Spring is a time for budding flowers, rain storms, the resurgence of warm weather and baseball's opening day. But more and more, it's also becoming synonymous with the beginning of a different season: farmers market season.
The Bexley Farmers' Market will make its yearly debut May 16 on Main Street across from Capital University and will continue through October.
From 4 to 7 p.m. Thursdays, shoppers can browse goods from 17 different vendors. They offer a range of items including artisan bread, flowers, organic meats, fruits, heirloom vegetables, herbs, pure honey, gourmet jams and handmade pies, cupcakes and cookies.
Vendors include the Dublin-based catering and design company Bleu and Fig, jam and biscotti maker Kyla Touris' Sweet Thing Gourmet, and Sarabee, a Circleville honey farm.
Musicians also will be featured.
Before heading to the market, shoppers can visit the website bexleyfarmersmarket.com to find out which fruits and vegetables are in season and the recipes that complement them.
Customers also can follow the market blog thebexleyfamersmaret.blogspot.com during the season to stay updated on market news and events.
