Did you know the Claremont farmers market is 15 years old this year? It dates to 1996, as I learned from the market’s new website. View the site here.
The Farmers and Artisans Market, the official name, takes place each Sunday, rain or shine, in the Claremont Village, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Vehicle traffic is barred from one block of Second Street, between Indian Hill Boulevard and Yale Avenue, for the market, in which more than 100 vendors, either growers or artisans, take part.
It’s a lively street scene each week.
The market sponsor is the nonprofit Claremont Forum, a community organization that runs the Prison Library Project and various health and wellness classes.
As for the website, “There is new market information, vendor updates, photos and a new market blog,” volunteer Rachel McDonnell tells me. “The website will be updated frequently and I hope it becomes a resource for local residents.”
