INDIANPOLIS, IND. – It's farmers market season in Indianapolis and now there are even more ways to buy your favorite Hoosier grown products.
“You absolutely can buy the freshest produce that Indiana has to offer. You can buy baked goods, flowers, breads, coffee and more,” said Stevi Stoesz of Indianapolis City Market.
Hoosier farmers, artisans and chefs brought out their freshest produce that comes from fields and farms around central Indiana.
“Supporting local is extremely important, there are so many local farmers and artisans and this is their craft. This is what they do,” said Ryan Thomas of FarmersMarket.com
Dozens of locals stopped by the Original Farmers Market in downtown Indianapolis, choosing to buy from local farmers like Rick Woodall of Red Barn Farms in New Castle, Indiana, who offers a wide variety of products.
“Lamb, chicken, beef, pork, turkey, eggs,” said Woodall.
As the "buy local movement" gains popularity, there are now even more easy ways to support homegrown products, like logging onto FarmersMarket.com, a new Indianapolis based company launched in January that connects you with local produce at the click of a button. The online farmers market delivers to your door in just a couple of days or you can pick up your order at the farmers market without worrying about the freshest selection being gone before you arrive.
“It is a great revolution to have. People are becoming smarter about what is in their food,” said Thomas.
The company expects to really take off this summer.
