Farmers market opens at new location

May 18, 2017

The farmers market in Downtown Evansville opens for business Friday at a new location.

The Indiana Farm Bureau is sponsoring the market, which in recent years has been held next to the old Greyhound bus station – now a Bru Burger restaurant.

An environmental study is being conducted on that land, so the city is providing another parcel for the weekly event – just south of the Lloyd Expressway-First Avenue intersection.

Evansville Metro Development Director Kelley Coures tells WNIN the new location should be an improvement.

He says participants are exited about the new spot.

Crews have installed an asphalt strip on the property to allow access for vendors. A tent has also been erected.

The farmers market is planned for each Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through September.
