Anderson City Market debuts Saturday

ANDERSON — Fresh and local lands right downtown in Anderson this Saturday with the debut of the weekly Anderson City Market.

Look for local produce and handmade wares in booths set up in Athletic Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It’s an opportunity to eat a little healthier and enjoy some shopping while supporting local entrepreneurs and the community.

“People in the community are genuinely excited about it,” said Jody Townsend. She and Brad Land are co-directors of the new market, and both of them exude an optimistic energy about the new endeavor.

Townsend is an Anderson area real estate broker who serves on the city’s beautification team. Land serves as street commissioner for the City of Anderson. They teamed up to organize the project that’s been in the works for several months.

“It’s a positive idea for a positive goal,” said Land.

The market was timed to launch when produce is starting to roll in. Townsend said visitors can expect a number of local produce vendors bringing the freshest fruits and vegetables available. Right now, that’s likely to include berries, greens, beets, radishes, zucchini and more.

“Within about four weeks, the produce is really going to be popping,” said Townsend. The market will be the place to be if you’re looking for those heirloom tomatoes and all the other bounty that Central Indiana soil and sunshine make possible.

In addition, the market has attracted a number of vendors bringing their unique, locally handmade items. The offerings run the gamut from MUGS fresh ground coffee and gourmet teas to Red Banana Designs’ vintage aprons.

“We’re going to have a variety down there. I think it’s going to be pretty cool,” said Townsend. “I’m excited about all of them. “

Dickinson Custom Furniture will be selling handmade kitchen utensils made of native Indiana hardwoods. “They are beautiful… very impressive,” said Townsend.

  • Bailey, Jim mug Jim Bailey: Wages were much less back then, but so were prices If you have any questions about what economists mean by inflation, just look at yesterday’s buying power. Those old western movies talked about wages of $1 a day. That wouldn’t even buy a burger at a fast food joint today by the time sales tax is added in.
