We especially invite all our members--past, present, and hopefully future--to attend and meet the folks over at the Bexley Natural Market!
We welcome one and all to a meet-and-greet with the vibrant colors and flavors of the '80s AND members of the Slow Food Columbus community!

Good, clean, and fair food not only is delicious but is healthy...especially for our children!
