Northwest Indiana's Producer Only Farmers Market
Wednesdays, April 20 - November 2
Our mission: To promote the development of a local sustainable food system.
Coffee Creek Farmers Market is in its seventh year of operation. We pride ourselves on being the first 'Producer Only' farmers market in Porter County and sole market in all of NWI to have such standards. That means that ALL vendors grow, make, produce, and create the products for sale. Vendors include local farmers, specialty food producers, food trucks, and artisans.
We do have exceptions, such as local fruit and sweet corn,
in which case the item will include the farm of origin.
The 'Producer Only' model is important to small local businesses because the true cost of production is often significantly different compared to 'big box style businesses'. Think of a small local coffee shop compared to Dunkin' Donuts. By only accepting 'Producers' we create a more appropriate retail setting for our local community Farmers Market.
