Hilliard Farm Market has reopened! The fifth year for the Hilliard Farm Market at the corner of Main and Center Streets on June 3 and is open every Tuesday through August. This project started as a project of Leadership Hilliard which is a

program committed to its mission to enhance the Hilliard community by developing and cultivating current and potential leaders. The purpose of the Hilliard Farm Market is to offer the

community the opportunity to purchase locally-grown produce directly from farmers. The market will enhance the economic viability of our local farmers while providing a variety of fresh and nutritional

food choices. The market also helps further the development of the Hilliard community by providing an activity which fosters social gathering and interaction.

Hilliard Area Chamber of Commerce Business Monthly BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Bell Tree Productions, Inc. What is it that the Columbus area needs in order for it to become a cultural powerhouse? This was the question that faced two brothers both born and raised in Hilliard, Ohio. To them it was obvious, a team of individuals who were passionate about music, film and all forms of art; hence Bell Tree Productions was born. As the Columbus area keeps moving forward, the local community grows and embraces its identity, a strong backer of the arts seemed all but a necessity. Bell Tree Productions, or as some refer to them, BTP, focuses its attention to reach out to artist’s of all ages and sizes to help them embrace the passion that they have burning inside. As one of the only record labels in the greater Columbus metro

area, Bell Tree Productions continues to grow in its local and national impact. Bell Tree Productions, a young ambitious company has garnered the attention of large events such as the upcoming Fashion Meets Music Festival, along with individuals who are simply looking for some fantastic local music to compliment a special event. Bell Tree Productions not only welcomes, but also encourages people to reach out to them, as they can help you book great local talent for any and all events. While the company

focuses on embracing the local arts community Bell Tree Productions also is working to become a large philanthropic supporter. BTP is already a corporate sponsor for the Citrus Rush Cancer Crush, a 5k event benefitting Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help fight childhood cancer. On top of this event, Bell Tree Productions works to help other local and global charities. You too can help the Bell Tree Productions mission to help grow the greater Columbus arts community. BTP is currently selling T-shirts with their logo on them in
