Shop Fresh and Local
Part of sustainable living is supporting sellers who specialize in local, seasonal, and/or sustainable products. One of the best ways to live this philosophy is to frequent locally owned and operated markets in your area. Evansville, Indiana is situated in a great spot for multiple local markets, so you can check out one of them or all of them to show your support for nearby growers, makers, and sellers!
Aihua International Market
When you are looking for that elusive special ingredient, it’s likely Aihua International Market will have it. Just a short 12-minute drive from Post House, they offer food selections from a variety of cultures, including:
With over 500 reviews on Google, it has a 4.5-star rating, and a local guide summed it up with this: “Wonderful variety. Great selection. Great way to expand food horizons. Super kind staff.” This is the place to go when you want to try something new and support a local business at the same time.
Mayse Farm Market
This particular market is a special find because it’s indoors and is also family-owned. The market is an extension of the family farm and includes a huge range of produce and other products. They not only offer the fruits of their farm but also events at the farm, such as impressive corn mazes and school visits. Take a short 12-minute drive to this local gem. At the Mayse’s market, you can expect to find:
- Fall squash
- Indiana sweet corn
That barely touches the expansive list of crops they have for sale, and the selection is always seasonal so you can come back year-round and always find something new and fresh. Be sure to visit in person and see for yourself.
Elbert’s Natural Food Market
This particular market is unique because it has been in operation for 14 years in Evansville. Elbert’s takes special pride in holding their products to high-quality standards so you know exactly what you’ll be getting. They feature monthly specials and a variety of brands, so it’s worth the quick 12-minute drive. Some fun things to find here include:
- Local honey
- Local meats
- Local eggs
Bulk items (grains, seeds, coffee, and more!)
Another highlight of this store is its selection of foods for those who have dietary restrictions or other sensitivities. You can find items that are vegan and dairy-free as well as natural cleaners and soaps.
