From today until the end of the summer, the town square area of New Albany will feature a weekly Farmers’ Market, every Thursday from 4-7 p.m. It’s a nifty event that gives area farmers and entrepreneurs a chance to display their wares while New Albany residents stroll along and decide whether to indulge in a fresh-baked pie or some buffalo meat.
Today the Farmers’ Market featured jams, sweet corn and fresh produce, baked goods, homemade ethnic food, ice cream, and a slew of other goodies. I went for some honey from Latshaw Apiaries, just down the road in Alexandria, Ohio, and two kinds of cheese from the Kokoborrego Cheese Company in Mt. Gilead, Ohio.
I love having the Farmers’ Market as a local sourcing option. This afternoon we walked there with the dogs, we got some exercise, I bought my goods, and we supported area businesses — all at the same time.
