Bloomington Farmers’ Market this Saturday

(BLOOMINGTON) – This Saturday will be your last opportunity to purchase fresh produce and other goodies for your Thanksgiving meal at Bloomington’s Farmers’ Market.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is one of Bloomington’s favorite traditions, the 17th annual Holiday Market. Celebrating as a community is a great way to kick off the holiday season on Saturday, Nov. 30th. from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Shop for locally grown farm products, and arts and fine crafts created by local artisans, all while listening to the music of the season. The TubaSantas fill the Market with the holiday spirit, and St. Nick will visit too.
