Renick’s Family Market Has Closed And I’m Not Crying, You’re Crying

After nearly 60 years of bringing joy to central Ohio, Renick’s Family Market closed their farm on October 31.


Fondly remembered as a place to pick pumpkins with the family or enjoy some roasted corn and other fall treats, the farm has been in owner David Renick’s family since the 1700s.

“Farming gets in your blood and it’s something you do and something you grow up with. My father built this market in 1959,” David Renick told NBC4.

But he and his wife, Linda, are now 70 years old and they want to spend time with their grandchildren and focus on the bible study group they run out of their home.

“We’re both 70. And I told my husband, in 10 years we’re gonna be 80,” Linda Renick told WOSU. “Are we gonna be able to do the things we wanted to do when we were 70?”

The couple spent their last day with visits from loyal customers and enjoying one last day on the farm.

It’s the end of an era folks, and I’m not even okay.
