I love to be able to walk to the market every saturday morning. I think the fresh produce is amazing as well as the varities and quantities. I love how accessible and willing to talk the merchants are to dicuss growing procedures and giving tip for the back yard veggie gardners like myself.

The market is held in the center of the neighborhood, rather than at some fairground or something, so it's a real community event! To get there, my neighbors & I can ride our bicycles, take the bus, or walk. The selection of produce is fantastic - I do 90% of my shopping here during the growing season. And the vendors themselves are wonderful - small & local farms, with the majority committed to organic and sustainable farming practices. I'm proud to support them!

It's a community network of very dedicated folks. They not only support local farming through supply, but also are very attentive to education, sharing, and community growth in general. The benefits and involvement they are offer just make you right at home with farming.

The market farmers cater to the Clintonville customer. They know Clintonville shoppers want local, fresh and will try new things. If you ask a producer what's new today? They will often not only offer you a sample, but will instruct you in how to prepare it.

  • Sherman Hall

This market has more variety and overall higher quality than other markets in our area. This is due, in large part, to the fact that the market director actually visits farms, gets to know the farmers, and looks to include growers of diverse products. The growers themselves are second to none, and it is clear that they care about direct interaction with customers; it's better for them, and better for us.

The Clintonville farmer's market is a community supporting our local agriculture. We are blessed each week with hard working farmers, gardeners and bakers offering the fruits of their labor. The selection is wonderful and the products fresh and tasty. The farmers/vendors have become part of our community; sharing their secrets, recipes and stories.

It reminds me of my childhood... when we shopped at roadside stands for produce or early morning Sundays when we bought eggs from the farm's refrigerator on the honor system (and I'm not that old!). I like knowing where my food is grown and how it's grown! I love the freshness of the food and that the stand owner has to have produced the goods. All the owners or their reps are right there, very, very pleasant, and especially helpful with suggestions for items I might never have tried before; I learn so much about how they've produced the food. In addition, it's a small-town urban/funky atmosphere and every week is an adventure.

Direct contact with the people who actually grow the food without the intervention of middlemen allows farmers to profit more from their labor is a fabulous way to get the freshest possible (and produce at it's most nutricious peak) is a win-win deal for all. The Clintonville market has a festive atmosphere making it a blast to attend and easy to support our local farmers! I love it.

I started going to the market because I wanted more control over the level of chemicals and pesticides in my food as well as a desire to buy locally due to environmental concerns, but I continue to go every Saturday because of the wonderful environment and the quality food. Our farmer's market really is a great community event - one where you can rub elbows with your neighbors while browsing a wide variety of delicious local food, talk to your farmers animatedly about how their fields are doing, and listen to the local musicians performing on the street corner, all while dodging kids and dogs and friends chatting about the best way to cook their new purchases. Last year the market even expanded its season so that it went through the winter and kept us going until the spring shoots came again. Now I cook more than I ever have before, I eat much healthier, and I really feel that our market is a substantial reason why!

I can't imagine our neighborhood without the farmer's market, which gets better every year. Not only do I eat healthier during the market season, savoring the superior taste of the freshest produce, meats, poultry, dairy, baked goods and more, but I also enjoy it as a weekly neighborhood gathering place. I chat with old friends, meet new ones, and learn about the food I'm eating from the farmers who grew it. Beats the grocery store by a mile!

Not unlike other farmers' markets, I suspect, our Clintonville FM is a terrific neighborhood "happening": such a variety of fresh, organic produce, flowers, creative products to eat, music, laughter, new finds each week to supplement our own garden, and, best of all, the spirit-lifting benefits of meeting the farmers who grow your food and getting together with friends and neighbors (and families) in a healthy, knowing-you-are-helping-the-planet setting. It just feels GOOD.

I want to support local growers, eat healthy, and reduce dependance on shipping our food supply across country. The long distance shipping is hard on the environment and economy in so many ways (energy consumption, takes money away from small farmers, etc) and the quality of the food is far inferior than what is locally grown.
