This Week in Pearl Market


Pearl Market

Severe weather resulted in the market closing last Friday, but Fornoff and Henson Farms braved the storms to bring customers just-picked produce and fresh flowers.  Shoppers making a mad dash to the alley found tomatoes, corn and watermelon. Ohhhh, the Sugar Baby Watermelons from Henson's were incredible.
Hopefully, sunny skies will greet us in Pearl Market this week. Expect to see more and more produce options in the next few weeks as peak season arrives, and remember, the market is also a great place to stock up on baked goods and one-of-a-kind crafts.
Want some fresh ideas on what to do with all the fruits and veggies? Plan on coming to the market Friday when Lisa Abraham from Columbus Dispatch arrives. She'll show you how to make delicious and healthy meals using market produce, and she'll have tasty samples and recipes for you, too.
So, grab your Pearl Market shopping bag and head over to Lynn and Pearl Alleys this Tuesday and Friday. Here's who we expect to see this week in the market:
