Mission to Athens: Farmers Market and more
Posted by cmh gourmand on July 16, 2009
A while back, I wrote that I was working on an Athens food tour and needed to get my rear in gear. It happened. Thanks to hard work and great leads from Kate Lainhart at Greener Grocer, some very patient and helpful folks in the greater Athens area, some fast footwork by Bear and Colleen at Slow Food and divine intervention in the weather arena. Here is the story from Bethia (Hungry Woolf) on the Slow Food Columbus blog – Slow Food Athens Weekend Tour June 2009
As part of my reconnaissance to put the tour together, I made my first trip to the Athens Farmers Market. The Market is open all year on Saturdays and Wednesdays from April to December. Hours are 10 AM to 1 PM.
We have a great selection of farmers markets in the Columbus Metropolitan area. There are some up and coming markets in Granville and Lancaster. However, the Athens Farmer’s Market has a history, depth of vendors and an energy that makes it unique and worth the road trip to Athens. Here the commentary ends and the photos begin. This also marks the premiere of the Athens page for this blog. Athens has become my second Ohio home and the world of food there is so amazing it deserves a page to itself.
