LEBANON, OH -- Looking for fresh produce and baked goods that are either grown or made locally, Warren County has at least three farmers markets in the area with the City of Lebanon, the county seat, being the site for one of them.

Easy to find, along with easy accessible parking, the market sits at the corner of Main Street and Sycamore Street... just one block west of the Golden Lamb.

While the city's Website states it is open from 3pm to 7pm every Thursday from mid-May through mid-Oct, a few of the vendors explained that they set up every Thursday all year..."except Thanksgiving," added Sylvia Shelton of Glory Farms.

Here are just a few of the vendors that can be found at Lebanon's Farmers Market...

CRAVINGS BY JANET

Janet Harville, owner of Cravings By Janet, recently opened a shop in Downtown Franklin, but still enjoys going to the local markets to meet people to help promote and sell her sweet products. To learn more about Cravings By Janet click the photo above to link you to her website.

Pineapple Cream Cake, Apple Pie Cupcakes with Vanilla Cinnamon or Lemon Glazed Blueberry Boyfriend Bait are just a few of the homemade bake goods that can be purchased from Cravings By Janet.

A recent bakery in downtown Franklin, Cravings By Janet was started by Janet and Wil Harville. According to Janet their business started around a Hot Chocolate Bomb. All bake goods are hand crafted.

Janet added that if you are craving something sweet and have no way to come get it, they will deliver —for a small delivery charge for gas.

GLORY FARMS

To visit Glory Farms Facebook Page, click on the above photo to learn more about the farm and its products.

While Glory Farm's products are not "certified" organic, they are grown as close to being an organic product as they can, explained Sylvia Shelton, who has been farming and baking the majority of her life.

A unique item Glory Farms carries and is fresh from the garden is Amaranth. This ancient grain can be consumed as a leaf, cereal grain, amaranth flour and amaranth oil. Its leaf is similar to spinach.

In researching the Amaranth, Dr. Josh Axe explains on his Website draxe.com,"The benefits of amaranth come from the fact that it’s a complete protein that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. It’s also rich in fiber and has shown to fight heart disease and digestive problems." 

When it comes to Glory Farms, Shelton is know for her shortbread and her fruitcakes, but she also has a wide selection of home-made breads, cookies and jams that seem to sell out rather quickly, too.

WEBB VALLEY FARM

Fresh brown eggs, grass fed beef and lamb are just a few of the items found at Webb Valley Farm.

Family Owned and Operated since 1905. Webb Valley Farm uses sustainable farming practices. All beef and lamb are strictly grass fed, while the pork is raised in our woods where they can eat roots, bugs, and a mix of non-GMO grains.
