The Statehouse Market is a unique opportunity to sell to more than 12,000 state employees, as well as other business professionals in the area. We have the ability to promote and highlight the market through direct email and other marketing techniques to all employees. Food trucks are invited and sprinkled throughout the vendors as well. Offering hot, delicious lunches, the trucks have a significant social media following, which brings in more customers.
2018 Vendor Information
Our application process is currently available to returning vendors and food trucks. We’ve emailed returning trucks via the email we have on file. If you’re not sure if you’re on our email list, please email us at email@example.com to be added.
Again this season, we are capping our food truck roster at 50 food trucks for our initial scheduling. Our returning trucks are invited back and we’ll consider all new applications thereafter. Trucks not selected in the first 50 for the season are given the option to be included on an alternate list. If a cancellation occurs, trucks on the alternate list will be contacted and given the opportunity to attend.
All interested vendors (farmers and food trucks) should email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about our market.
Please review our Statehouse Market Requirements – updated for 2018.

Do you serve a healthy selection or gluten-free option? Are you using local, farm fresh produce?
On our application we state that preference is given to trucks who utilize Indiana produce and whose menus feature healthy options. This is what we are looking for from food trucks for our event. We like to promote healthy menu selections from your truck to our employees each time you’re here. We want to know about your signature menu items too. We also want to know about vegetarian and gluten-free options. If you are using local produce or you grow some of your own ingredients, we want to know that too. On your application, please be clear about this so we know how committed your truck is to helping us expand our Invest In Your Health wellness program for state employees.
If you’re interested in teaming up with any of our vendors by using some of their meat or produce, let us know about it. We’ll have our vendor list finalized soon.
