Ameriana Bank to Host The Marketplace at Westfield
WESTFIELD, Ind. (June 6, 2013) - In the absence of the 2013 Westfield Farmers' Market, Rob Garrett, Ameriana's Westfield Banking Center Manager, today announced that Ameriana will host the inaugural 2013 Marketplace at Westfield.
Garrett invited the vendors who were previously committed to the Farmers' Market to set up in the Bank's parking lot, located at 3333 East State Road 32 at Carey Road. The Marketplace will be held Fridays from 5:00 - 8:00 pm from June 14 through September 27.
"We've always enjoyed being a part of the Farmers' Market, both as sponsors and patrons. We couldn't imagine a Westfield summer without it, so when we heard the news of its cancellation, we wanted to do something to keep it alive in our community," said Garrett.
Ameriana Bank is providing the space for The Marketplace at no cost to vendors, and admission is free.
Commenting on the announcement, Jerry Gassen, Ameriana President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Quite frankly, that's what a true community bank does. We have always believed that helping the people and businesses in the towns where we're located is the best investment we can make." Response from others in the community has been positive, including the Current in Westfield and the Indianapolis Business Journal.
