Local News Stories

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Among area vendors at the Muskingum County Fall Farmers Market—held each Saturday in Zanesville—is a locally owned, family farm that sells unique produce. Mayapple Farms, of Dresden, was on-hand today at Weasel Boy Brewery for the weekly event. Rick Felumlee, owner of Mayapple Farms, says his family will have items for sale through the final market of the season.

“We’re a very small farm out near Dresden, Ohio. Everything we sell is certified organic; right now going into the Winter season, we’re a little limited on the selection that we have. But, we have a variety of fresh mushrooms that we grow—we’ll have those all through the Winter. We also have some unique items like baby ginger and today we’ve also got a variety of garlic.”

The family decided to set up shop at the Fall Farmers Market after attending the event last year.

“We were here last year as shoppers and we were very impressed with the variety of the vendors that they have here and also with the crowd, and the support it gets from the local community. So, we thought it would be a good fit for us and it has been—it’s been great.”

The final Fall Farmers Market will be held on December 7th at Weasel Boy Brewery from 11 AM to 2 PM and will feature live music by The Wayfarers and a visit from Santa.
