I recently went to the Fishers Farmers’ Market for the very first time, and I am so glad I did! I instantly became a fan when I realized just how many great vendors there are. It was such a fun way to shop for our groceries all while supporting local small businesses.

The Fishers Farmers’ Market runs from 8:00 am until noon every Saturday through September 25th. It features a variety of vendors including local farmers, producers, makers and growers. I couldn’t get over the variety of things you can find there. You can easily make a morning of it and pick up some breakfast while you are there shopping. We started out with some coffee from Indie Coffee Roasters and tea from Rare Brew, and then made our way around the different booths.

We also saw a gluten-free bakery, homemade salsas, jams, ciders, pet treats, and more.
