The historic Mathias Mitchell Public Square in downtown Stevens Point is home to the longest-running farmers market in the State of Wisconsin. The two square-block marketplace at the end of Main St. has been the focal point for farmers selling their wares since Mitchell donated it to the town in 1847.
The market is open from May through October, 6:30 A.M until the vendors sell out, which is usually around 2:30 pm. Saturday is the biggest market day of the week.
The market is managed by the Stevens Point Farmers Market Association, a private (non-government) group.
