It’s better in Valparaiso

Have you visited the Valparaiso Market yet?


We can’t believe the Valparaiso Market has been up and running for almost two weeks. From our opening day festivities, to our awesome vendors, to launching our new Loading Zone, it’s been a wonderful way to kick off the summer season. The Valparaiso Market has evolved over time to become known in our community as a source for local products. Our goal is to bring local farmers, artisans and vendors to the community. We are excited that the 2017 season has begun and vendors and customers alike are heading to Valparaiso!  If you haven’t made it to the Valparaiso Market yet, don’t worry. The Valparaiso Market runs until October 21st, every Tuesday and Saturday from 8 am to 2 pm, so there’s plenty of time to take a trip to downtown Valparaiso and experience the market yourself.

We pride ourselves in curating a farmer’s market that provides our community with a quality overall experience. Hoping to ease your shopping this year, we added our Shoppers Loading  Zone. This addition allows guests to leave bags with us at our Valparaiso Events booth, while they pull up their car. When you arrive to the Loading Zone, we bring your bags right to your car! Simple as that! A guest at the market even said, “This Loading Zone thing is such a good idea!  We’re telling everyone!”. We love to hear that. In tradition, we have our free market bag this year available at our booth. Make sure to stop by early during your trip to the market, because they have been going fast! Also, take a glance at our growing season chart at our booth to find out when your favorite produce will be in season and available at the market.

Many of our vendors tell us they come to the Valparaiso Market because of the great people that visit the market each week that quickly become regular customers. Our vendors enjoy visiting with you and are appreciative of your support. Valparaiso Events organizes the market each year and we couldn’t agree more! Pairing our great vendors with the visitors to the market is a treat for us to witness.  We love to see the Valparaiso Market community grow, and see returning and new vendors join us this season.

We asked Deb Harrison, from Deb’s Garden why she comes back each year. She says, “Even though I live in Wanatah, Valpo is still home. I consider it “small town”, so it is easy to get to know the regulars. I believe in offering only the best products, fresh and local… and Valpo is the opportunity for me. I think the people deserve to know that what they are getting was grown just down the road. Small town, friendly, local, fresh…. It’s ‘Home Grown Goodness’ and that’s a good thing”.

We are looking forward to the rest of our market season and hope you are too. We have lots more in store!

The Valparaiso Market is located at the Central Park Plaza, 63 Lafayette Street in Valparaiso.

June 3rd – October 21st Tuesdays: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturdays: 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
