Local markets collect and distribute the finest products of the community, from fresh harvests to the municipal collection of police mustaches. Peruse the local bazaar with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of local produce and gifts at the Dublin Farmers' Market in historic Dublin. The Dublin Community Church hosts the market, which is open Wednesday evenings in June through August from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and in September from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Next to the verdant lawns and red bricks of Dublin Community Church, Dublin Farmers' Market vendors peddle seasonal fruit, local produce, jams, flowers, and gifts. Browsers can stop by the Blue Jacket Dairy stall to pick up a package of fresh cheddar-cheese curds ($5.48/half pound) liberated from the obnoxious whey. Customers also encounter goods from organic farms such as It's My Thyme, a small operation displaying gourmet herb jellies in flavors such as lemon verbena and pineapple sage ($5/jar). OK mercantile spruces up meat with seasoned rubs ($5.98/3 oz.), and Oink Moo Cluck Farms' humanely processed, hormone-free whole chickens ($2.25/lb.) enjoy a full life eating natural grains and riding horses on the 100-acre family farm. Products and prices may vary weekly.
The Dublin Farmers' Market caters to families and youths with events throughout the season, such as the August 3 Dublin Police Bicycle Patrol appearance, during which officers promote bike safety and show off their police cruiser outfitted with a bike carrier. On September 7, the Ohio Wildlife Center brings birds, mammals, and reptiles to the market for hands-on activities that include tying sailor's knots out of snakes.
