South Side Farmers Market, Fort Wayne’s oldest, continually operating farmers market, is entering into its 91st year in business. Operated by the Allen County Ag. Producers, Inc., a non-profit organization, the goal has always been to share information on the best selection and storage methods of various fresh, locally grown produce. Farmers are also happy to share methods of preparing produce, as well as favorite recipes.

The 2017 season begins April 1st through December 16th. Every Saturday, from 7:00 a.m. until 1 p.m., various vendors and local growers bring their goods to the market for eager patrons to purchase. Fresh, locally grown produce continues to be the biggest attraction, but hormone-free pork and poultry and fresh eggs have been available year-round for the past couple of years.

South Side Farmers Market patrons can also find a large variety of home-baked goods, seasonal plants for their own gardens, flowers, artwork, crafts, jewelry, antiques, books, and flea-market finds aplenty. There is also a counter serving breakfast and lunch for hungry shoppers. Live music is generally performed between 9:00 a.m. to 11 a.m.   

Located in the 3300 block of Warsaw St., between Oxford and Pontiac, the South-Central area of town has long been familiar with many charms of the farmers market and what a fun, friendly place it is. A large, free parking lot is located off of Dalman Ave., where a handicap-accessible door to the market is located.

There are generally stands available for rent, at the rate of $20 per market. If interested, contact Brenda Woznick or Bud Giant at stand #53, or call 260-456-8225 for more information.

Woodburn, IN 46797
Description:

Saturday, April 1, 10 am, Enjoy wildflowers along a flat hike to bluffs over the Maumee River. Blue Cast Springs protects over 3,000 feet of the Maumee River bank and is the site of a natural spring once thought to have healthful properties. Bluffs 30-feet high offer vistas of the river, one of its islands and an active Great Blue Heron Rookery. Native Americans likely used these bluffs to overlook the river’s canoe traffic. A number of ravines running through the upland forest feed into the river. Last April, in celebration of Indiana’s Bicentennial, volunteers helped to plant more than 20,000 native hardwood trees at Blue Cast Springs, reforesting 36 acres. Check on this new growth as you trek alongside the formerly farmed field into the established forest. Bring your camera, your friends and your sense of adventure! Local historian, Tom Castaldi shares some of Blue Cast Springs’ incredible history on our blog. Read more Blue Cast Spring stories. https://www.acreslandtrust.org/tag/blue-cast-springs/.
