From the Worthington Farmers Market

Winter Farmers Market GraphicThe Worthington Farmers Market will be open, as an essential source for groceries, this Saturday, November 21 from 9 am-12 pm at The Shops at Worthington Place. The health and safety of our customers, our producers, our volunteers, and our staff remain our highest priority. We are committed to our pandemic safety protocols, issued by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, to continue to provide a direct source for local food. Our requirements are enforced through weekly inspections by the City of Columbus Public Health. Masks are required for all guests visiting the Worthington Farmers Market. Capacity into the Market is limited to ensure proper social distancing. And, space between producer stalls has increased to allow for wider aisles and additional space for customers waiting to make their purchases. Our pandemic safety protocol can be found here.

Customers can access the Worthington Farmers Market in a variety of ways. Please visit our website to learn more about our layout, pre-orders, and delivery options. As we do every year, the Worthington Farmers Market will be closed next Saturday after Thanksgiving, on Saturday, November 28. We will be back to serve you on Saturday, December 5. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, keep an eye on the Worthington Farmers Market website for any updates or changes to operations.
