WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

We’ve been around for almost 30 years! The first season of the farmers market began in 1993, with just a few farmers who asked to sell ears of corn up at the courthouse. Since then, the market has grown with each passing season and now accommodates up to 40 market stalls which host a wide variety of local farmers, growers and producers of fresh bread, produce, eggs, meats, jams and jellies, raw honey, maple syrup and other homemade edible goods.

The market is also proud to support and showcase a select group of LOCAL artisans and entrepreneurs, whose unique creativity and all-natural products make the Crawfordsville Farmers Market a truly complete shopping experience! The market has expanded over the years to include themed community and family events, cooking demonstrations, fitness classes, food trucks and live music.

WE HAVE A WINTER MARKET

During the months of November through March of the next year, the Winter Market operates from the Montgomery County 4-H Fairgrounds! We typically host 6 holiday markets prior to Christmas, and then set up the first and third Saturdays January – March. Many of your favorite vendors are also found at the Winter Market, in addition to a number of unique and very creative artisans guaranteed to meet your one-of-a-kind gift giving needs! See us on social media for specific details…
