This Saturday, June 17, there will be an AAU District Track and Field Qualifying event at Broad Ripple Magnet High School. You may wonder how that will impact the Saturday Market.

First of all, our vendors at the extreme south end of the Market will be moved to other locations, so you may have to do a little searching for your favorite vendor or stop at the information booth to ask. This only impacts 4-5 booths.

Second, there is bound to be more traffic and activity than usual, but the school has been very understanding and helpful here. They have asked the parents of the athletes to drop their students off and then exit the parking lot and park on surrounding streets.

This of course means that there will be some congestion, so please drive slowly, and use caution. The event should not reduce parking in the lot adjacent to the Market.

As part of the community, the High School and our Market have a wonderful working relationship. With a little patience, this Saturday will go smoothly for everyone.
