LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- For more than 165 years, the Farmer's Market is held every Saturday in downtown Lafayette.

Local businesses including farmers and artists offer their services for sale. Fresh flowers, baked goods, vegetables and other produce are also offered.

Business owner Darryl Brown said it is great exposure for his business.

"The great thing about the farmer's market is the people that want that locally grown product are all coming down here," Brown said. "That's exactly who my clients are for my business is people that want that locally grown product and they don't want to have to go to that big box store."

The farmer's market is held on 5th Street between Main and Columbia Streets every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and is free to the public.
