April 7, 2021
As farmers markets begin to open for the season, there’s a big change for one of the most popular stands. After having been indoors at Parkview Field all winter, Fort Wayne’s Farmers Market heads outdoors this spring to a new location at McCulloch Park on Broadway near the Electric Works facility.
Starting May 15, the market will offer its usual mix of fresh produce, flowers, plants, and other treats while being able to spread out a bit more. In fact, there’s room for entertainment now, and the market’s website (ftwaynesfarmersmarket.com) has a call out for musicians and entertainers who would like to be part of the action this spring and summer. The market hours will continue to be 9 a.m.-1 p.m. as they continue to expand its offerings.
