Our Market

Welcome to the first annual Borden Museum Farmer's Market. Wood Township and the community at large are excited to offer this family-friendly event to promote healthy living and healthy eating in a community-centered environment.

This event is designed to reach back into the rich history of the town of Borden. The rail system that passes through Borden was once one of the main loading points for carloads of strawberries shipped by The Borden-Pekin Berry Growers Association north along the Monon Rail. The large volume of strawberries supplied by the area farmers influenced the naming of the athletic teams at Borden High School. The teams were nicknamed the Borden Berries in 1934 and the name was used until 1966 when it was changed by the student body to the Borden Braves.


From I-65 take exit 7 and turn west towards Salem. Drive 5 miles then turn right to stay on Highway 60 West. Continue approximately 8 miles to Borden and turn north at the flashing light which is West street. The parking lot is on your right, just past the railroad tracks and next to the playground.
