Find Produce in a Cinch at Indy Winter Farmers Market

Fall produce in Indiana is bountiful, and the Indy Winter Farmers Market is making it easily accessible.

Apples, swiss chard, squash and pumpkins were at almost every produce stand when I visited the market this weekend. Housed in the newly renovated West Wing of the Indianapolis City Market, the Indy Winter Farmers Market aims to provide a venue for Indiana’s sustainably-minded family farms and small-batch/artisan food producers to sell their products while also improving our community’s access to local, fresh, homegrown food.

Everyone at the market was welcoming. Farmers are excited to talk about their food with you, even offering recipe suggestions and pairings. While there were several produce stands, you could also pick up everything from freshly baked bread, olive oils, coffee beans and home canned goods from Indiana’s artisan vendors who must pass strict guidelines in order to be given space to sell at the market. Farmers and artisans must prove that they locally source their ingredients and use ethical and sustainable methods of harvesting and raising animals to ensure the market is providing the best quality foods.

Enjoy these pictures of the Indy Winter Farmers Market and get out to see them next week.

The 2012-2013 Indy Winter Farmers Market season is 9 am every Saturday now through April 27, 2013.
