Indy Winter Farmer Market Vendor: Growing Places Indy

Every week during the Indy Winter Farmers Market season, we'll be profiling one of our local vendors! You can find the full list of IWFM vendors and past profiles here.

Growing Places Indy  
We are the non-profit that brings you the IWFM! We also operate four micro-farms around downtown, which generate funding for our youth and adult educational programs. In 2012, we began growing microgreens year-round in the greenhouse at the Chase Near Eastside Legacy Center, just 1.5 miles from the City Market. We supply several local restaurants with microgreens, and we are delighted to expand to the market as well! 
Most popular item?
We're excited to see what you love the most! One of our staff favorites is micro radish greens, which are an intense purple and have a spicy kick. We don't use any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers.
Why should people shop at the IWFM?
Because it's the best grocery shopping experience in town! You know everything is fresh and delicious. You get to meet the people who grow/raise the food. A trip to the grocery store is just that. But a trip to the IWFM is an experience that benefits you and the community!
What do you buy at the IWFM?
You'll find Growing Places Indy staff, board members, volunteers, supporters and friends at the IWFM every week, and between us we buy just about everything at the market!
