Indianapolis City Market
222 E. Market Street
In a world of look-alike food options, the historic Indianapolis City Market is experiencing a renaissance—one that will take you back to a time of greater community, natural food choices and preparation, and carefully crafted products that are both unique and useful.
The Indianapolis City Market’s history is as rich as the promise of its future. When opened in 1886, the market ushered in a new tradition: an open space for the sale of meats and produce. It wasn’t long before the Indianapolis City Market began to flourish as a community gathering place and one-stop shop for fresh produce, meat, fish, poultry, dairy and baked goods.
Today, as one of the National Register of Historic Places, the Indianapolis City Market is a vibrant downtown event destination! Chosen as a prime location for many special events—including Super Bowl 2012 activities—the market serves as a cornerstone for downtown Indianapolis and the Near Eastside. With a wide variety of eateries, wine and cheese shops, and retailers, the Indianapolis City Market offers you an experience that combines the best of both yesterday and today.
Visit and shop the Saturdays’ Farmers Market located in the west end of the Market. You will find farmers offering outstanding produce, dairy products, meats, fruits and vegetables which have been selected at their peak. As you fill your basket with good-tasting, healthy foods, you’ll support the local growers dedicated to providing you with the freshest foods available.
The new course is fast, flat and scenic and includes boulevards, Parkways, golf courses and the Cultural Trail from Indiana Avenue to Illinois Street.
