Clayton was literally built with shopping in mind. Most of downtown was constructed in the late 19th century to meet the needs of shoppers coming from both land and water.
A leisurely stroll down our main streets brings you to an array of unique shops including clothing boutiques, jewelry shops, as well as shops offering 1000 Islands collectibles to take home as a keepsake.
Maybe you are looking to take home a taste of the 1000 Islands from one of several gourmet food emporiums including “River Rat” Cheese or a bottle of the famous “Original” Thousand Islands Dressing that was created right here.
Be sure to look up while you stroll our main streets. The upper stories share attractive architectural features- window crowns, and cast-iron cornices. If you are interested in architecture, be sure to pop into the Chamber of Commerce for their walking tour brochure. It’s a self-guided passport into the intriguing history and charm of Clayton’s commercial buildings, homes and churches.
Mid River Farms
Mid River Farm produces 100% grass-fed beef. We believe this yields meat that is better tasting, healthier for you, healthier for the animal, and better for the environment.
At Mid River Farm, our cattle are fed a diet consisting only of forages (grass), and never grain. We are promoting both healthier animals and meat with a healthier fatty acid ratio. No hormones are used at any point during the life of the animal. In addition, our meat has very few food miles and is not trucked thousands of miles from farm to table.
