Support our farmers & producers, Support yourself, Support our community! Buy Local!

Eating locally grown food is nothing new. A hundred years ago, over 95% of Americans lived on farms, and city dwellers relied on nearby farms to bring food in to the cities. Yet, far from being a relic of the past, farmers markets are a naturally beneficial way to “feed” the modern urban life, while also supporting local economy growth, individual health, and community building. Everybody wins!
  • Local farms stay in business by bringing fresh, homegrown food to city neighborhoods.
  • City dwellers can enjoy the health and taste benefits of eating locally grown produce.
  • Individuals from all around Indianapolis & Indiana get together, have fun and build relationships. Farmers find out what consumers want to finesse their growth and production. Urban dwellers have the opportunity to better understand what they are eating, where it came from, try new healthy foods, and ask about delicious ways to prepare it at home. The Indianapolis community benefits as individuals from all walks of life visit, learn, eat and together create a more sustainable lifestyle for themselves and the future.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning, November 15th for the first week of the Indianapolis Winter Farmers Market!

sounds great - how about locally milled flours and grains? (if there is such a thing!)

I'm there! I have already begun to miss City Market's wednesdays. I live on the near east side and this is close to home. Do you think you may have fresh Indiana Christmas trees in December?

You had asked for additional ideas, and I hope you will have Christmas trees (Fraser Fur) and similar items around the holidays.

Cats Haven, a local no-kill cat shelter that is located near the Winter Farmer's Market, would love to be able to hand out resource information . . . low-cost spay/neuter, feral cat info, adoption info, and so on. Who would we contact to participate in the Farmer's Market? - Susan Hobbs, Cats Haven Volunteer Coordinator, susan@pjfuzzypaws.com
