Indoor Farmers Market Debuts Today!

Fort Wayne Farmers Market Grand Opening on Oct. 6

The new, indoor Fort Wayne Farmers Market will be held at Parkview Field’s Lincoln Financial Event Center starting Saturday, October 6 at 9 a.m. The market will run on the first Saturday of each month from October 2012 to May 2013.

Over 25 local farm, food, artisans, and crafts vendors will participate in the farmers market with local produce, baked goods, with food and non-food products for sale.

Parkview Field’s chef will also be doing cooking demonstrations in the future months.

The farmers market was born to help foster entrepreneurship among local vendors and build the attitude of “Buy Local, Buy Fresh” in Fort Wayne consumers.

Some of the goals of the Fort Wayne Farmers Market is to educate consumers about healthy eating, raise consumer awareness, provide a destination point for the people of Fort Wayne, and to draw visitors of the city downtown.

A short-term goal for the farmers market is to expand from a once a month activity to a Wednesday lunch market in downtown Fort Wayne during the months of June through September. Long-term goals include finding a permanent, indoor, year-round location by working with the Public Markets Committee.
