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 managed by the Stevens Point Farmers Market Association, a private (non-government) group.
When the public square transforms for winter, the farmers market moves into community centers until the following year. The Stevens Point Area Winter Farmers Market features additional farmers on Saturdays from November through April.
