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 2020 Original Farmers' Market will resume on June 10th from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monument Circle and will continue every Wednesday until the end of October.

The Original Farmers' Market runs every Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., May through October on the Southeast Quadrant of Monument Circle.

 
New Guidelines for 2020 Market Season

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indianapolis City Market is taking additional measures to ensure the safety of vendors, staff, and guests.  

  • Please adhering to social distancing recommendations when shopping at the farmers market by following marked space indicators which will be marked in front of vendor's booths. 
  • Guests are required to bring and wear their own masks and utilize the marked handwashing stations that will be found throughout the street. 
  • Service animals will be the only pets allowed at the market. 
  • Guests are encouraged to pre-pay and pre-order with individual vendors as much as possible. 
  • Please refrain from consuming food or beverages on-site. 
  • If possible, families are encouraged to send one family representative to the market to avoid accumulating larger groups of people while visiting the market.

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 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; a little under 3,000 lbs of fresh Indiana grown produce was gleaned throughout the 2018 Original Farmers’ Market season.

Live entertainment is temporarily suspended from the Original Farmers' Market.
