Farmers Market

Bellville Farmers MarketThe 2017 Bellville Farmers Market will be held each Saturday morning from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon, May 13, 2017 until October 7, 2017. This event takes place on the square in downtown Bellville every Saturday - rain or shine. Fresh produce and cottage products are available for purchase from many different vendors.

Vendors may not set up before 7:30 a.m. on the day of the market and must be ready to sell by 8:45 a.m.  The market provides space for growers to sell their own “home grown” produce and plants, as well as cottage food production items made or packaged by the producers. Vendors will provide own table.

For the 2017 season, we will welcome producers with agriculturally motivated products that are approved by the Bellville Farmers Market Advisory Committee. Producers must arrive by 8:15 to retain their reserved location.

This Farmers Market is intended to support local growers and producers in Bellville and limited surrounding areas, within 15 mile radius.   It is not intended to be a re-sale market for produce, plants, or other items purchased elsewhere.  All cottage food products must be made or packaged by the signed producer.  All produce (fruit and vegetables) and plants must be grown by the producer.  Producers need to submit all addresses where they will be growing their produce/plants.  Producers may use another person’s land only if produce/plants are being grown and cared for by the named producer.   The Farmers Market Advisory Committee, with the assistance of fellow producers, will visit participating gardens/farms to validate accuracy of submitted information.

For more information, contact Jeff Wilkinson, Farmers Market Manager, at 419-989-1119.


Clear Fork Subdistrict of Muskingum Watershed Conservative Districe

Clear Fork Subdistrict of the
Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District

Clear Fork Subdistrict of the MWCD was formed June 7, 2015.  The MWCD is working with the United States Geological Survey of the U. S. Department of the Interior to study the waters of the Clear Fork.  Part of that study includes a gauge placed on the Main Street Bridge in Bellville (St. Rt. 13 Bridge or “The Blue Bridge”).




Currently, you are able to view the depth of the water on-line at that location, as well as, the Black Fork and the Clear Fork Reservoir.  With a few clicks of your mouse you can have the gauge text you when the water goes over a certain depth that you choose.
