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.
Compost at the Market
You may have noticed a new face and a new sign at the trash/ recycle/compost booth at the Market. Indy Go Green is a curbside pick-up service turning residential food scraps, and other organic waste, into nutrient-rich compost. Stop by the booth and talk with owner/ operator Audra Boarman, or find out more at the Indy Go Green website.
WHAT’S COOKING: OctoberFest Feast
Fermented foods are excellent for your digestive system, and some of the oldest and most basic in every food culture are cabbage-based. For those of us with German heritage, that means Sauerkraut. And this is the easiest way I know to make truly delicious kraut with tender succulent sausages for your own fabulous OctoberFest feast!

MUSICAL GUEST NORTH: Todd Andrew Ballard
Todd Andrew Ballard is a singer/ songwriter based in Indianapolis, who combines folk, rock, blues, and country to produce a melodic style all his own. His music is influenced by the likes of JJ Cale, John Fogerty, and Jason Isbell.
MUSICAL GUEST SOUTH: Mark Proctor
Mark Proctor (of Proctor & Strunk) will perform solo this Saturday. He plays a variety of folk, country, bluegrass, and light rock covers as well as originals. He and Kevin Strunk are always a big hit, but with Kevin unavailable this week, Mark is more than capable of taking over.
Our musicians volunteer to perform at the Market, so tips are much appreciated!
