Indianapolis Winter Farmers Market
January 7, 2012 § Leave a Comment
Naturally I love farmers markets because of all the colors and the people and fresh goods for sale. I mean, did you know there are farmers and food vendors who actually grow and produce stuff within 50 miles of Indy, instead of you know, California or Venezuela or wherever? It’s pretty awesome how much better spinach from 25 miles away tastes than spinach from 1000 miles away.
Of course there are all the environmental benefits of less transportation costs and “supporting local economy” and all that, which are rad, don’t get me wrong. But really, how much we enjoy putting it in our faces is what we’re here for. The other stuff is just added bonus. Like, loving to ride your bike, and the added bonus is you’re not fat.
Here is a small sampling of just some of what’s available at the Winter Farmers Market. And here’s a link to a list of all the vendors.
We snagged some fresh spinach and carrots, some jowl bacon from the Smoking Goose (you can expect a post on this later this week), some tomato/basil/garlic pasta, and Britt found some pretty tasty vegan chocolate-cashew bon bons or buckeyes or whatever they’re called.
Until next time, Market. Next time.
