From Bexley to Westerville, here's where to find the season's farmers markets.

Central Ohio’s 2020 farmers market season is in full bloom with new Covid-19-related regulations. This handy guide outlines when and where you can find some of our region’s best produce and artisanal products. From socially distanced markets and online preordering to drive-thru stalls and face mask requirements, these local vendors have made changes to keep you and others safe while you shop. (Please note that holidays and new pandemic-related developments may affect the schedule.) Before you go, be sure to check the market’s website (linked to each market’s name below) for new rules and regulations. Know of a farmers market that we missed? Email eedwards@columbusmonthly.com.
