Original Farmers’ Market

THE ORIGINAL FARMERS' MARKET

Perfectly situated in the heart of the Midwest, Indianapolis is ripe with farmers offering outstanding produce, dairy products, meats, and more! Through the Original Farmers' Market we bring them straight to you at the Indianapolis City Market. From fruits and vegetables and meats and cheeses, to baked goods and unique spices and herbs, you can find in-season, fresh foods that have been selected at their peak. As you fill your basket with good-tasting, healthy foods, you'll support the local growers dedicated to providing you with the freshest foods available.

The Original Farmers' Market runs every Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., May through October.

 

Dollar-For-Dollar Matching: Fresh Bucks & SNAP

For those who utilize SNAP benefits, you will be able to once again double your spending up to $20 through the Fresh Bucks program. SNAP users can utilize this program to buy fruits, vegetables, honey, herbs and spices, maple syrup, and seedlings for edible plants. The program’s expansion in 2015 was made possible by a Specialty Crop Block Grant awarded by the Indiana State Department of Agriculture in 2014.

Programs and Activities

The gleaning foods program Buy 2 Give 1, administered through the Original Farmers’ Market, encourages individuals to buy additional products for those who are in need of fresh, healthy products. All of the donations are made at the City Market tent (located in front of the City Market House’s Market Street doors) during the Original Farmers’ Market hours, and are given to one of three downtown homeless missions to prepare healthy meals for those in need. Each year, thousands of pounds of produce are given to those who need it most through the gleaning foods program; approximately 4,300 pounds of produce was gleaned throughout the 2017 Original Farmers’ Market season.

Farmers’ Market Music – 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.
