Meet the Vendors: Neier Farms and Produce
Since 2002, Neier Farms has used organic processes to grow produce on their farm in Coatesville.  On their farm you will find greenhouses specializing in hanging baskets, planters, and over 125 cage free chickens. The produce is hand-picked by their family with the majority of it being picked the day you receive it, which allows them to sell their produce at the peak of ripeness.

You will often see a bounty of hanging flower baskets at their stand, and the entire family.  Follow them on Facebook to see some great photos of life on the farm and delicious dinners made with fresh produce right here in Hendricks County!

Food Trucks
Saint Adrians Meats and Sausage, Dizzy Izzy’s Food Truck, Chomp’z and Sweet Valley Ice Cream.

Live Music
Live music will be performed by alternative influenced singer/songwriter Chris Burch.

Happening at the Market
IU Health West Hospital will give shoppers a free reusable market bag and give out the Bushel Builder’s loyalty card. Get a sticker on your card each month to enter the grand prize drawing in September.

Children can enjoy the POP (Power of Produce) Kids Club activities organized by the Brownsburg Public Library. Each week while school is out for the summer the POP Club tent will offer fun activities designed to connect kids with fresh food and their health. SIGN UP FOR POP CLUB>>
