The Indianapolis International Airport is preparing to build a new farmers’ market, allowing the airport’s 9.4 million annual travellers to enjoy locally-grown food.
Once completed, The Farmers’ Market, featuring Indiana Grown, will showcase Indiana’s rich culinary landscape by offering foods, beverages and brands that can only be found in the Hoosier state, according to the Indiana State Department of Agriculture.
The 3,300-sq.-ft. market, managed by SSP America, will be built in Concourse B. There will be a sit-down dining area, where visitors will be able to enjoy a fresh, locally-grown salad or hand-tossed pizza, or order from a full-service menu created by celebrity chef and Indianapolis native Greg Hardesty.
Construction is expected to begin this year. However, completion of the project and opening timeline have yet to be finalized.
