Brought Healthy Energy to Historic City Market

Historic City Market exploded with healthy energy as our community celebrated EcoFest Indy on Saturday, May 12.

This first annual event began at 11 a.m. with a boom (actually, multiple poundings) as Ryan Taylor Anderson led a group of eager participants in a drum circle. Artists played live music throughout the day and the audience was particularly enthralled when Adam Riviere performed on the didgeridoo.

Exhibitors were located both indoors and outdoors displaying products such as organic apparel, hydroponic plant equipment, live herbs, recycled and upcycled fashions, books, art, music, and more. Smart Center featured their Smart Car and IndyGo offered tours of the new hybrid bus and held a drawing for free bus passes. ProShred Security received boxes of paper to shred and recycle, and according to their reports, a total of seven trees were saved due to the event.

Indianapolis City Market vendors served food and beverages with many running out of offerings before the event ended due to the large turnout of attendees, many that arrived on foot and on bicycles.
Many thanks for all the hard work of the volunteers who pitched in to make the day a success. Indianapolis is a better place because of you.

EcoFest Indy was sponsored by The Onion, Natural Awakenings magazine and NaturallyGoodDeals.com.
