The Original Farmers' Market at the Indianapolis City Market returns Wednesday for its 22nd season.
Joe Perin at Indianapolis City Market says every Wednesday through October, vendors from all over the state will sell food, flowers and other locally-made items. There will be nine new vendors this year Barnhouse Farms; Circle City Kombucha; CRG Grow; Daniel’s Vineyard; Generations Pie Company; Hertensteins Hops, Herbs, & Honey; Love & Cobbler; Naptown Flo; and SonShine Kombucha.
“A lot of new people," Peris says, "a lot of returning faces that market goers from the past will recognize and will be glad to see again.”
Perin says the Buy 2 Give 1 program is back, which allows market goers to buy additional products for those-in-need.
“We will collect all of the donated produce at the end of the market day and then take all of that donated produce to one of three downtown food shelters,” perin says.
Approximately 4,300 pounds of produce was donated throughout the 2017 season.
During the Original Farmers' Market, live entertainment can be found on The Sun King Stage, located on the City Market’s Whistler (West) Plaza, every farmers’ market day from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
