The Brownsburg market, which is presented by IU Health West Hospital and the Town of Brownsburg, features a variety of honey, herbs, handcrafted soaps, artisan breads, and fresh produce.
According to information on the town’s website, vendors include The Bakery Shop, My Hunny’s Honey, BFE Trading Post, Weber Farms, Red Robin Farm, and The Old MG Bed and Breakfast.
One new aspect this year is the non-profit row, which features local organizations that add value to the market’s mission of supporting local farmers and home-based vendors that offer a variety of quality products and informational materials.
Per the website, the market is now approved by the State of Indiana’s WIC Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program. The program allows lower-income families who receive WIC benefits the opportunity to purchase the locally grown products with vouchers.
Additionally, the market is working with the Hendricks County Health Partnership Obesity Work Group, which helps area food pantries stock up while cutting waste from vendors. On a weekly basis, participating vendors will have the option to donate any fresh items left after the market closes. Donations will also be accepted from patrons of the market.
