We can choose where to spend our food dollars to make a difference in our local economy. Even a small shift in our choices makes a difference for the small farmers, artisans and small businesses that work to bring us some of the freshest food in Ohio.
There is no fresher culinary delight than food from a farmers’ market. Where else can you find produce harvested hours before sale or artisanal meats, cheeses and preserves raised and prepared with transparency. Find out why the local food movement has grown so popular. See our list of Farmers’ Markets by Day of the Week. See a longer list of farmers’ markets at Columbus Underground.
