Farmers market season starts in June

Farmers Markets + Market-on-the-Go

We are excited to announce the Lake County Eats Local summer farmers markets and Market-on-the-Go. This program is made possible by the USDA FMPP grant program. Partners on this grant include Legacy Foundation, NWI Food Council, Purdue Extension Lake County, and City of Gary Department of Green Urbanism.

The markets will run over a 16-week period beginning in June, with the Market-on-the-Go continuing 3 to 4 times a week throughout the year, alternating market sites between the cities of Gary and East Chicago.

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