Central Market Information
In the Spring of 2013 we opened the Market in Central Park. The idea was to bring a “farmer’s market” to the town. However, it didn’t take long before we realized that what was taking shape was far different than the ordinary “farmer’s market” and we quickly adjusted our creative thinking.
Griffith Central Market is a festival that begins each spring and winds it’s way through the summer. It’s a microcosm that celebrates everything that the Town of Griffith is. It’s great music, hand crafted wares, delicious foods, and locally brewed ale’s. Nestled under the old oak trees that stir a gentle breeze in the warm summer months, the Market sits along a winding path through the park.
The success of the Market has everything to do with quality vendors and the amazingly supportive citizenry of this great little town we call home. The townspeople love the Market and in turn the Market continues to evolve into a venue that embraces all the people of Griffith. It’s the place to be on Friday afternoon/evening.
The Market is scheduled to being on Friday May 6th weather permitting. The event starts at 3 pm and music starts at 6 pm.
