Significance: The Market House is representative of market structures built in the heart of many American cities during the 19th century. The Indianapolis City Market was the second of two buildings set aside as farmers markets in the original 1821 plat of Indianapolis. During a period in American history when the head of the household would do the shopping early in the morning and return with the news of the day, the market served as a public forum, a place where ideas as well as commodities were exchanged. Today it still serves this important function.
