7.30 petes peaches verticalLots of news this week! The most important thing to remind everyone about is that this is the last week that vendors will be handing out plastic bags and straws at the Market. Bring your reusable shopping bags and your sipping cups from home starting July 2.

  • Next up – peaches are coming! Pete’s Peaches will be with us this week with the first peaches of the season!
  • My Dad’s Sweet Corn will also be at the BRFM this week, but no sweet corn just yet – they’ll have their popcorn instead. The sweet corn is coming on July 2!
  • Anna Powell , Farm to Product (formerly Indiana Microgreens) is back this Saturday after her sabbatical in Europe. Stop by and ask her about her trip!
  • WIC (the special supplemental nutrition program for Women Infants and Children) is joining us this week and will be located next to the entertainment tent.
  • JP Parker Flowers will have the last of the peonies and the first of their sunflowers!
  • Brotgarten and The Daily Blossom are both back this Saturday!
  • The BRVA (Broad Ripple Village Association) is back again this week with racing ducks to purchase and register for the Annual Duck Race on the Canal which takes place this Sunday June 26! For more information, click here.
  • Because it’s the 4th week of the month, ARPO, Ash Blaeds, Hidden Pond Farm, Red Frazier Bison, and Trailhead Naturals are all with us this Saturday.
  • Speaking of ARPO (Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership), they will be in a different location this week, at the opposite end of the Market next to Harvest Moon Flower Farm. And they currently have a surplus of rescued kittens they have taken on in an emergency situation. They are looking for foster homes and donations to help with their care until they find new forever homes. For more information, see the “Save the Kitties!” page here.
  • And speaking of moving, Dickinson’s Custom Woodworking and Indiana Craft Jerky will be located between Fermenti Artisan and Annabelle’s Garden this Saturday.
