The Star recently reported that the Indianapolis City Market is looking to open a year-round farmers market. The downtown market will open May 6 and will move indoors in October, when it usually closes. That would make the third winter's market in Indianapolis; the other two being the Indianapolis Winter Market and the Traders Point Winter Market, which is organic.
Other recent headlines state that markets are opening:
- In Morgan County: on the north side of the Morgan County Courthouse. The market is expected to open at 8 a.m. Saturdays beginning May 30 and will run through the first Saturday in October, according to the Reporter-Times.
- In Hendricks County: The Star also reports that Chateau Thomas Winery, just off of I-70, will open a market on May 7. It will run 4 to 8 p.m. Thursdays.
I'll have a rundown of area farmers market start dates soon.
