Three Great Columbus Winter Farmers Markets

Who says you can't eat fresh and local when there's snow on the ground?

Columbus WinterFarmers Market

Whetstone Community Center

10 a.m. to 1 p.m. second and forth Saturdays through March 21

Clintonville's grassroots winter market flies a little under the radar, but it's worth the trip for dips and dressings from Cathy's Tasty Treats, organic-certified microgreens from Swainway Urban Farm and natural body products from Boline Apothecary.

The Market at 400

400 West Rich Street

11 a.m. to 2 p.m. second and forth Saturdays

Look for squash and root veggies from a rotating lineup of winter producers like Mid-Ohio Foodbank's Urban Farms and Shady Grove Farms. Don't forget to grab some sweets, too, like a goat's milk chocolate bar from fincaChocolate or a whole pie from Nova Terra Farm.

Worthington Farmers Market

The Shops at Worthington Place

9 a.m. to noon Saturdays through April

Winter weather does little to slow down the Worthington Farmers Market, which moves from High Street into The Shops at Worthington Place through spring. Among its dozens of vendors, don't miss alt meats from Ohio Bison Farm and cheese curds from Blue Jacket Dairy.
