Someday Margaret and I will move back to Indianapolis from Zionsville. Not only do I miss the city, but I also don’t enjoy the suburban lifestyle. But when we go, we will absolutely miss being just a few minutes away from Zionsville’s charming downtown, with its shops and restaurants.
We will also miss events like the Brick Street Market. It’s an annual thing, except that (I think) it was skipped last year thanks to the pandemic. But this year, with vaccinations on the rise, they held it. We’re fully vaccinated, so we went. I had Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 in, and my 35mm f/2.8 SMC Pentax-A lens on, my Pentax KM, so I brought it along.
Several blocks of downtown are closed for the market, and vendors set up booths. Some of the vendors are local, most of the rest come from around the state, and a few come from surrounding states to hawk their (mostly) handmade wares.
It’s called the Brick Street Market because Zionsville’s Main Street is paved in brick. It’s hard to see in these photos, but the the center section of the street is a different color brick from the outer sections, because that’s where the streetcar tracks used to run and when they were removed I guess they couldn’t find matching brick.
I moved in close to capture some of the more interesting products for sale.
