Farmers Market returns through September at Oakland Nursery
The Dublin Farmers Market is back in action at Oakland Nursery, 4261 W. Dublin Granville Road.
The May to September farmers market that runs every Wednesday from 3-6 p.m. opened May 1 offering up fresh vegetables and fruit, maple syrup, dog food, soap, herbs and many more items from local sources.
This year's Dublin Farmers Market has sprouted a few new things.
"We're trying to do music more consistently," said Market organizer Jaime Moore.
"We're doing a cookbook exchange and working to get specific kids' activities."
The cookbook exchange is new and started at the Worthington farmer's market over the winter, Moore said, and includes the summer Worthington and Bexley markets for more offerings.
"There will be a cookbook exchange every week with the exception of rainy days," Moore said.
"You can bring one you don't like or need and pick up a new one."
Offerings at the market have grown since last year as Moore added six new vendors.
"Kingdom Fish is new," she said. "It's an aquaponics farm. They'll bring tilapia."
Bakery at Restoration Farm and Gluten Free You and Me have been added as well.
It's All Good Pantry will take root at the market with dried herbs, vegetables and other items.
Gemini Creamery will also be on hand selling gluten-free dairy dessert.
"We've added in areas we've previously been weak in," Moore said.
Perennial favorites will return too.
"We have people coming back," Moore said. "Blue Jacket Dairy will be here."
The market accepts EBT cards and anyone who misses a trip to the ATM machine can swipe their card in exchange for $5 tokens.
"It's as good as cash," Moore said of the tokens. "You get change back (from the vendors)."
A list of vendors found at the Dublin Farmers Market and music will be sent out weekly.
