Visit the Bloomington Farmers’ Market Saturday for fresh bakery items

BLOOMINGTON – This catchphrase “Now That’s Good Stuff!” by Scholars Inn Bakehouse captures the essence of this artisan wholesale bakery located in Bloomington. They feature all-natural bread, homemade pastries, premium bagels, and their famous granola.

This rosemary olive bread is a sample of what to expect each Saturday when you visit them at the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market. This is a classic farm bread made with fresh rosemary and Greek Kalamata olives. Uses for this bread include picnics, parties, relaxing evenings with wine and cheese, and with lunch or dinner.

Please note the start time change to the October – November Bloomington Farmers’ Market. Through the remainder of the season, the Market begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. Also, to avoid getting your vehicle towed, please refrain from parking in the Johnson Creamery parking lot.
