Although it has been a wet start in much of the state, spring is in full swing throughout Indiana with summer just a few weeks away. I love this time of year, because so many events and activities take place, ranging from county fairs to farmers markets opening for the season.
I recently had the opportunity to attend opening day of the Original Farmers’ Market, which is located just outside The City Market in downtown Indianapolis.
Farmers markets, in general, are one of my favorite things to attend, whether I am doing a story or just visiting with my children and perusing the different goods and produce the vendors have to offer.
Although I attended the first day of the Original Farmers’ Market, when some of the produce vendors don’t have their full array of summer fruits and vegetables, because they aren’t in season yet, there still were dozens of products that were grown or made in Indiana for sale.
I enjoyed stopping at the different vendors’ booths and seeing the local products they had on display. One of my favorite things to look at was all the fresh-cut flowers and bouquets that vendors were offering.
After I was done gazing at the flowers and taking what seemed like a hundred photos of them, I began to people watch, which is one of my favorite pastimes.
It brought great joy to me to watch dozens of customers browse the different booths and witness the agriculture industry at its finest.
I can’t wait until I can return to the Original Farmers’ Market later in the season and see all the fresh vegetables, produce and plants for sale.
