Dublin residents will have to look outside of Historic Dublin for fresh farm produce this year.

Dublin residents will have to look outside of Historic Dublin for fresh farm produce this year.

The Dublin Farmers Market will open May 2 for its fourth year in a new location at Oakland Nursery, 4261 W. Dublin Granville Road.

Market organizer Jaime Moore said parking was often a complaint from customers who shopped at the previous location in the parking lot of Dublin Community Church, 81 W. Bridge St.

"More or less we wanted to look for an opportunity a little bit less strenuous with traffic," Moore said, noting the new location will have more parking for customers.

"Parking was a little limited in the (historic) district," she said. "Parking was something we would hear enough, we thought we should do something about it."

So the market will move about a mile east to Oakland Nursery.

"They have been kind enough to host us," Moore said. "We're really excited about the move."

Although the location will be different, Moore said favored vendors will return.

"We're bringing back all the favorites: Rhoads Farms, SaraBee Pure Honey (and) Hirsch Farms," she said.

New vendors will also be offering products at the farmers market, including a dog food producer.

"We added something called the Brown and Blonde Bakery," Moore said.

"They have gluten free baking mixes," she said.

"We'll have Pies by the Pie Man. The pie man is known for being an excellent pie maker. He'll have seasonal fruit pies.

"Maple Farm is coming back," Moore said.

"We've got Weed Knob Acres and Dan the Baker is back.

"We'll have two bread producers that have great, classic-style breads that people know and love."

Children's activities could return. Moore said planning is still in the works.

"We've spent a lot of focus on being in a new area," she said. "We're trying to get a feel for the layout and the land."

The Dublin Farmers Market will run from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday from May to September. The market will not be open on Independence Day, July 4.

"We're excited about our fourth year," Moore said.

"We hope customers are excited too. We hope the new location reinvigorates traffic and gets people excited again and gets them to the market."
