Aug. 2-8 is National Farmers' Market Week, and two special events are planned to celebrate it at the Clintonville Farmers' Market.

Starting off the week, the annual "Farmer Appreciation Day" will take place Aug. 2.

This year, in addition to events like the "Farmer Tan" contest, the market will host Robin Davis, food editor for The Columbus Dispatch. Davis will use market produce to create a dish for customers to sample at the market tent.

On Tuesday, Aug. 4, the Clintonville Farmers' Market will be represented in the Ohio Proud farmers market at the Ohio State Fair. This will be the second year for the fair's daily market. The fair market is open 9 a.m. until 7 p.m., or when produce runs out.

Fairgoers may pay and then pick up purchases as they leave the fair.

The Clintonville Farmers' Market runs every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon through Oct. 31. The market is on North High Street between Orchard Lane and West Dunedin Road.

Customer parking is available in three lots: Cephas Capital at Oakland Park and High, Columbus Mennonite Church at 35 Oakland Park and the Brevoort Building, 3620 N. High St.
