Since 2004 the Fishers Farmers Market has been drawing a crowd every Saturday morning during its summer running period. While the number of visitors and vendors has increased over the years, the market is sure to grow even more popular as it welcomes Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness to the city market.
The mayor will be setting up his own booth to interact with the public during the market hours, but this won’t be his first trip to the weekly event.
“The mayor actually comes to the market almost every Saturday with his family, but this is actually the first time that he will actually put up a booth and host a meet and greet to the public,” said Carol Doehrman, OneZone Events Coordinator.
“Beyond the fact it has a great food, when I walk around and see the residents and families interacting it energizes me,” Fadness said. “I think it’s a key ingredient in building a sense of community here in our city.”
This unique opportunity will offer residents a great chance to meet and greet with the mayor while enjoying the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays.
“I thinks it’s a great community event where you get to see a variety of Fishers residents,” Fadness said. “I hope it gives me an opportunity to be more accessible to our residents and it gives me a great opportunity to listen and learn from residents of Fishers.”
Mayor Fadness is set to have his booth set up on July 18, Aug. 22 and Sept. 26.
