Every Sunday, over 60 vendors roll into the streets of Downtown Clermont, attracting families and friends to stroll and shop. You’ll find the market bustling along Montrose Street centered between 7th and 8th streets. Among the popular items for sale are fresh, organic and hydroponic produce, seafood, cheese, sausage, baked goods, coffee, plants, collectibles and assorted crafts. There’s a veterinarian, food trucks, fresh baked foods, chef demonstrations, entertainment and other weekly and seasonal themes. Many of the downtown stores and restaurants are always open on Sunday mornings, too. The Clermont Downtown Partnership uses the funds to create Clermont events like the Heritage Festival, Harvest Fest, the Downtown Clermont Art Festival, First Friday events and many other activities. Take a look at some recent moments captured at the market.
