Interested Vendors:

We work hard to ensure that vendors have a wonderful experience participating in the Brownsburg Farmers Market presented by IU Health West Hospital.  More than 40 vendors each week participated in the 2019 market.

The Brownsburg Farmers Market seeks vendors that are the growers/producers of the products sold at the market and are located within a 30 mile radius of Brownsburg. Please read the entire vendor policy before applying to ensure you fall under the guidelines to sell at the Brownsburg Farmers Market.

Questions? Any questions can be directed to the Events Coordinator with the Town of Brownsburg for more information by email or phone at 317-858-6069.
