' Market is considering relocating the market from its current location at Bexley Gateway South parking lot to Dawson Avenue between Main Street and Sherwood Road. The 2016 Farmers’ Market will be held each Thursday, beginning May 19th, from
4:00–7:00 p.m. through October.

There are several reasons why we hope this will be a beneficial change. The Market will become more accessible and within walking distance for many more residents, and will provide a better experience for visitors and vendors alike.

A meeting for our friends and supporters will be held at City Hall on March 30, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss these proposed changes. We hope you'll join us!

If you have any questions or concerns, please join us at this meeting, or call William T. Dorman, Public Service Director at (614) 559-4220 to discuss.

As always, thank you for your support of the Bexley Farmers' Market!
