Support the Local Community with the Best Farmers Markets Near Merrillville, IN

  |     |   Life at Whitcomb Terrace, Local Events

Farmers Markets and summertime tend to go hand in hand, with many markets running through the fall. There’s something wonderful about fresh, local produce and handcrafted goods. Small businesses and farmers can showcase their products and services to the community, and it feels good to the consumer to know where their food came from.

We wanted to highlight these farmers and crafters and inform our residents at Whitcomb Terrace about farmers markets happening right here around Merrillville. From fruits and veggies to craft goods, honey, and baked goods, these are the best local markets to enjoy!

Miller Beach Farmers Market

667 S. Lake Street, just south of Route 12 in Gary, Indiana

219-238-6758, or by emailing [email protected]

May – September, Sundays, 11 am – 1 pm

Just 20 minutes north of Whitcomb Terrace, and within walking distance of Marquette Park Beach, Miller Beach Farmers Market is one of the best. This is a great way to get out on a weekend and see both a fantastic market and get out on the water!

This market features a vast range of local foods and craft goods, including farm-fresh produce, baked goods, ethnic foods, honey, plants, fresh-cut flowers, handmade soaps and body butter, cheese, jewelry, and art. Outreach and education are important, which is why we also sponsor local nonprofits and feature them in the market.

This not-for-profit market relies on vendors and fundraising. Volunteers are a huge part of our organization, an extension of the Miller Beach Arts & Creative District

Come enjoy the sunshine!
