Indy Local Food Guide

The guide is your link to local, organic, and sustainable food in Central Indiana.  Through 2015, The Indy Local Food Guide concentrated on the counties of Boone, Johnson, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Marion, Morgan and Shelby. In 2016, we’re happy to announce we’re expanding coverage to Madison County!

Get connected with fresh local food, the farmers who grow it, and the markets, grocers, and restaurants committed to stewarding locally grown products. Check out Indiana’s seasonal produce calendar to know what’s in season and when your favorite produce is available fresh from the farm.
