Typically the words "farmers market" conjure images of bountiful green harvests and warm, sunny days. While it may no longer be warm, the bounty is just as abundant this year as the Fort Wayne Farmers Market stays open during the winter! The Fort Wayne Farmers Market takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the first third Saturday of each month. The market is conveniently located downtown at Parkview Field, home to the Fort Wayne Tin Caps baseball team during baseball season. The winter market is located in the Lincoln Financial Event Center and parking is available in the lots near the field or in the adjoining parking garage if no special events are taking place.
