Farmer's Market coming to Clintonville
The City of Clintonville experienced a swarm of earthquakes as confirmed by the USGS beginning March 20, 2012. The largest confirmed event was a 1.5 magnitude earthquake on March 20, 2012. Although it was a surprise and somewhat disruptive to some members of the community, the City is glad that no personal injury or major property damage occurred from these events. The past few weeks have been very quiet in Clintonville and the seismometers will likely be removed in the next week.
To commemorate the community's handling of this situation with pride, Mayor Judith I. Magee ordered 1,000 t-shirts that say "I Survived the 1.5". Over 800 t-shirts have already been sold. The Mayor announced on Friday, April 20, that the proceeds from the t-shirt sale will be used to promote and begin a Downtown Saturday morning Summer Farmer's Market in Clintonville.
More details will be determined at a later date in May but the market will be held along the Riverwalk off of Main Street and it will be every Saturday beginning in the morning and ending in the early afternoon. For the first year there will be no charge to vendors selling products at the market. This event will be restricted to home grown, home-made, and hand crafted items. It is not meant to be similar to a rummage sale or flea market type event. One spot will be open each week for a non-profit group to have a sale such as a brat fry, bake sale type stand. Since this non-profit spot is limited to one per week, there will be a short one page application for any non-profit group interested in participating. This form will be available in early May for interested non-profit groups. At this time the City would ask that individuals or businesses interested in selling products at the Farmer's Market please contact City Hall at 715-823-7600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
