Our market offers fresh and unique local produce, plants, meats, baked goods and homemade crafts in a cultural setting. The Barr Street Market is a producer-only market, meaning that our vendors personally make or grow the products they sell. Every vendor is local, coming from Allen or surrounding counties. Live music and children’s activities add to the experience.
The market is open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is still located in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne on the corner of Wayne and Barr Streets. Free parking is available in the History Center lot along Berry Street and on the streets in the surrounding blocks, with ample opportunities to lock up a bicycle as well. Admission to the History Center is free during market hours.
The YLNI Barr Street Market is run entirely by volunteers. When YLNI revived the market 8 years ago, we had 4-6 vendors; we now host 20+ weekly.
