IWFM St Patrick's Bike Day
Join the Indy Winter Farmers Market for St Patrick's Bike Day!
Bike down to the IWFM on March 17th in your dapperest get-up (St Patricks day and/or Tweed costumes) and ride your loveliest cycle (or penny-farthing) for a chance to win prizes from BGI and the Indy Bike Hub! Everyone who rides or dresses in their St Pat's Day attire will be eligible to enter the raffle.
Starting at 10am on Saturday March 17th, the IWFM St Patrick's Bike Day will kick off by showcasing some of our City's best bicycling organizations – INDYCOG and Bicycle Indiana, The Mayor's Office of Sustainability, the Indy Bike Hub, The Cultural Trail, and others. Learn more about riding downtown and see how you can be involved in making Indy a Bicycle Friendly City.
Grab a bite to eat, pick up some groceries (which fit nicely into some kitty litter paniers, which can be purchased from the INDYCOG booth), sip a cup of tea and listen to some Irish-themed music on the outdoor stage. At 12pm, all cyclists are invited to join in an informal bike ride around the City and the Cultural Trail, stopping at various sites and St Patrick's Day activities along the way. We will make one or two stops and ride Courteous Mass style for about 5-10 miles. We will end back at the market at one of our favorite pubs, the Tomlinson Tap Room.
Join the Indy Winter Farmers Market for a great morning and the perfect way to start your St Patrick's Day festivities!
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.
