Farmers markets are a popular place for local vendors to publicize and sell their products.

The Broad Ripple Farmers Market sells a variety of goods from different vendors, including corn from My Dad’s Sweet Corn and breakfast pizzas from Bryne’s Pizza.

One key aspect of farmers markets is socializing between vendors and customers

“I really love the people. I think you can just meet so many local farmers and supporting them is amazing. I love the folks we get to meet” salesperson Elaina Mellott said. Mellot works for Tulip Tree Creamery at the market.

 “We have some regulars who we know their orders because we just see them weekly, and it’s a really great relationship there,” Mellott said.

The Broad Ripple Farmers Market is dog-friendly. Dog owners enjoy having the space to take their dogs out and a space that allows them to socialize, which is also beneficial for vendors such as Three Dog Bakery.

“Seeing all the people and seeing some of the same dogs that come every week; it’s nice to get some little regulars and get to know the people that come to us,” Alex Moorman said. Moorman is a manager-in-training for Three Dog Bakery.

The Broad Ripple Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 8 to noon until October 1. It is located at Second Presbyterian Church, just off of South Meridian Street.
