Clintonville Farmers Market


Farmers Market season is in full swing. And boy, have the farmers been busy or what? With all the rain, and the coolish spring we have had, I was VERY impressed with what was on the offer at the infamous Clintonville Farmers Market today.


I know I have to stop comparing life here with life in Northern California. That was then, this is now. However, it is safe to say that the Clintonville folks have got it right. They have a thriving farmers market, regardless of what standard it is compared to. Sure it is lacking the local avocados, and the deep yellowish orange Meyer lemons, or the sweet ripe fresh figs...but what I saw today was impressive. Especially when it is still May.


There were strawberries, and asparagus, mushrooms and grass fed beef, vegan burgers and farm fresh eggs, Ohio maple syrup, honey, and so many plants and flowers I forgot where I actually was!

Needless to say, if you have not visited this wonderful market, you must. It happens every Saturday from now until late fall. Get ready for a lot of great local produce, and artisanal goodies. You can also feel a strong sense of community here, and it was only my first go-round!

Clintonville Farmers Market
The market is located in Clintonville along the west side of North High Street at Dunedin Road between Orchard Lane and Torrence Road. Open Saturdays until Oct 29, 2011.
