[ISDA] Bag the sack lunch starting May 23! The Statehouse Market Returns!
Start Date: 4/16/2013
End Date: 4/16/2013
Entry Description
Come out to enjoy more fresh options & more food trucks!

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana state employees and downtown workers can bag the sack lunch starting Thursday, May 23 when the Statehouse Market opens for a full 20-week schedule.

The Indiana Department of Agriculture (ISDA) is proud to again partner with the Indiana State Personnel Department (SPD), the host of the Statehouse Market. The initiative offers fresh lunch options and convenient shopping for healthy dinners.

“This program allows our state employees and downtown workers to enjoy a tasty lunch, purchase from the wide-variety of fresh, high quality foods, and get to know our Hoosier farmers,” said Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann, Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development. “Consumers want to know more about where their food comes from. This is a perfect opportunity to ask questions about the work required of our farmers to provide nutritious and delicious food for Hoosiers.”

Each week, more than 20 vendors, including a mix of food trucks and farm stands, are scheduled to provide event
attendees with a variety of produce, dairy and meat products, as well as freshly prepared meals to eat on the go. Most weeks, the Indiana Dietetics Association will have a booth to advise shoppers on nutrition information. The Statehouse Market is 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each Thursday from May 23 to October 4 on Robert D. Orr Plaza near the Statehouse.

“Our goals are to provide healthy choices for state employees and our market guests and to promote locally grown products,” said SPD Chief of Staff Denny Darrow. “Healthy lifestyles begin with healthy nutrition. We want the Statehouse Market to be a convenient, fun environment to experience the healthy choices available from our farmers and vendors.”

Launched in June 2012, the Statehouse Market was embraced by State employees averaging attendance of 1,000 each week. Vendors and food trucks are required to go through an application process to participate. Additional information can be found at www.in.gov/spd/2737.htm.
