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.
