Clearwater, September 30, 2015 – On Saturday October 24th, the Cleveland Street Saturday Market will be launched by two seasoned downtown Clearwater activists – Howard Warshauer and Shelley Jaffe. The market will bring in locally produced goods, provide live music and have special events monthly.
The CoManagers are Howard Warshauer, cofounder of the Clearwater Downtown Partnership and current Chairman of Clearwater Community Gardens; and Shelley Jaffe retired chef and now president and owner of Clearwater Center for the Arts, at 621 Cleveland Street. “We both believe in downtown Clearwater and will continue with efforts to enhance the resident and visitor experience by bringing this market to Cleveland Street” says Howard Warshauer. “I believe that the market will help bring the residents of Clearwater and its surrounding areas together as a community, where they can do their weekly shopping, meet friends and enjoy locally produced goods” says Shelley Jaffe.
The new market, named Cleveland Street Saturday Market, will feature locally grown and made goods. Some of the items the market will feature are local organic and natural food products, body care products, pet items, household items, arts, and crafts.
