2017 marks the 15th season of the Clintonville Farmers' Market! And April 29 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 for seasonal, locally-produced, freshly-harvested Ohio food and lots of fun. The market runs 30 weeks this year, every Saturday through November 18th.
Ohio Direction Card (EBT), VeggieSNAPS, Debit, and Credit cards accepted at market information tent.
The mission of our non-profit, 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. Producers with eligible items accept VeggieSNAP tokens and WIC coupons. Some accept Lifecare Alliance Senior coupons, as well.
For the safety of people and produce, we ask that patrons leave pets at home. Thank you!

We are a Veggie SNAPS / Produce Perks Market
With support of the City of Columbus, the Franklin County Commissioner, and Wholesome Wave, Veggie SNAPS provides individuals enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) with a monetary incentive to purchase fruits and vegetables at 14 participating farmers markets throughout Central Ohio. Clintonville Farmers' Market offers SNAP customers a $1-for-$1 match up to $10 per market; incentive tokens may be used to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables.
Veggie SNAPS has benefits to shoppers and growers alike. Incentives allow more customers the opportunity to purchase the healthy, locally-grown ingredients that had previously been cost-prohibitive. Additionally, increased sales to new customers also make both growers and farmers’ markets more economically viable.
