North Church Farmers Market Now Open

North United Methodist Church has launched its Thursday market from 4-6:30 p.m at 3808 N. Meridian Street. Market dates are July 15 & 29; August 5 & 19; and September 2 & 16. Fresh fruits and vegetables will be available for purchase.

The goals of the market are to bring fresh produce into an Indianapolis food desert area, support Indiana farmers, and provide a community activity for the neighborhood.

As part of the food access goal, the market participates in the Farmers Market Nutrition Program and accepts vouchers from the WIC and SNAP programs. It also provides locally grown food, educational information, and health screenings.
