Market Preview September 18 & 21--Customer Appreciation Day!!!



It's finally here, our annual Customer Appreciation Day is this Saturday, September 21 from 9-noon!! We will have live music from the local band Coastal Remedy, sure to be a crowd pleaser! The YMCA will have a tent full of children's activities and the Home Made Ice Cream truck will make a special appearance for Saturday's festivities.  There will be a tomato taste testing station where you'll be able to sample some of the finest, freshest, and most interesting tomatoes around from our vendors 3 Ponds Farm, Mountain View Acres, & Yarnicks.  At that tomato booth you'll also be able to grab some special "I Support My Farmers' Market" gear.  We will also be giving away hot-off-the-press Indiana County Farmers' Market reusable totes (until they run out)!  Be sure to sign-up for your chance to win a basket full of goodies from all of our market vendors while you're at the market Saturday. We will call the winning name around 11 AM!  All of those special activities are an added addition to our normal Saturday market vendors.  Be sure to bring the whole family and a group of friends to the market to enjoy a day for YOU our loyal customers!!!!!!
And mark your calendar for next week's market when Indiana Community Garden will be pairing with Cozy Corner Cafe for a surprise salsa fundraiser!
*Note, October 2 is our LAST Wednesday market, and there will be NO market on Saturday, October 5 due to the homecoming parade.  Saturday markets will continue the following weeks (October 12, 19, 26) with limited vendors.  Thank you for your continual support, and see you at our Customer Appreciation Day!
