BLOOMINGTON – The Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market will be open Saturday at the Showers Common area on North Morton Street from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.
According to Clarence Boone, BCFM Coordinator, last Saturday the market at one point was at crowd capacity so thank you to those of you who waited patiently to enter the Market.
“This may be the case in future weeks, as there is still a directive on crowd limits from the Monroe County Health Department,” he added. “We appreciate your patience as we work to make the Market a safe and enjoyable experience.
Boone said busking and additional seating will be coming soon.
“We look forward to once again having live music on-site, and seating will be made available to shoppers who wish to sit and enjoy a delicious purchase from our food and beverage artisans,” Boone added.
Officials recognize the newest vendor at the Market, Ash and Elm Cider Company, based out of Indianapolis.

Masks are required while inside the Market and remember to socially distance.

Public restrooms are not available.
