    Terre Haute has a permanent produce market that is called "The Farmer's Market" even though it's not.

    We could try using "Farmer's Market" and I'm sure we would be allowed to in the end, since that is what we are, but I'd rather avoid the confusion and any legal type challenges to it.

    Someone suggested "Producer's Market", but that won't make much sense to an average customer. Maybe "Farm Producer's Market"? I dunno.

    any suggestions?

    Thanks
    Jena

    I liked the "Country Market" one, or how about "Country Fresh Market?"

    Here It's called "Clover Valley Farmer's Market".
    I'm not sure how they arrived at that name. I think it started out initially as Rainy River Valley Farmer's Market before the 'official' name.

    Well, it depends on where you're going to set up, but if at Fairbanks Park, possibly calling it RiverMarket, or GreenMarket on the River. And if somewhere else, go with the locale name. Each little neighborhood in town has a sort of name it goes by, like Farrington Grove, Collett Park, etc. so you could cabbage (no pun intended) onto the neighborhood ambiance for a name.

    ______________Farm Fresh Market
    All local producers

    or All Indiana producers (Many States have a "Fresh"program wherein chefs and growers are brought together. Western Washington's is called "Puget Sound Fresh" I'm pretty sure there is a Pennsylvania Fresh, also)

    or Buy Local, Guaranteed Fresh

    or Know Your Farmer (Personally)

    Based on multiple news reports over the past year or so might I suggest Senior Citizen Driver Vehicular Impact Zone.
