Visit Bloomington Farmers’ Market on Saturday

BLOOMINGTON – During the first week of August every year, farmers’ markets from Alaska to Florida celebrate everything that makes farmers’ markets important.

As local food systems with short supply chains, they are resilient, dependable, and provide an essential service to the communities they feed as well as the farmers and ranchers that rely on them.

Not only do farmers’ markets across the nation increase access to fresh and nutritious produce they also facilitate personal connections between farmers, shoppers, and community members.

The Bloomington Farmer’s Market takes great pride in all its vendors, both those that grow through conventional methods and the several that are organic and free of preservatives and pesticides.
