We're so excited for the start of another great Farmers Market season in Morgan County! The Morgan County Farmers Market Association will officially kick off their 2024 season the first full week of May. If you ask us, farmers markets are one of the very best things about the warmer months in the Midwest. Some of our favorite things about the local farmers markets are the opportunity to learn about where your food comes from, meet the people who grow or produce your favorite foods, finding unique locally made arts and crafts items, and of course, just the enjoyment of browsing through booths and mingling with others from the local community, not to mention occasional live entertainment as well. 

Seasonal Produce

At the farmers market you'll find all the normal staples as they ripen - spring greens and asparagus in the early weeks, then strawberries. tomatoes, corn and zucchini at the height of summer, which give way to pumpkins, apples and mums at the close of the season. Part of attending the local farmers market is enjoying the natural rhythms of the changing seasons as different produce becomes available throughout the run of the market.

Market Dates & Times

You can find the local Morgan County Farmers Market twice a week, beginning the first full week of May through the end of September. On Tuesdays, the market is open from 3 to 6 pm outside the Mooresville Friends Church, located at the intersection of Main Street and North Monroe Street (also Indiana State Road 267). On Saturdays, the Market can be found right on Main Street in Martinsville, on the grounds of The Main Connection at 460 S. Main Street. Vendors set up on the northeast side of the building from 9 am to 1 pm, and Sara's Goodies, a locally-owned bakery and coffee bar, will be open inside the building during market hours. The Main Connection is also home to the Morgan County Visitors Center, so be sure to pick up local and statewide visitor information while you're there!

Local Vendors

Vendors at the Morgan County Farmers Market offer more than just fresh veggies - you'll also find handmade items like jewelry and textiles, locally made soaps, a variety of baked goods, and more! Locally raised meats (pork, chicken and beef) are often available at the market, as well as eggs from happy local chickens, and sometimes ducks, too. Keep an eye on the growing season to predict the types of produce to expect at the market. The first few markets of the season are also a great opportunity for purchasing bedding plants if you'd like to try your hand at growing some of your own produce at home.

 A variety of handmade artisan items are available at the Morgan County Farmers Market.

Entertainment & Kids Activities

The Saturday Market in Martinsville sometimes also includes entertainment - you might encounter local musicians, visual artists at work or special kids' activities!  Be sure to keep an eye on the Morgan County Farmers Market page on Facebook for regular updates about available products and upcoming events as the season goes on, as well as occasional vendor profile so you know more about the area farmers that make the market possible. If you're local and will be at the Market throughout the season, check out their Sprouts Market Club! It's open to kids ages 4-12 and meets five times throughout the season, covering a different topic each time, but participants are expected to be at each monthly session.

Don't forget to explore the rest of downtown Martinsville while you're in town for the Market - the Saturday Farmers Market is just a few blocks south of the courthouse square in Martinsville, making it the perfect opportunity to explore the historic downtown district. Stop in before you head to the market at Come N' Git It Diner for a big 'ole country breakfast, or Urban Brew for a croffle and coffee. If breakfast isn't your thing, enjoy a leisurely lunch after visiting the market at your choice of 21 North Eatery & Cellar, Gather Around BBQ, Greeks Pizzeria, Awnie's, or Los Reyes. Don't forget dessert - the Martinsville Candy Kitchen has everyone's favorite candy, plus two dozen flavors of hand dipped ice cream, floats and the best vanilla cokes around!

Be sure to stop in and say hi at area shops and boutiques as well, but be warned, at each of these stops, you're almost sure to see something you need to take home with you... 



As the leaves start to change colors, don't despair - there are loads of fall festivals and craft fairs to keep you busy throughout the fall. Stay tuned for more information as the seasons change, and be sure to mark that calendar for December 14 - that'll be the date of the 2024 Holiday Market, which is also a stop on the annual Martinsville Cookie Stroll!
