May is for Foodies!

May is always, always one of my favorite months of the year – if not for the great weather (the cold snaps of early spring are behind us, and the weather is still cool enough to enjoy spending time outdoors), then definitely for the events for food lovers that are held this month. Today I’m […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 5/5/2012

Here it is the second full week of the 2012 growing season, and this week it was especially crowded because both the Market to Market Ride and the Half Marathon were being held at the same time. Because of that, finding parking was a little more difficult, and the North Market especially was very crowded. […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 4/28/2012

Well, I promised that I’d be much better about getting up the farmers market reports in a more timely manner this year – so in the interest of keeping that promise, looks like you’ll see some of this year’s posts before I finish putting up the rest of last season’s… Happily, today was the first […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 7/16/2011

Not too many pictures from this farmers market Saturday, I’m afraid to say. I believe it was because it was my first full day at home after Dodd, and I was still trying to get used to taking pictures from a wheelchair, thus many less good ones came out. Definitely a milestone day, nonetheless. OPEN […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 7/2/2011

It’s finally starting to feel like winter around here – we finally got a little snow. No more than just a dusting, but just enough to remind us winter hasn’t finished rearing its ugly head just yet. What better time to look at pictures from last summer’s farmers markets, and to start counting down the […]

Event: 2011 North Market Apron Gala

Sad to say, I wasn’t able to make it to the Apron Gala this past year. I held an unrealistic hope that I’d be well enough to attend, but that would have depended on me getting off a ventilator, getting my trach removed, and being able to hold myself upright in a matter of 2 […]

Farm Fresh and Local Produce 6/4/2011

When the farmers markets started up for the season, I unfortunately was still in the hospital being weaned off a ventilator and hopelessly weak (I couldn’t even sit up without toppling over). Going to the farmers market is the one thing that grounds me, no matter how frenetic the rest of my life is at […]

Visiting the Farmers Markets Vicariously

I’ve been sick for so long that being able to a farmers market is a dream to work toward. In the meantime, i’m going to post some yet-unpublished pictures to remind myself and you all of what to look forward to. Check out all my pics from last year’s markets in the slideshow below.   […]

North Market Jelly & Jam Contest 2009

Original Post Date: 8/20/2009 — My wife, Columbus Foodie, will tell anyone willing to listen that for all my faults, I’m one HELL of a cannin’ fool.  I’ve singlehandedly canned all manner of jams, preserves, and now jellies since we’ve gotten into the whole food preservation thing.  Heck, right now I’ve got a tub of […]
