Fresh, local foods for sale at fair: Check out Indiana Grown Marketplace

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Grown Marketplace is a one-stop shop for fairgoers to buy locally made foods and goods this year.

More than 75 Indiana Grown members are selling their fares inside the Purdue Extension Ag/Hort Building.

“The Indiana Grown Marketplace is one of my favorite stops at the Indiana State Fair,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch.

“Not only can I find Hoosier-made products, but I can also try new products and occasionally meet the makers themselves who are roaming the store. The store isn’t just a place to shop, it is an experience.”

The State Fair runs through Aug. 22 and is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
