Vendors are so excited for the 2021 Market Season to begin.  Opening day will be on Saturday, May 22. The Market opens at 9:00 am and runs until 12:30 pm every Saturday until the end of September.  
Last year there were a lot of restrictions to deal with. However, they still had a great Market season, but it just wasn’t the same without doing some of the fun events that vendors and market-goers were used to doing.
This year the Heart of Rushville Farmers’& Artisans’Market are bringing back the Little Sprouts Children’s program. The programs will begin on June 5th and run through September 11th. All programs will begin at 10 a.m. and are open to any school-aged child.  The programs will focus mainly on gardening, farming, healthy soil, recycling and other earth-friendly topics.  They try to do hands-on projects with the kids so they can make or plant something to take home with them.  All of the kids will also receive a $1 voucher at every program.  These vouchers can be spent with any vendor at the Market.  This year they hope to collect enough plastic bottle caps so they can have a bench made for the Market area.
Live music is also back on the agenda this year at the Market. Isaac and Haymond is lined up to play opening day –May 22nd.  If you are a musician and would like to play at the Market, please contact Market Master Joyce Miller.  You can reach her at 765-561-2572.
