Indiana Artisan - A Very Cool Giveaway!


If you are from Indiana and have ever shopped at a Farmer's Market, Fair, or other event, you might have noticed this logo on certain products.

I purchase Indiana Artisan products from my local Farmer's Market, at the Indiana State Fair, and in shops that support local businesses.

Indiana Artisans are artists in many forms - glass work, photography, jewelry, canvas, woodwork - and "foodists" - everything from wine to marshmallows to bloody mary mix to noodles to honey!

There is an event coming up that sounds very interesting... the Indiana Artisan Marketplace.  "The Marketplace is at the Expo Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. This year, doors will be open Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Want to get in early, when the artisans have all of their one-of-a-kind work available for sale?  This year, join us for “A Taste of Indiana Artisan Marketplace” preview party.  Friday, April 5, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. all the food Artisans will provide samples, four wineries will pair their best with cheeses from Traders Point Creamery, and a trio from the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra will provide lively music to entertain as you roam the Expo Hall. "

Here is a video of last year's event:
