The Brick Street Market was Lin Moormann’s first impression of Zionsville. Now, as director of the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce, she runs the event.
“It’s wild how things like that happen,” she said.
Approximately 120 vendors will participate May 11 in the annual market, held on the bricks of several Main Street blocks.
Vendors include metalsmiths, jewelers and artisan soap makers. Products include clothing for all ages, furniture and paintings. There will be something for everybody, according to Moormann. Vendors are from throughout the Midwest.
A range of food from snacks, like roasted corn and frozen yogurt, to meals like Nacho Mama and Amazing Hazels’ sloppy joes will be available for purchase. Food vendors will be at the north and south end of the closed section of Main Street.
Moormann said the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce tries to bring new experiences to the market every year.
The kids’ area will undergo the biggest change with the absence of bounce houses, to be replaced with a 20-foot-long mural for families of all ages to color. The picture will depict a festival with sponsor logos.
“It’s really a good all-ages type of event,” Moormann said.
Silly Safari and live entertainment will offer shows throughout the day.
“That Brick Street Market put Zionsville on my radar,” Moormann said. “That was my introduction to Zionsville. I just remember thinking what an absolutely lovely little town. I just love the fact that it kept that village feel and it was very different from some of the other places I’d been to around Indianapolis.”
The Brick Street Market is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A free shuttle will run from the east side of Zionsville Community High School to the downtown Zionsville area.
