The Indianapolis City Market’s history is as rich as the promise of its future. When opened in 1886, the market ushered in a new tradition: an open space for the sale of meats and produce, The Original Gathering Place, if you will. Indianapolis City Market is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a vibrant downtown event destination. Today, the City Market offers patrons an experience that combines the best of both yesterday and today with a wide variety of eateries, retailers, coffee, barber shop and an all Indiana craft beer bar with many merchants offering delivery services. In 2021, the Indianapolis City Market hosted its’ 25th Season of the Original Farmers’ Market which runs annually from May through October. The Indianapolis City Market Catacombs tours in partnership with Indiana Landmarks runs May through October. www.indycm.com
