Historic Hamilton, Ohio Farmers Market
In the summer of 1875 a contingent of farmers and other local vendors drove their trucks into downtown Hamilton, Ohio near the courthouse on High Street where they offered goods such as firewood, dairy goods, fruits, vegetables, eggs, crafts, and more. The atmosphere was casual, the open air commerce enticing, the goods fresh, and the result remarkable. This became a downtown institution until the mid-1950’s.
Thanks to the effort of Historic Hamilton, Inc. the Hamilton Farmer’s Market is up and running again offering various types of produce and flowers. Specialties include mushrooms, herbs, and beautiful flowers, all of which are locally grown.
Today’s Farmers Market
The Farmers Market is held every Saturday between May and October in downtown Hamilton, Ohio at the Bulter County Courthouse Square. This year the Farmers Market runs from May thry October . Here you’ll find local farmers, merchants and other vendors displayed their produce, crafts and other products on the tailgates of their vehicles and sidewalk stands.
