It’s that time again…
The KDFM will be even bigger and better than ever during the 2016 season! If you’ve always wondered whether being part of our vendor family is right for you, now is the time to apply and find out. It’s natural to have a lot of questions about a new endeavor, so we’re hosting a Prospective Vendor Meeting at the Chamber of Commerce at 325 N, Main Street in downtown Kokomo on Thursday, March 24, at 5:30 pm. Come meet a few of our veteran vendors and get the answers you need. Applications are always accepted, but priority is given to those submitted by April 2, 2016.
The finest in fresh, local food!
The Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market offers the finest in local food and a feast for the senses! Smell fresh baked breads and cookies, see the vibrant colors of harvest, taste the difference fresh produce makes, hear the sounds of local musicians, and feel the craftsmanship our makers put into their work.
At our producers’ market, you can talk to the farmers and bakers who grew, raised or made your food and ask questions about your purchases straight from the source! Our vendors are proud of what they do and love to talk about their work and share recipes, organic gardening tips, and information on the benefits of eating fresh, local, free range foods. Feel free to ask your favorite vendor questions like…
- Do you grow organically?
- What kind of fertilizer do you use?
- What is your favorite recipe for this vegetable?
- Are your products vegan or gluten free?
The same goes with our amazing makers! They sell only what they have made themselves and you can often find them practicing and demonstrating their art at the market. Interested in learning about woodworking, throwing pottery or making soap? Ask one of our makers! They’ll be happy to share a little bit about their craft with you.
Every Saturday is different and new with a dynamic line up of vendors, incredible entertainment, and valuable educational workshops and activities for kids and adults. Check our calendar of events often for more details about each week’s activities. The market is open rain or shine. We will accept credit cards, but if you prefer cash, please remember ones. Don’t forget your reusable bags to carry purchases. The Market will be accepting SNAP as well as WIC and SFMNP vouchers this season.
The Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market is sponsored by Ivy Tech Community College, First Farmers Bank and Trust, St. Vincent Hospital, Howard County, and the City of Kokomo and is in partnership with the Kokomo Downtown Association and the Greater Kokomo Economic Development Alliance.
