Be Indypendent

By supporting the City Market, you are not only supporting a large piece of history of the city, but you are also supporting your fellow Hoosiers. Whether you stop in on your lunch break for something quick or you hit the Farmers’ market every Wednesday, you are supporting something much bigger than you realize. The City Market is not just any market, it is a piece of Indiana’s young history that stands as a national landmark constantly reminding us to Get Fresh. Be Indypendent. Buy Local.

An INDYpendent EVENT

The addition of the Indy Arts Market on Saturdays expands the City Market from a fresh food market to a music and art venue. Lining the Whistler Plaza, local artists will have the opportunity to display and sell their artwork in a location walking distance from Monument Circle and Mass Avenue while local musicians entertain. Make your work available to the masses by participating in the Indy Arts Market. Being a part of the Indy Arts Market allows you to be part of a ground breaking new tradition at the City Market.

The City Market is one of only five original Public Market Houses in the United States and is among only a handful of original 19th Century Market Houses left. The towering brick walls, expansive iron trusses, arched windows, and patina copper roof make it a work of art in itself. The historical national landmark represents over 100 years of Indianapolis tradition that makes it a centerpiece of Indianapolis life.

With all the up and coming revitalized areas in Indianapolis, you must consider the City Market just as important as Monument Circle, Mass Ave, and Fountain Square. The historical aspects of Indianapolis are what make it such a great pull to tourists and locals. When you support the City Market, you support Indianapolis. Local farmers, vendors, musicians, and artists are the people who make the City Market possible. By participating in the City Market, you have the opportunity to be a part of one of the city’s oldest and most prized institutions.

Join in on the fun and encourage others to support you at the City Market. Encourage fellow Hoosiers to Get Fresh. Be Indypendent. Buy Local.
