I’m a bit of a farmers market addict. I like to visit as many markets as I can during the summer. It’s a fun time to walk around, speak with vendors, buy produce, homemade goods (breads, cupcakes, frozen casseroles, honey, pasta, pies) and other items and get a bit of cooking inspiration. Fellow shoppers perusing the Brownsburg Farmers Market. My most recent exploration led me to the Brownsburg Farmers Market. Although I had been to several of the Hendricks County farmers markets, I had never visited Brownsburg's Thursday night market. A coworker of mine who lives in Brownsburg and who is a regular farmers market attendee, told me she really enjoys the market and I needed to go. Brownsburg 5 The Brownsburg Farmers Market is held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. every Thursday. For those who may have regular weekend obligations, the Thursday night market provides a perfect option. Grab your friends and family, meet up at the market and then go out for a bite to eat afterward. Sounds like a fun evening right? Don't miss an opportunity to attend the Brownsburg Farmers Market every Thursday evening (through September 5). Hope to see you there this week! Details
