Madison, Ind., native Terrell takes over as director of local Farmers Market
He returned to Madison after a collegiate soccer career
(May 2019) – Daniel Terrell has accepted a position as director of the Madison, Ind., Farmers’ Market. Terrell’s family moved to Madison in the early 1990s when he was 5 years old. His parents and sister still live there as well.
Liz Brownlee, a member of the Farmers’ Market advisory committee as well as its former director and vendor, says that they hired Terrell because he has “the critical skills in business development” to help grow the Madison Farmers’ Market and attract new customers.
Located at Broadway Fountain in downtown Madison, the market is the oldest continuous farmers’ market in Indiana, with roots back to 1809.
At present, it offers everything from fresh homegrown meat, vegetables, eggs, honey, flowers and plants to crafts, wine, prepared food and music. Currently, it’s open three days a week April through October from 8 a.m. to noon, with a winter market on Saturday at Trinity United Methodist Church, also on Broadway Street.

On Saturdays, the market often features live music, breakfast and community events.
When asked about his vision for the Farmers’ Market, Terrell says he wants to add more entertainment and prepared food, and more things that will make the whole family come to the market. He wants customers to see the transparency of the product they buy from the Farmers’ Market to know that they’re getting the freshest, best quality products.
Terrell attended school in Madison and graduated from Madison Consolidated High School. By this time, he was good enough at soccer to get a scholarship to Northern Kentucky University with a major in business.
His freshman year, his team made it to the NCAA, Division II Final Four. Later, Terrell transferred to Marian University in Indianapolis where he also played varsity soccer until his graduation when he received his degree in managerial business.
Since then, jobs have taken him several places, including a two-year position in New York City.
After moving back to Madison, Terrell has held a position at Seray Optical Technology and worked to develop a restaurant franchise, “Mother’s Grilled Wings.”
Terrell’s interests outside work continue with soccer, where he would like to develop a traveling team, as well as working with the Sachleben Memorial Soccer Camp, which helps children dealing with mental health issues and suicide.
He likes to read mysteries and walk his two dogs along the trails around Madison.
