Our Hoosier state is slowly and safely opening back up. As of a few weeks ago, that includes our favorite place to shop for garden flowers, Indiana corn, home-baked goodies, honey, jams, and fresh organic produce.

That’s right, your local farmers markets are back open and going strong – giving local farmers, food producers and artisans a place to sell their goods directly to customers. And customers get access to fresh local food and home made yummies.

It’s also a lot of fun to walk around in the sun and grab anything from fresh churned ice cream for the kids and dog biscuits for Fido, to pork tenderloin sandwiches for Mom and Dad. That’s in addition to a bountiful supply of locally grown, farm fresh veggies and fruits. Yum!
