2014 marks the 12th season of the Clintonville Farmers' Market! And April 26 marks the opening day of outdoor Saturday markets along N. High Street, between Orchard Lane and W. Dunedin Road. Join us from 9:00-Noon! We promise seasonal, locally-produced, freshly-harvested Ohio food and lots of fun. Dates for our peak-season Wednesday market are June 18 through August 20, 4-7pm.
The mission of our community-based market is to support excellent growers and producers while nurturing community appreciation of wholesome local foods in a lively neighborhood setting. We are a producer-only market, which means that everything you see at market is grown or produced by the stall farmer or cottage food producer.
Ride your bike to market and park bikes, wagons, and strollers at the Baer Wheels Bike Corral. Visit the market information table to exchange debit card and Ohio Direction Cards EBT/SNAP for market tokens. Some producers accept Seniors and WIC coupons, as well.
Michelle White won't have much time between wrapping up the regular Clintonville Farmers Market and gearing up for the new Winter Wednesday Market. "The good news is that we don't have much of a break between the end of the season and the winter market," said White, who now serves as manager for both. "I think we have a week and a half off. It's always sad to say goodbye to that season, but we're hoping the Winter Wednesdays are a hit with the community."
