EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - There is just two more weeks to take advantage of Market on Main in downtown Evansville.

The weekly event takes place in front of the Ford Center and begins at 9:30 a.m.

People can pick up some fresh produce from local vendors or get some lunch from the food trucks.

Since it is the end of the season, some vendors say they are running out of product.

Despite having fewer booths, Market Manager Ashley Kiefer wants the public to know there are still many places to buy fresh produce.

“We still have plenty of fresh produce,” Kiefer said. “This is actually right at harvest time. Earlier in the season, we don’t have quite as much produce as we do right now. So this is a great time for people to actually utilize local farmers markets because it’s when you’re going to get like the peak ripeness of everything.”

Artisan vendors, who sell products like candles and jewelry, are also available at Market on Main.

Next week’s event will be the last one for the year.

The market will return for its fourth season during the summer of 2022.
