Vendor News and Notes

Be sure you don’t overlook our vendors located in the center of the Market. Coffee, flowers, composting, and this week, blade sharpening (next week salmon), can be found there.

Lick Ice Cream and Trailhead Naturals are back after being out last week. Byrne’s Grilled Pizza is out again this week as is 3-in-1 Restaurant — both due to staffing issues. (If anyone is looking for a part-time job you might contact them. Several other vendors, including Tulip Tree Creamery, are actively hiring as well.) Farm to Product, Russell Sheep Co. and Nicey Treat are also out this Saturday.

For the regular schedules of all our vendors at the Market, see our Summer Vendor List.

The Duck Race is coming up next week. Stop by the BRVA booth and get your ducks for a chance to win great prizes. Plus, volunteer to help out with the event. Also look for Penrod Art Fair selling discount tickets at the BRVA booth.

FRESH CUT FLOWERS AT THE MARKET:

Creative Bouquets

Harvest Moon Flower Farm has been with the BRFM year-round since 2012. The farm grows over 100 varieties of flowers and plants that give their bouquets, filled with texture and color, a unique look.  Owner/grower Linda Chapman prides herself on the amazingly long vase-life of her offerings. She also does beautiful seasonal wreaths and swags. Find them at the Market every Saturday.

 

Seasonal Stems

Inspired by the gardens on her grandfather’s farm, Pam Parker of JP Parker Flowers, developed a lifelong passion for horticulture. Today, Pam and her husband own that farm, where they and their crew produce an annual crop of over 20,000 peony stems and 300,000 sunflowers, along with smaller amounts of other flowers, for sale to florists, and to you at the Market in season.

 

Natural Beauty

Nancy Barton’s summer job (a professor at IUPUI), is growing chemical-free native flowers, herbs, and vegetable plants cultivated at her home in Rocky Ripple. She and a friend started selling flowers downtown back in 1986 and Nancy has been with the BRFM as The Daily Blossom since 1996 when we first started. Market customers love her modestly sized natural bouquets.
