Wow! We could not have hoped for a more fantastic opening day. The weather was sunny and warm, our friend Tim "Tree Boy" Bush was there to visit and broadcast live on WTHR, and we estimate around 1,500 people came to check out our 45 opening week vendors. Congratulations to everyone, as it takes all of us - including everyone of you who is supporting our farmers and producers by buying their goods.
This week we will introduce six new vendors:
Balanced Harvest Farm
Burton's Maplewood Farm
Farming for Life
Harvest Cafe Coffee
The Wee Ewe
Please sign up for the IWFM e-newsletter to receive a list each week of vendors scheduled to attend.
Remember, this is the week to shop for all your Thanksgiving food needs. Schacht Farm will have pre-ordered turkeys for pick-up. If you have not pre-ordered, Goose the Market has informed us they have a few remaining for last minute pick-ups. It would be wise to call ahead. What a better way to celebrate the bounty of harvest Indiana has to offer, and to give thanks for the pleasures and blessings we all receive day to day than in sharing a wonderful meal of good food from the good folks.
IWFM is delighted to bring together top farmers and producers from Broad Ripple Farmers Market, City Market Farmers Market, 38th St. Farmers Market, Carmel Farmers Market, Binford Summer Farmers Market and certainly some new faces with wonderful new products as well. After sharing your great market goods with friends and family on Thanksgiving, you can bring them with you on November 28th to experience the market first hand!
Isn't it fun and satisfying when your food has a story that you can associate directly with a person or family! Share the fun & tell your friends.
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday for another great day of good food, great conversation and community fun!
