|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, repeating until April 16, 2022 12:00 am

Starting the first Saturday of December, Common Greens will host a weekly indoor winter farmers’ market on the plaza level of the Ohio History Center. Customers can expect to find a marketplace filled with Ohio-grown produce, meats, dairy, eggs, baked goods and a variety of artisanal food products.

As a bonus, guests to the Ohio History Center will be asked to “pay what you want” for museum admission during market hours, which means everyone will be able to access their educational resources regardless of income. “We’re excited to provide a unique backdrop and experience for this winter market,” said Jen Cassidy, Director of Ohio History Center and Ohio Village. “In addition to locally-grown foods and artisan goods, our team is eager to help guests take home a bit of Ohio’s rich natural and cultural history,” she added.

While market offerings change with the season, farmers will still have winter squash, potatoes, root vegetables, onions and fresh greens over the winter months. Customers will be able to shop onsite and/or pre order market items through a centralized e-commerce platform. The online market store will be open on Tuesdays 10 am through Thursdays 5 pm.

The market’s farmers and food producers are excited for the extended season. “The availability of winter markets means I can keep areas of the farm fertile and productive, which translates into less loss of biodiversity in the soil systems,” said Dan Woods, owner of 9N Farm in Greenfield. “It also means a steadier income flow throughout the year instead of having to plan for part-time work off the farm over the winter,” he continued.

The winter market opens Saturday, December 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. indoors at Ohio History Center, 800 E. 17th Ave., Columbus, Ohio, 43211, and will run through April 16th. Closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
