All of us from the Indy Winter Farmers Market hope you have had very happy holidays thus far, including the sharing of good food with great friends and family. Traveling out of Indianapolis to my childhood home for the holidays has already made me grateful for my Indianapolis home. We have shared some lovely meals with both family and friends, but I have really been astonished with the realizations of all the wonderful food items that have been brought to my daily meals through the farmers market. Observing the difference of grocery store reliant food shopping and the tastes of subsequent meals at home makes me very aware and very thankful, again, for this market - including all the many volunteers, growers, producers and patrons that make it possible.
The market is open tomorrow, though it will be a little smaller in vendor numbers. Nonetheless, we encourage you to make it out and make the most of the broad variety of options that will be available tomorrow. Sweet potatoes are back with Heartland Family Farm, Capriole Cheese, onions and greens from Stout's Melody Acres, the wonderful pasta sauces and mushroom patties of local folks foods, and plenty of delightful baked goodness from Valentine Hill and Rene's, and of course chicken, eggs, and so much more! Take you visiting friends and family and share with them Indy's new winter delight!
Also, the new Indy Food Coop will be back with information and taking memberships. Find out how you can be one of the founding 150 members!
We'll be back in full swing with some fun new additions on January 3rd. Gradually the days will be getting longer again, and before we know it spring will be blooming. Personally, I'm going to enjoy winter while it is hear, and continue to delight in the wonders of winter bounty that fill the tables of our growers and producers each week.
Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you Saturday!
