The Square in Stevens Point Wisconsin

  When I first moved to Stevens Point to attend college, the square was more known to us kids as a place with dozens of bars and a farmers market that we seldom attended.

  These days with a higher drinking age, less college public drinking and thus less bars, it is a place with shops, offices and a renewed farmers market with a large beautiful fountain.

 

  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, 7:00 A.M until the vendors sell out, which is usually around 2:30 pm. Saturday is the biggest market day of the week.

That is a pretty downtown area. Like so many in college towns they evolve with the times. The historic old buildings are reminiscent of Downtown Clarksville.
