Spatman to Wipe Out Grease at Farmer’s Market

CLEARWATER, Fla. – The Clearwater Public Utilities Department will carry its message to prevent cooking grease from getting into the city’s waste stream to the Clearwater Gateway Farmers Market in the 1200 block of Cleveland Street this weekend.

Department representatives will be on hand at the market, Saturday, May 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will distribute literature featuring “Spatman,” a grease-zapping cartoon character. Giveaways will also be aimed at educating market shoppers about the proper methods of cooking oils and grease disposal.

The market will feature, in addition to Spatman, live entertainment by Valentino and Berry, local food and produce, artisan goods and art that is representative of Pinellas County’s culturally diverse population.

Parking is available at the Fifth Third Bank, 1150 Cleveland St.; Greektown Grille, 1230 Cleveland St.; Maxa Enterprises, 1275 Cleveland St.; and the large grass lot on the corner of N. Lincoln Avenue and Cleveland Street.

The Clearwater Gateway Farmers Market is a partnership between the City of Clearwater, the Clearwater Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), the Pinellas County Health Department’s Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) grant, the InterCultural Advocacy Institute, and Pinellas County Health & Human Services.
