Muncie, IN—Seniors, uncover a fresh, behind-the-scenes perspective of Farmers Market at Minnetrista during Senior Free-Admission Day: Growing Local. Programs will be held at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20.

“Go behind the booth to meet our Farmers Market Coordinator, Rosemary Tankersley, to learn all of the celebrations and challenges that make Farmers Market possible and fun for thousands of visitors,” said Visitor Experience Manager, Allison Clark. “Whether you’re a regular visitor or a prospective vendor, this is a great way to discover what it takes to grow local.”

Gather in the Courtyard Garden to meet with market vendors to learn what their market experience is like, what visitation is like, and what visitors to Farmers Market can experience this outdoor season at Minnetrista.
