    June 01, 2017 No comments

    Brownsburg – Shoppers will enjoy locally grown produce, eggs and meat, artisan baked goods, handcrafted items and more when the Brownsburg Farmers Market presented by IU Health West Hospital returns to the Town Hall Green this summer. Voted as the “Best of Hendricks County” four years running, the market is open 4 to 7 p.m. Thursdays, June 1 through September 7.

    The Brownsburg Farmers Market is WIC and SNAP certified. Families who receive WIC nutrition program or SNAP benefits can purchase healthy and locally-produced fresh items with their vouchers. A partnership with Fresh Bucks allows SNAP participants to double their benefits up to $20 on produce at the market.  Several vendors also participate in WIC and the new Hendricks County WIC incentive program called Double Up Produce doubles WIC benefits up to $50 for produce purchases.

    More than 50 vendors are registered for the 2017 market.  Food trucks and live acoustic music return as weekly features. New this year is the POP (Power of Produce) Kids Club. Brownsburg Parks, Brownsburg Public Library and IU Health West will host fun activities designed to connect kids with fresh food and their health. Check Facebook.com/BrownsburgFarmersMarket for details.

    A weekly e-news keeps shoppers informed about vendors, special events and more going on at each market. Sign up at www.brownsburg.org/newslettersignup.
