(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana Grown recently launched the Shop Indiana Grown online marketplace connecting Hoosiers directly to local vendors and products, according to State Rep. Randy Lyness (R-West Harrison).

"Indiana Grown has become one of the largest marketplaces for agriculture products across our state," Lyness said. "This new online tool allows more Hoosiers to shop local and support our neighbors' farms and businesses."

When using ShopIndianaGrown.org, Hoosiers can find nearly 60 vendors offering more than 200 products for sale. According to Lyness, new vendors are signing up daily to sell their goods like honey, coffee beans, chocolate treats, hot sauces, candles and more. Hoosiers can shop by product category and vendor, and purchase directly from the site.  

According to Lyness, his new online marketplace helps Indiana farmers and producers reach a greater market for their products and be able to educate consumers on the importance of buying locally grown, raised, processed and packaged items.

More than 1,600 farms and businesses that grow, raise, produce or process agriculture items in the state are Indiana Grown members. Lyness said Hoosiers can become a vendor for free online at ShopIndianaGrown.org and clicking on "become a vendor" at the top right of the page.
