August 5 – First Saturday in August

  • This is the last week for Driving Wind Berry Farm. Get fresh local berries from their booth this Saturday and visit their U-Pick farm on Michigan Rd. throughout the season.
  • Tulip Tree Creamery has named Nettle their Cheese of the Month for August. Bright, herby, and creamy. Get some this week!
  • The Indianapolis Office of Sustainability will have a booth at the Market this Saturday with information about recycling, anti-littering campaign, Knozone, grant programs, EVs, and more.
  • Next week, August 6-13 is National Farmers Market Week! Make a plan to bring the whole crew, shop local, get breakfast, and listen to live music to start your Saturday morning with us! Check next week’s newsletter for more details.
  • If you’ve lost something (coffee mugs, wallets, sunglasses) at the Market, be sure to ask at the Information Booth for Lost & Found. Items are usually turned in there.


  • Farmer’s Sassy Sauce, Turchetti’s and U-Relish are out this week.
  • Filigree Bakery and Rebecca’s Best are both with us off-schedule this Saturday.

WHAT’S COOKING: It’s All Greek to Me!

At the peak of the summer produce season, everything you need for a fabulous Greek meal is available at the Market. Make a delicious lamb dish, beautiful roasted vegetables, and a simple fresh salad. Then pretend you’re vacationing on a sunny Greek island and enjoy!
Get the recipes.



Whobilados play a mix of traditional tunes and originals blending multi-part vocals, with varied instruments, for their listenable music.  Let them entertain you while you linger over breakfast and coffee at the Market.


Enjoy music by Pat McBride this week. Pat brings us folk rock originals along with standards and 60s favorites. He’s always popular at the Market.  Come listen to him sing and play while you browse the booths.

Our musicians volunteer to perform at the Market, so tips are much appreciated!
