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.
