From the early 1900’s when our local farmers gathered on the Colfax Bridge to sell their crops and crafts—to the building of the structure that we now know as The South Bend Farmers Market—the one thing remaining unchanged has been tradition. After becoming incorporated in 1924, the shareholders began construction on the same lot we stand on today. A fire in the early 70’s threatened the Market, but once again the farmers joined together to rebuild and continue to provide our community with the bounties of their harvests.

The Café was a gathering place for vendors and patrons alike to share a meal, a laugh, and special friendships that would not only last their lifetime, but be passed on and remembered by generations. Now, in the hustle and bustle of the 21st Century, we at The South Bend Farmers Market invite you to sit, laugh, and enjoy the freshest produce and seasonal goodies we have to offer—and continue this time-honored tradition with generations to come.
