IndyGo welcomes Growing Places Indy to sell produce at Transit Center

INDIANAPOLIS – IndyGo, in conjunction with Growing Places Indy and the City of Indianapolis, is proud to present the return of Food in Transit this afternoon.

The Farm Stand will be held at the Julia M. Carson Transit Center every Friday between June 7 and the end of September, from 3:00 to 6:00pm. The market will be located outdoors just north of the western entrance; rain location is inside the Transit Center.

Food in Transit creates a focus of well-being to current and future transit riders. All vegetables are organically grown from urban locations around the Indianapolis metropolitan area.

In season vegetables at the Farm Stand will vary from week to week. As always, you’ll find fresh produce at low-prices from $1 to $3. Cash, EBT, credit, and debit are all accepted forms of payment, and Growing Places Indy team members will be onsite to answer questions about the produce and help with recipe suggestions.
