During December and throughout the rest of winter, there’ll still be opportunities to shop for fresh produce, meats and other locally produced food and craft items at local farmers’ markets. Fortunately, these are indoor markets and will be held rain, shine or snow.
The Binford Farmers’ Market Indoor Holiday Market will be held Saturdays through December 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hawthorn Plaza on the near northeast side of Indianapolis. Look for vendors offering food items and baked goods, candles, body products, handmade gifts and more.
Shop the Carmel Winter Farmers’ Market from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays through mid-March, in the underground parking garage at the Indiana Design Center. There’ll be over 30 vendors, selling locally produced foods such as herbs, vegetables, fruits, plants, meats, honey and wine.
At the downtown Indy Winter Farmers’ Market located in the City Market, shop from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. through April. Farmers and producers showcase fresh foods, baked goods, herbs and a variety of products.
