If you live in Greenfield, Indiana, then you know that farm-fresh produce is not uncommon. Nestled close to both the Indianapolis Metro area as well as the plentiful farmlands of rural Indiana, residents of this up-and-coming community are used to eating farm-to-table goodness during the growing seasons. What you may not realize, however, is that you can keep the local produce coming all year round! Greenfield hosts a winter farmers market at the local Hancock County fairgrounds that is sure to leave you feeling connected to the land around you even during the cold and darker days.

Where can I find all of the goods?

The winter farmers market is held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the first and third Saturdays during the months of November through April. Located inside of the heated show arena at the Hancock County Fairgrounds, visitors will be happy to know that they can stay toasty warm while shopping for local goods. 

Masks are currently required as well as social distancing etiquette, and visitors are asked to stay home if they are displaying any of the hallmark COVID-19 symptoms. Preorders are available for those who would like to skip the shopping experience altogether and go straight for the local products.

Who is selling at the farmers market?

Shoppers can find yummy local goodness such as chicken, eggs, butter, cheese, maple syrup, lamb, goat, baked goods and even homemade soaps and lotions. Vendors in the winter market include: 

  • Abbott’s Garlic and Poultry
  • Blue River Natural Foods
  • Blanche Phillips
  • Daisy Hill Farm
  • Grammy’s Berry Patch
  • Joy to the World Baking
  • The Pork Shoppe
  • Udder’s-n-Suds. 

Don’t let the cold temps and blustery winter weather wreck your chance to bring home all of the local bounties from our community. Come and enjoy Greenfield’s indoor, heated farmers market today and support these great farms and local businesses run by other Hoosiers!
