Another great option for fresh produce is the Kokomo Downtown Farmers’ Market Store & Café.

And to top it all off, they sell fresh, hot meals prepared in the café with a rotating menu.
Starting in spring and lasting through fall, you can find fresh produce, flowers, outdoor decorations and seasonal items at Top Banana Farm Market. At different times throughout their season, you can find peaches, strawberries and pumpkins, in addition to their regular fruit and vegetable offerings.
