Residents of our Worthington apartments have so much to look forward to this summer—a resort-style pool, bocce ball and volleyball courts, fenced-in dog parks, and even a sports tavern to watch your favorite team play. But when you feel like getting out and about and purchasing some local produce and goods, there are tons of incredible farmers markets and orchards to check out nearby. Here are some of the best farmers markets and orchards near District at Linworth.
Worthington Farmers Market
You’ll only need to drive (or walk!) just over 2 miles from District at Linworth to get to the Worthington Farmers Market. Happening every Saturday through October, this farmers market is currently in its 35th season and is open rain or shine. Celebrate all things local with nearly 80 farmers and food producers, including Black Radish Creamery, Owl Creek Bison, Cottage Garden, Red Barn Chili, SaraBee Pure Honey, and so many more. View a list of all the participating vendors and order products online through the Worthington Farmers Market website.
HTH Farm Market
Starting out as a Christmas tree farm back in 2012, the HTH Farm Market has grown into a go-to spot for fresh local produce, flowers, cheese, baked goods, jams, jellies, and lots more. All proceeds from HTH Farm Market benefit Hope Thru Housing, a 24-month residential substance abuse program located in Columbus, Ohio. They are open daily during spring and summer with limited hours during the winter. Learn more about hours, vendors, and more on the HTH Farm Market website.
The Dublin Market at Bridge Park
Less than a ten-minute drive from our apartments in Worthington, Ohio, is The Dublin Market at Bridge Park. Taking place every Saturday on Longshore Street from 9 am to 12 pm through September, this massive farmers market boasts over 120 local farmers, craftsmen, and makers, along with entertainment, activities, and fitness programs—the perfect destination for the entire family. Vendors include Blueberried Alive, Grandpop’s Hops, Sauce Boss Gang, Fired Up Pizza, Jenny’s Tasty Treats, Preserved Posies, and dozens more.

The Orchard & Co.
Family-owned and operated, The Orchard & Co. is the place to be this fall. Providing a variety of produce from apples to pumpkins, the market is the perfect place to stock up on local goodies. Plus, you’ll find exciting activities for the family like tractor-drawn wagon rides, a large corn pit to excavate in, hill slides, and ziplines—and those are just to name a few. Then, stop by their fresh bakery items and buy a tasty treat to enjoy by the pond after a long walk through the orchard. Find all the details you need on The Orchard & Co.’s website.
Hann Farms Market
Running through the month of October, the Hann Farms Market is less than 30 minutes from our Worthington apartments. Homegrown green beans, cucumbers, squash, peppers, peaches, cantaloupe, and watermelons are just some of their incredibly delicious produce offerings. Next year, be sure to get there in May when they have some of the tastiest homegrown strawberries around. Head to the Hann Farms market website for more information.
Cherry Hawk Farm
Opening back up in August, the Cherry Hawk Farm is where you can find “apple-picking like it used to be,” according to their website. “Experience what your parents and grandparents might have in our apple orchard. Over a dozen varieties ripen over the season in a beautiful, natural setting. An easy drive in the country from Columbus, Hilliard, Dublin, Powell, Delaware, and Worthington,” they announce. You’ll also want to take a stroll through their gorgeous sunflower farm, where you’re allowed to pick one stem with admission. Learn more on the Cherry Hawk Farm website.
