Opening Day, Saturday, June 6!!!

Well it is finally here, Saturday, June 6th from 9am-noon, opening day for the 2015 Indiana County Farmers' Market, 8th and Church Street in downtown Indiana!  Opening day will bring familiar faces of well loved vendors as well as faces of new vendors bringing a variety of new products and goods to our market!
Our farmers have been busy preparing for opening day, washing lettuce, keeping kale cool, digging up radishes, and finding those perfectly red, ripe strawberries just for you, our valued customer!! With the beginning of market brings the season for numerous products like salad greens, root vegetables (carrots, radishes, beets), strawberries, herbs, and maybe even an early tomato or two! It's been a long and very cold winter here in Indiana and we are sure you're taste buds are ready for some fresh picked, right out the soil produce, and we are ready to sell them to you!
Along with all of our vendors (the whole list can be found on our VENDOR page), we will also have Yoga in our Kid's Tent, lead by Ed Stancombe of Sunflower Yoga Studios (adults are welcome to join, yoga is for everyone!), and new to our Community Tent we welcome Wise Women Natural Health Collective.

We wanted to remind everyone, while we at the Farmers' Market are very fond of pets of all kinds, due to PA Dept of Ag regulations no pets are permitted at the market. If you do bring a pet, please tie them up outside of the market, sorry for any inconvenience!!

We cannot wait for our first day and are even more excited to see all of our old familiar customers and new first time market visitors.  So bring a friend, bring your family, do some yoga, buy some of the freshest local goods around, and come on out to our opening day!!
