The Farmers Market in Granville, Ohio... the last week Oct. 23 don't miss out, check out these photos!

The 2010 season for Farmers Market in Granville, Ohio is coming to close this Oct, 23rd. Make plans to to scoop up the goodies this Saturday! Buying directly from local growers & vendors is a great way to enjoy the fresh taste of organically grown produce & fruits. The cottage industry bakers, and candy makers have some of the best products I've ever tasted.

Here are just a few things you may find at the market...the winter veggies are coming in and so I had to say so long to the delicious corn & tomatoes from a few weeks ago but don't fret yet, there are many more items to chose from at this diverse Farmer's Market.

Sunny Meadows Flower Farm

sunflowers  organic greens


The organic Asian mix with arugula was out of this world! I made my salad that evening w/ diced apples, red grapes, thinly sliced red peppers, freshly grated Parmesan cheese and my own balsamic vinaigrette, yummm. Look at Greta making those gorgeous hand tied European bouquets as fast as the people were buying them!

Hey Cynthia, I love farmers Markets, such a great variety of foods and crafts to go around.  You have captured wonderful pictures as well, I especially love the fist batch with the women and sunflowers :)

Hi Sharon, these socks are super cozy too! Have fun and check out the goodie at your local Farmer's Market!!!

You got it Tammy, funny..... my dear cousin who is still in GA calls me girlie too! I'll have your room ready :~)

Hi Judy, that salad was good, I'm a vegetarian and I try out all kinds of salad combos! Those caramel with pecans were so rich & creamy but sadly they are all gone.....sigh....

Hey there Rascally Roger, so sorry no wreath yet, maybe it will have to a Christmas wreath....I'm wearing those comfy socks now, it's a bit chilly here tonight. LOL, Cynthia the Great, what did I get myself into w/ that moniker???

Well you are very welcome Richard, I 'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks & Cheers to too :~)

Posted by Cynthia Bartch about 10 years ago

Hi William, That is a compliment I'll take, thanks! Personal, that's me to tee :~D

Hi Laura, she was a joy to watch and I couldn't stop taking her picture! Their website is awesome if you get a chance check it out. I have to watch it though because the breads & sweets are always calling my name. Pssst Cyndee over me & take me home. I always listen!

Posted by Cynthia Bartch about 10 years ago

You don't like that moniker?  You are Cynthia the Great....................Christmas?  I have to wait until Christmas for the wreath post?

Your pictures are just stunning and this is just such compelling post, making anyone in your area wanting to get there.  The last time is sad but it goes out in beauty with this photo journalism you have done. I feel like I am going to come back and visit this post, it isjust so inviting in every way!

Hi Cynthia - What a colorful Farmers Market!  I especially love the sunflowers!

Beautiful post and as always GREAT pictures! We are fortunate to have a couple of great Farmers Markets here too and I try to stop every Saturday for organically grown fruits veggies, herbs and home made cheese, butter, baked goods and other tasty treats!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 10 years ago

Cynthia, I LOVE our local farmers markets and try to go to them as much as possible.  They're just coming back into full swing here in Arizona now that we have tolerable weather.  One thing I've found recently is our locally grown honey.  I have 2 friends who SWEAR that it's really helped their seasonal allergies here and it's on my list of must buys as soon as I can get to a local market.

Great photos, BTW.

LOL Roger, I'm quiet modest by nature but I spurt out the most inane things at times. I quite like the moniker now, very goes with The Queen Wave nicely. As for the wreath........

Why Barbara, you have made my week with your resplendent comment, thanks and ((hug)) for that! I'm going there now to get some delicious scones, why I think I'm developing the Granville Pudge. I'll just make sure I purchase some zucchini and greens to make up for those yummy treats! Yes I'm sad to see it go but there is always the anticipation of June...ahhhhh

Ruh-roh Tammy would that be Glen or Laney??? Heck bring them both ;~D

Chris, you and me both, I never tire looking at those gorgeous sunflowers either, they always make me smile :~)

Oh man Russell, aren't these Farmers Markets the best? We have quite a diverse group here in Granville, one can even buy...drum roll range chickens & some kind of special beef. With you being a foodie I suspected you had your sources to the freshest ingredients Mr. Peach Salsa Winner! I'm so very fortunate to have one right down the street from me!!!

Juli, isn't it grand? My grandparents had a huge farm and that fresh taste is something I'll never forget, I was spoiled from the beginning :~) Glad to read you're weather has let up so everyone can enjoy  the fresh bounty. I found a local honey here too, they will even sell it year round in the local grocery store. It's in my morning tea as I write this. Hey if it's working for your friends keep that honey flowing baby, Woo-Hoo!

Posted by Cynthia Bartch about 10 years ago

Hey there!  Looks like you are finding lots to do in your new area.  There's nothing quite like fall.  As always, I love your photos.

Cynthia, Farmers Markets are a great way to support the local community and "farm fresh" is so appealing. I used to go to the farmers market in Woodstock Illinois to buy veggies and even Bison meat (tenderloin/fillets) from a local grower...there was definitely a difference in taste.  You continue to paint a wonderful picture of Granville.

Cyndee ~ your photos at the Farmers Market are such fun!  I love to visit my local market and sometimes the people-watching is the best part :-)

Love our local farmers markets.....and we are lucky here in California since they are year round weather permitting.  Yours looks very picturesque!! 

Posted by Kathy Burke, S.F. East Bay Home Staging (Sensational Home Staging~~Danville, CA) about 10 years ago

Good Morning my GA friend, yes there is lots to do here and I'm only in the discovery stages of my new hometown. Thanks for your kind words on the photos Patsy, much appreciated!

Morning Nick, this town is quite picturesque indeed. I don't think there was Bison carcass at this Farmers market but I could be wrong....I'm a vegetarian but I do cook carcass for my husband, and friends. They even come back for seconds :~) The freshness of the foods at these markets can't be beat!

Hey Maureen, hope your Sunday is going well! Oh yes the people & dog watching is so much fun. So glad you enjoyed the photos, thanks :~D

Hi Kathy, Glad to read so many are supporting the local growers!!! Now I'm jealous of you Kathy, a year round market would be my dream. Granville is an older Historical town and very picturesque to say the least.

Cynthia  I agree with William - you are in the entire post - I think you are now an official Granvillian citizen or is it Granvillite?

Cynthia your photos are so much fun, I almost feel like I got to go to the Farmer's Market also! The sunflowers are just beautiful and my feet are jealous of your socks!

Hey I came backto give you a suggestion. I do not know if you are on Twitter and though I have been slow to see the relevance it's finally dawned on me that it's been a great way to connect with folks who have similar interests here in Austin, Foodies, Music, Film, Running etc. and I've actually connected with a number of local people at our Farmers Market. Might be a cool way for you to learn more about your new home!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 10 years ago

Gee Karen, I don't know the answer to that! Off the Mayors' office I go ;)

Hey Mary, weren't those sunflowers awesome? I could have snapped Gretta's picture all day, the website and their story are worth checking out. Sorry I wan;t trying to taunt you my cozy sock, lol!!!

Hey Russell, I welcome all suggestions...I do not tweet nor can I whistle! But Ted and I have been getting to know the locals & owner's of the pubs & restaurants and we chat them up rather frequently. It's a small town population 3,200 but when college students are in session is it rises to 5,100. Denison University is smack in the middle of downtown.

That is greatl how you were able to connect w/ other foodies & film buffs in your area through Twitter. I appreciate you coming back to help out this gal :~)

Posted by Cynthia Bartch about 10 years ago

Once again you have outdone yourself in the photo department....making us all feel like we are there!!!!  Beautiful.

Love the salad, the greens looked de-lish!!!  CVozy socks, fuzzy dogs and gorgeous flowers.  Hope we get to do some of these awesome things when Sharon and I come to visit.    I have a friend in Avon Lake who what to come join us one day for lunch during the visit. 

Keep these wonderful posts coming - I so enjoy them....although they don't your place, at least I feel closer to you - LOL.

The candy looks yummy! And I love that people are in sweatshirts and sweaters. Definitely the type of weather I love. We have had a few sweatshirt days, but it doesnt last long.

Posted by John Cannata, Texas Home Mortgage - Purchase or Refinance (214-728-0449 about 10 years ago

Peggy a/k/a Dot, The Farmer's Market doesn't start up again till June I was sad to see it go :( You would have loved the flowers.... the colors so vibrant and the cutest gal was making those bouquets so fast.

I hope you aren't working too hard but I know better. So glad you can keep tabs on me through these blog posts....


John, let me tell you that candy was very yummy!!! The weather keeps changing back and forth from sweater weather to t-shirt weather but I'm sure it won't last long......I'm waiting snow!
