Whether you love homemade pasta, fruit-filled scones, or vegan oatmeal creme pies, we’ve found six taste treats that you’ll want to try at Indianapolis-area farmers markets, all from local businesses that are either owned or co-owned by women.
CINNAMON RAISIN TWIRL BREAD FROM MOTHER NOBLE
Mother Noble is owned by Delana Mann, and Delana has been baking since she was eight years old. Her Cinnamon Raisin Twirl bread is a delicious soft loaf that is filled with plump raisins and swirled with a cinnamon sugar mixture and topped with vanilla icing. It’s available in two sizes: full size for $7 and mini for $5. The bread is great toasted or eaten sliced right from the bag, so get yours at the Garfield Park Farmers Market.
BURSTING BUBBLE DRINKS FROM THE BUBBLE TEA LADY
If you’re at the Fishers Farmers Market, look for Avanti Snyder, also known as “The Bubble Tea Lady.” Her booth features “create your own” Bursting Bubble Drinks with edible juice-filled bursting bubbles. The bubbles come in flavors like mango and peach, and you can add them into lemonade, tea, or an Arnold Palmer for a refreshing treat.
VEGAN OATMEAL CREME PIES FROM KEI2HEALTH
Trilanda Colbert is the owner of Kei2Health, and she sells her products at the Pike Farmers Market and Garfield Park Farmers Market on rotating Saturdays. Her $5 vegan oatmeal creme pies are made with two moist oatmeal cookies and an avocado oil buttercream filling. They’re plant-based, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free, and egg-free — but they’re full of flavor!
PASTA FROM TALL GIRL SPECIALTY PASTA
Diane Self is the “tall girl” behind Tall Girl Specialty Pasta, and you can stock up on her pastas at the Carmel Farmers Market and the Broad Ripple Farmers Market. She sells 10-ounce containers of pastas like garlic fettucine and cracked pepper spaghetti for $6 each, as well as ready-to-eat pasta salads for $8.
RASPBERRY LEMON POPPYSEED SCONE FROM NATIVE BREAD
Native Bread is owned by Hayley McGinley, and the company’s raspberry lemon poppyseed scones are a standout. Packed with juicy raspberries and both lemon juice and lemon zest to give an extra kick of flavor, the $4 scones are gluten-free and vegan. Snag one at the Broad Ripple Farmers Market, as well as at the Garfield Park Farmers Market every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.
JALAPENO CHEDDAR BREAD FROM DEBBIE’S DAUGHTERS
Debbie’s Daughters is at the Noblesville Farmers Market every Saturday through mid-October as well as at their Bakery Cafe in downtown Noblesville. Owned by Jessica Walls and her sisters, the company makes small batch, from-scratch breads that range in price from $6-$8 a loaf and come in flavors like jalapeno cheddar, rustic wheat, and honey oat.
