About Us

Our farmers markets and Market-on-the-Go accept SNAP/EBT, Senior Vouchers, WIC, debit/credit card, and cash.

Lake County Eats Local is a partnership of Legacy Foundation, NWI Food Council, Purdue University Cooperative Extension, City of Gary Department of Environmental Affairs/Green Urbanism, and City of East Chicago.

Our goal is to address high rates of food insecurity and limited fresh food access in the cities of East Chicago and Gary, while supporting local farm viability.
