The Last Blast of Summer

The Prairie Township Farmers Market hosted a kid-friendly Last Blast of Summer event on Aug. 22 at the township’s community center. In addition to the regular vendors at the farmers market, Bring the Farm to You was on hand to teach children about farm animals. The farm, located in central Ohio, brings animals to schools, or special events to give kids an up-close look at the animals. Here, 4-year-old Tate Jester gets a look at a chick from the farm. The Farmer’s Market is held on Mondays from 4 to 7 p.m. through Sept. 19.
Royal didn’t mind a little attention while eating. The royal palm turkey was one of the animals featured from Bring the Farm to You.


Since the event was focused on children, deputies from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office attended to give away backpacks just in time for the start of school. Here, Nadina Kinnett and her daughters, Vada, 11, and Violet, 4, stop by to check out the goods.
Darrell Ervin of Lincoln Village tries to stop by the market every Monday to pick up some veggies from John Hartwell of the Elfrinks Farm of Hilliard.
Lily and Hunter Robinson of Galloway took advantage of a photo op while waiting in line at the Swensons Drive-In Food Truck.
