There are many perks of living in Ohio, but year-round alfresco markets are certainly not one of them. But, with negative temps disappearing from the forecast and sunshine icons returning, outdoor bazaar season is really ramping up.
Here are four markets happening this weekend were you can stock up on produce, fresh flowers, accessories, baked goods, and so much more!
Clintonville Farmers’ Market | 3519 N High St, Columbus
Saturdays, April 27-Nov 16, 9am to noon
Back for its 17th year, Clintonville Farmers’ Market is back and better than ever this weekend. With the market being producer-only, rest assured that all your purchases will be patronizing the stall farmers and/or cottage food producers. The mission of the community-based market is to support excellent growers and producers while nurturing community appreciation of wholesome local foods in a lively neighborhood setting.
The Sunlight Market | Gay Street
Apr 22, May 20, Jun 24, Jul 22, Aug 19, Sep 16 and Oct 7
