West Plaza, Indianapolis City Market
Because every dog has his (or her!) day, we are putting on a dog show to celebrate the four-footed friends of our market customers! The show will feature four contests, judged by a panel of five judges, including John Aleshire, the C.E.O. of the Indianapolis Humane Society.
The contests are:
1. Best Dog/Owner Look-Alike
2. Best Dressed
3. Best Commands (Sit, Down, Stay)
4. Best Trick
Grand champions and runner-ups will be awarded ribbons and prizes. In addition, there will be several Indianapolis area pet organizations in the plaza prior to the beginning of the show, including the Indianapolis Humane Society, Animal Care and Control, Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic and local rescue groups.
The registration fee is $5 per dog, per contest entered and will be collected the morning of the show. Participants are encouraged to pre-register by posting on the wall of the Facebook event or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, your dog's name and the contests you would like to enter in your post or email. On-site registration the morning of Saturday, April 14th will also be available. All of the funds collected from the event will support the Eat Well Initiative at the IWFM and all participants with paws will receive a small bag of dog biscuits, courtesy of Pet Lovers Organic Bakery.
IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, the dog show will be cancelled as animals are not allowed in the market space. Tabeling organizations will set up their information tables on the second floor above the West Wing. Donated prizes will be raffled off beginning at 12:00p.m. Raffle entrants may purchase tickets, from 9:00a.m. until 11:45a.m., for $5; all proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Eat Well Initiative. Need not be present to win.

This Saturday, February 4th will be Super Saturday at Indy's SUPER Winter Farmers Market!
Every Indianapolis resident who adventures to the IWFM this Saturday can present any IWFM purchase and enter to win a $50 worth of IWFM products!
So, come on SUPER loyal IWFM customers, plot your adventure by bus, bicycle or foot this Saturday and enter to win! We'll also be giving away door prizes every half hour from 9am to 1pm. In addition, we'll keep our Veggie Valet open until 2:30pm, so you can shop early, leave your bags to walk around downtown, and come back for them by 2:30pm. See below for transportation options this Saturday.
We have a great lineup of vendors this week, some of which will be bringing one-of-a-kind products just for the Big Game. Check out the calendar here!
Share the market experience by bringing a friend, family member, or out-of-town guest with you to market. We're delighted to welcome both community members and those visiting from out of town as we celebrate the excitement and buzz of this SUPER weekend together!
Bus: Check out Indygo.net for route information and to plan your trip. All routes except the green line are free!
Shuttle: A free shuttle will be circulating Mass Ave and Fountain Square, so consider parking further away and hopping on the shuttle! Here is a map of locations you can find the free shuttle. If you're coming from further away, the Super Bowl is offering paid shuttle service from these locations.
Bike or Walk: With weather as nice as we've had, it's a great time to bike or walk to market! Ride down on the beautiful Monon Trail or stroll the world-class Cultural Trail and avoid the hassle of parking a car! Check out INDYCOG for some insights on trails, bike lanes, and how to share the road. You can park your bike at the Indy Bike Hub YMCA or outside the West Wing.

The official Super Bowl XLVI Guide is available at the app store as a helpful guide for visitors. "A detailed guide to local restaurants, nightlife and official Super Bowl events," it's a pretty great app but it lacks some favorite local spots, IWFM being one of them.
Please go to the App Store, or the Android Marketplace, and find the "Super Bowl XLVI Guide." Once on the app's page, scroll to the bottom. You'll find a "report a problem" button. Hit that button, select "my concern is not listed here" and leave a comment in the space below. Here is an example of what you could include in your comment:
As a resident of Indy you're missing a big attraction the day before the Super Bowl, The Indianapolis Winter Farmers Market located at City Market. This is downtown at the corner of Delaware and Market. Considered one of the best markets in the state, the selection of locally-sourced foods, produce, and ready-to-eat breakfast and lunch selections are great options for Big Game visitors. The market runs from 9:00am to 1:00pm. every Saturday. If you update this app please add this location for visitors who will be searching out wholesome, ethically farmed and raised food.
