Markets boast freshest crops


Some sellers will help the disadvantaged. Batesville, Brookville and Greensburg vendors will be able to redeem Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program EBT benefit tokens and a few are approved to honor WIC coupons. Most Osgood vendors are WIC approved.

Each market has its own rules. In Sunman, crops “must be grown in southeastern Indiana or southwestern Ohio and be sold by the persons who produced the crops or their representatives. No bulk produce market buyers or third party vendors are permitted.” Batesville rules state vendors’ products must be Indiana grown. No “second sale” foods or crafts are allowed. In Greensburg, “we require that everything sold has a local element to it. Produce must be grown locally. Value-added items, such as jams, must use at least one locally grown ingredient,” according to Robinson.

Some growers have to pay to sell. In Batesville, “potential vendors may register for the market and pay a single season fee.” They should stop by the market master booth or call Salatin.

In Greensburg, “we do not charge vendors to set up. However, we do require that they submit an application form, which can be found on our Web site or by contacting us directly,” the executive director notes. “This year we also have a $25 co-op advertising option for vendors who wish to have their contact information, listing of their products and photo included on a flyer and vendor listing on the Web site. This information allows customers who can’t make it to the market to pre-order items from their favorite vendor and pick them up quickly.”

Brookville, Osgood and Sunman markets have no fees.
