CenturyLink Chamber Affinity Program

Whitley County is a great place to call home. We are made up of four outstanding communities. Churubusco, Columbia City, Larwill & South Whitley are brought together by the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce. The chamber works to enhance the quality of life in our community by leading, supporting and facilitating business.

2014 Whitley County Farmers Market

The Whitley County Farmers Market is held each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., encircling the courthouse in downtown Columbia City. The market opens for the season on May 10. After April 9, 2014, any available space wll be offered to potential new vendors--with a preference for adding more produce and food vendors this year. A newly appointed Whitley County Farmers Market board has a goal of balancing the kinds of booths at the market to ensure a good blend of crafts, foods, and fresh produce to suit the interest of market shoppers. All individuals calling about space will be added to a list and will be considered for the limited booth space that may open during the year.

Full and partial season spaces are available. Full season booths are $75 and partial season booths are $60. As space is available, weekly vendors may be invited to attend as well. For additional information, contact the Whitley County Chamber at 260.248.8131 or print out your registration form

Annual South Whitley Garage Sale & Craft Festival

Registration forms are available for the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce's 2014 South Whitley Garage Sale & Craft Festival, being held April 25 & 26th. Booths will be assigned by the committee based on when the paid reservation is received.
