Clintonville residents have two more opportunities this year to purchase locally grown produce and other farm products at the Clintonville Farmers Market.

The last regular market of the seventh season will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday on North High Street, between Orchard Lane and West Dunedin Road.

The "postseason" harvest market is scheduled for the same time and location on Saturday, Nov. 21. It's the third time the market has concluded its year with a harvest market, manager Laura Zimmerman said.

"It's an opportunity for people to order special items for Thanksgiving and the holidays," she said. "It focuses more on winter and late-season produce. There will be more baked good and items that are holiday-related. You can come and pretty much get all of your fixings for your Thanksgiving meal."

As for the main attraction on the Thanksgiving table, customers can order turkeys from the market's farmers by visiting www.clintonvillefarmersmarket.org and e-mailing the market, Zimmerman said.

Products available at the harvest market include potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash, carrots, parsnips, herbs, bread, pumpkin pies and sweet potato pies, she said.

Zimmerman estimated that at least five kinds of potatoes and up to 10 types of winter squash would be available. Producers selling meats other than turkey and non-meat selections such as veggie burgers also will be on hand.

In addition, a vendor will be there to sharpen customers' gardening tools and knives for carving turkeys, she said.

Organizers estimate about 1,200 people have attended each farmers market this season, and they believe that's an increase from past years, although crowd totals haven't been kept until recently.

Zimmerman said the market has 57 vendors staffing 42 booths -- 11 more than the highest booth total from last year. Not all 57 of those vendors participated every Saturday, though.

The market also is offering more cheese and dairy products than in past years, she said.

"It's just been a great season," she said.

Preparations already have begun for next year, when the market will be held on 29 Saturdays instead of 26.

Unlike in past years, the 2010 market won't take a break after starting the season in early May with its "Spring Sprout," Zimmerman said.

"We have enough producers now who produce early season produce that they want to come through May," she said.

The farmers market's advisory board is looking for new members willing to serve the next two years. The seats are open to any Clintonville resident or business owner. Those interested should call board chair Lynne Genter at (614) 262-0226.

The board has five members, and organizers would like to increase that total, said Zimmerman, who is not a board member.
