My wife and I stopped by this market and quite frankly was not impressed. Unless you like lots of cookies and crafts. We found it to be mainly store fronts selling their wares. upon speaking with several of the booths and asking about their products they didn't know much about their products and one booth tried to tell us they grew the pistachio nuts -last time I checked pistachios didn't grow in Ohio. A few other booths we stopped at had items from other countries, and in checking out a few on line after talking with them and getting a business card it appears they just buy their products and do not make or grow them. My wife who loves farmers markets couldn't wait to leave. I would not recommend this market unless you have a sweet tooth and like lots of artsie crafty things. I highly doubt we will attend again.

At the New Albany Farmers Market, we strive to create a welcoming and community oriented atmosphere. The merchants who are at the market are producers of all the products they sell. We have local honey, maple syrup, produce, bakery items, jams, cheese, ice cream, soup mixes, coffee, pies, meat, lamb wool, and fudge. All of these products are made by our merchants. For the winter market, we added two merchants (a local art gallery and a group that re-purposes items into art) because we thought it would add a nice diversity to our market for this time of year. The pistachios are not grown in Ohio, but in California; however, the owner of the farm is a local resident. Again, it adds some nice diversity to a winter market. We hope you will try us again!
