Visit the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market Saturday

BLOOMINGTON – The Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market is one of the area’s most beloved traditions. Every Saturday from April through November, local vendors sell a variety of foods and goods that are grown and or made in Indiana.

You can shop for fresh fruits and vegetables at vendor stands like Flynn’s Produce. Proprietor John Flynn specializes in maple syrup, vegetables, raspberries, melons, and wild gathered products.

On Saturday, September 25 from 10:00 a.m. until noon at the Farmers’ Market, you’re invited to Blooming Neighborhoods: a celebration of the wonderful, diverse, and eclectic neighborhoods that make up our city.

Learn about how neighbors come together to build community, support one another, and shape their neighborhoods through activities, events, and grant-funded projects.

Representatives from neighborhoods across the city will gather on the terraced area under the trees in front of City Hall for a  time of networking, sharing ideas, and learning about the neighborhoods that make Bloomington a great place to live. Representatives from community organizations and City departments will also be present to share information about programs and services of interest to neighborhood residents.

 Everyone is invited to attend.

For more information or to reserve a table for your neighborhood or organization, contact:  Angela Van Rooy at 812-349-3505 or angela.vanrooy@bloomington.in.gov.

Here are a few more scheduled groups:

Centeotl is a traditional group from Mexico City that has been preserving the important oral tradition of the Aztec-Chichimeca Dance and ceremony for over 7 generations. Centeotl has performed in Powwows and Indigenous events all over the North East and tri-state area as well as in Europe and Mexico. Centeotl is devoted to preserving the tradition and helping our community to connect with their roots and to share them with the world.

Mariachi Perla del Medio Oeste was created in 2018 as a joint initiative between the Latin American Music Center at the Jacobs School of Music, the La Casa/Latino Cultural Center, and the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology. The group is a volunteer ensemble committed to the cultivation and promotion of Mexican-American,  Mexican, and Latin American music and culture, both within IU and the larger Southern Indiana region.
