Get your farm fix in the off-season. Since 2008, the Indy Winter Farmers Market has provided Downtown residents with a direct source of local produce and goods during the winter months.

The Farmers Market starts on Saturday, November 9, 2019, and runs every Saturday through April 25, 2020, from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the Circle City Industrial Complex (1125 E Brookside Ave). The Indy Winter Farmers Market is one of the longest-running winter markets in the state of Indiana.

We believe everyone in our community should have access to local and fresh foods. Our market continues to be the only farmers market in the state to offer triple-match dollars for SNAP (The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), ensuring the market is an accessible place to shop for all members of the community.

The triple-match SNAP allows shoppers to use, $20 of their benefits to get an additional $40, ending up with a total of $60 to spend at the market.

At the market, you will find some of the best in local produce farmers, artisan food producers, including sustainably raised meats and dairy products, unique baked goods, preserved and fermented foods, and much more. Bring the whole family and enjoy breakfast in the cafe area, listen to live music, and let your kiddies play in the new and improved Lil’ Sprouts area.
