Culinary Corner Features Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market

Summer is now in full bloom!  There is no better place to spend a Saturday morning other than our local Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market.  If you are looking for fresh, wholesome, locally grown food, the market is the place to be!  The Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market also features an array of locally crafted arts, jewelry, soaps, and more.  This is true foods, local flavors, and a very local experience!

The day of “just produce” is long gone.  The market not only provides our community with the freshest produce one can find, but it also hosts other small businesses such as Burlington Meats, which takes pride in preparing great tasting foods from the finest and freshest meat.  This vendor processes pork, beef, and deer to your specification.  They are also well known for their pulled BBQ pork, homemade brats, and Italian sausage.

Das Bauck Haus offers cinnamon rolls among other freshly baked pastries and cakes at the market

Das Bauck Has (The Bake House) specializes in cakes, pies, breads, and is a distributor for Charitee Organic Agave Nectar Products.  Agave Nector is a natural sweetener for food and beverages and has many health advantages over traditional artificial sweeteners. 

If you are looking for fresh herbs, the Dragonwood booth is a great stop.  They also have locally produced honey and an assortment of home-crafted teas. 

The Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market loves to have musicians, artists, and educational classes on site whenever possible.  The market will buzz with local musicians such as the sounds of the Rhum Academy of Music, another one of Downtown Kokomo’s jewels.  Rhum Academy is a place where individual students are encouraged to express themselves freely through music.

Come spend a Saturday morning with local flair!  The Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday now through October 15, 2011 from 8:00 a.m. – Noon at the corner of Sycamore and Union Streets.  Visit their website for more information or view their calendar of events at
