Today, the City Market offers patrons an experience that combines the best of both yesterday and today with a wide variety of eateries, retailers, coffee, barbershop and an all Indiana craft beer bar with many merchants offering delivery services. This year the Indianapolis City Market hosts the 25th Annual Original Farmer’s Market running May through October 2021. The Indianapolis City Market Catacombs tours in partnership with Indiana Landmarks runs May through October.
