🍎Worthington Farmer’s Market- Winter Season Opener

Saturday, 9 am-12 pm

Celebrate the holidays #inWorthington! Make the season merry & bright with our winter market opener on Saturday, November 6th in the heart of Old Worthington! That’s right, we’ll be remaining in our current outdoor location, along High street, just south of 161. 

You’ll find our weekly list of participating producers and more details about the Market on our website: https://www.worthingtonfarmersmarket.com/meet-our-vendors


(as of September 16, 2021)

Effective September 16, 2021, the City of Worthington requires facial coverings in all publicly accessible *indoor* locations. Please plan accordingly if your trip to Saturday’s Worthington Farmers Market (hosted outdoors through December 18) includes a visit inside of our Old Worthington restaurants and shops.

Space between vendor booths has increased to ensure maximum aisle width.

Form lines in empty spaces next to booths to allow other pedestrians to pass and keep traffic flowing in the main aisles and sidewalks.

Sanitize your hands often. Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the Market space.

Only touch the products that you intend to buy. Or, allow the farmer or food maker to select your products for you.

Pre-ordering for pick-up on Saturday is encouraged to expedite your trip to the Market and to ensure availability of popular items. Place your orders with your favorite producers, then, visit those producer stalls on Saturday morning to pick-up your items from the vendors from whom you have ordered.

And, remember, if you have a fever or if you are not feeling well, please stay home.

Thank you for your continued support of local food and small businesses!
