1st Raffle Green Travel & Green Trivia Winners!
Last week was the fourth week and thus time for the first Green Travel and Green Trivia Raffle Drawings. And the winners are...
Congratulations to Kelly B., who won the GREEN TRAVEL MONTHLY RAFFLE(and a gift certificate to Comedy Sportz). Many thanks to Kelly and all of the other dedicated individuals who either rode their bike, walked, carpooled, or took public transportation to reach the Market. The founders and staff at the IWFM (and we’re sure many of you) feel that the Market is more than just a way to connect consumers to local farmers and fresh food – we also hope to create a community based on conscious living that supports individuals, businesses, the greater Indianapolis community, the environment, and ultimately the globe in more sustainable and peaceful living. Encouraging and participating in Green Travel is just one of many ways to accomplish this.
The monthly raffle starts over this Saturdayand with it your chances of winning. The next raffle prize is a five class package to Cityoga (located in the former IWFM home at 2442 N. Central Ave.) So bundle up and keep visiting us by foot, pedal or public transport and remember to enter your name and contact information at the Market Information Table when you travel without your car!
So, bundle up for the colder weather
Congratulations to Nicholas, the winner ofGreenPieceIndy’s GREEN TRIVIA MONTHLY RAFFLE, who correctly guessed the Green Tip. He won a reusable bag and a Green Savings Indy coupon book.

The Indianapolis Winter Farmers Market connects local farmers with city residents by delivering fresh healthy produce to the West Wing of the Indianapolis City Market on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from November 12, 2011 - April 21, 2012. The Indy Winter Market allows Indianapolis’ urban-dwelling residents to purchase vegetables, fruit, meat, baked goods, herbs, natural cleaning products and other locally produced food & household products straight from regional farmers. By directly connecting farmers and producers to Indianapolis area residents, the Indy Winter Market supports family farms, preserves farm land, delivers fresh healthy produce to Indianapolis residents, and reduces the environmental effects that result from food traveling across the country or world.
