Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community Engagement

We offer programming throughout the year, including our annual Halloween Family Funday, where we serve 500 adults and children by inviting the community to visit the market and providing free activities for children in a safe environment. We also offer educational programs at all of our festivals free of charge. For example, at our annual Farmer's Festival, where we serve almost 1,000 individuals, we offer free canning workshops and cooking demonstrations. We also offer similar programs at the Ohio Wine Festival, where we serve nearly 5,000 individuals.

The market provides support to small startup businesses, farmers, and artisans by providing an accessible environment with highly subsidized rents and fees to make starting a local business. We are the longest running farmer's market in central Ohio. We have a host of merchants, including dining and prepared foods; produce and flowers; fresh meat and fish; bakery and specialty; cookware and gifts; and a pop-up merchant. We are open seven days a week.

We frequently support our merchants' efforts in offering classes to the general public to learn different skills, ranging from baking to butchering techniques. While the Market does not organize these classes, we support them with marketing and space within our facility. Each class is offered to the general public at a different cost. Typically, groups are limited to 15-20 individuals per class, depending on course requirements and available space. Our merchant classes take place seasonally throughout the year.

Age groups

We have our gala host committee, which is made up of young professionals throughout central Ohio that act as advocates for the market to build awareness for the market among the younger generation of consumers. The committee consists of professionals ages 21-35, and their primary role is to build awareness and advocate for the Market. The committee meets on a monthly basis, and they are active from late winter through spring.

Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
