To find vendor locations at the Market, check the Vendor Map each week in this newsletter or scan the Vendor Map QR Code at the entrance to the market. The QR Code will take you to the Vendor Map on our website.
Remember to bring CASH in order to purchase from the few vendors who don’t take credit cards (Johnnie Raber Family Farm, Norman Mullet Farm, and Phelps Family Farm).
Lost & Found items are turned in to the BRFM Information Tent – be sure to check there if you’ve lost something (coffee mugs, wallets, sunglasses) at the Market.
WHAT’S COOKING: Plentiful Peppers
You may have noticed an abundance of peppers, both hot and sweet, at the Market. Stock up on them now and you’ll have myriad ways to add sunshine to your meals all winter long. Freeze them, dry them, or roast them for fresh salsas. Saute them or chop them and use them to perk up any dish you as you wish.
MUSICAL GUEST NORTH: Patrick McBride
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.
MUSICAL GUEST SOUTH: NEW – Nautilus
Nautilus is a fusion rock band that specializes in jamming/funk. They play everything from classic rock to bluegrass to jazz. You may have seen/heard them at First Friday festivities around Indianapolis.
Our musicians volunteer to perform at the Market, so tips are much appreciated!
