Greenwood Farmers Market on the rise

The Greenwood Farmers Market has been one of southside Indianapolis’ little-known secrets. In an area sprinkled with farms stands, the market doesn’t have the name recognition of others in the metro: Broad Ripple, Traders Point, Carmel or Fishers. Even nearby Franklin seems to have greater name recognition.

The Greenwood Farmers market is small but diverse. You’ll find a range of produce, handmade soaps and other goods, even a cooking ministry of a local church. But oddly enough, in the three years, I’ve attended there, it doesn’t feel like there’s a lot of foot traffic.

Until this weekend. Friday’s Indianapolis Star featured the Greenwood Market, and things just weren’t the same. Saturday morning, there were more vendors, more shoppers, more variety.
I hope it’s a positive sign of things to come.
