To celebrate National Farmers’ Market Week, the folks of the Zionsville Farmers Market are giving away goodies – and good deals, on Aug. 9.
According to market chairwoman Jenn Gleissner, last year the market celebrated National Farmers’ Market Week and it was a huge hit.
“We had so much fun,” Gleissner said. “And all of our vendors who had specials sold out of their products, so it really served its purpose.”
Geissner said that the market is at the “height of its season” with loads of corn and other items.
“You can pick up everything you need for dinner,” she said. “And we will also be giving out goodies from our sponsors at IU North. They will have items while supplies last.”
This year, the first 500 people at the market will receive a free spatula with the market logo on it. This comes after last year’s giveaway of vegetable scrapers.
Also, several vendors will be having sales on select items. These include:
- Sage’s Simple Syrup- This family-run business makes infused simple syrups for cocktails and mocktails. Flavors include cucumber-basil and mango-ginger. On Aug. 9 only, the company is offering $2 off any 16-ounce bottle of simple syrup.
- Inga’s Popcorn- This main-street staple company is offering $3 off any three, one-quart bags of popcorn. Customers can save $1 per bag this way.
- End of the Trail- A local Zionsville man, who breeds and cures his own bison, will be offering $1 off the second pound of bison meat, after the purchase of the first pound.
The market is open from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., in the parking lot next to The Friendly Tavern, on Main Street. For more information, visit www.zionsvillefarmersmarket.org.
