Downtown Bloomington Association Farmers' Market

Located on the historic downtown square, the Downtown Bloomington Association Farmers' Market is a popular Saturday morning meeting place. Not only does the market give customers a colorful venue to buy locally grown farm products, it also puts them in touch with local artists, musicians, and community organizations. The market features different musical performances each week. Cooking demos are offered regularly, and the McLean County Museum of History sponsors hands-on activities for all ages.

The Downtown Bloomington Association Farmers' Market is a producer-only market offering a wide array of farm products -- including vegetables, fruits, cheeses, pork, beef, free-range poultry and eggs, flowers, plants, herbs, and more. Most products are chemical-free and grown using sustainable practices. In addition, a variety of locally processed foods is available -- including artisan breads and fresh bakery goods.

While at the farmers' market, visitors also enjoy shopping Bloomington's historic downtown business district -- which features a natural foods grocery store, gourmet food shops, art galleries, gift shops, coffee shops, bakeries, an espresso bar, and unique local eateries -- all located in picturesque local buildings.

Since moving to Bloomington-Normal, I've been amazed consistantly with the variety as well as open nature of this community's Farmer's Market. I love the artist's lane, but the home-made salsas and sauces is where it's at.... [more]

Every Saturday morning, I'm delighted to see the variety of locally grown vegetables, fruits, and herbs that are available at the market. I appreciate the fact that so many of our local farmers are willing to take time from their day to share their goods, and especially thankful to those farmers who provide antibiotic-, hormone-, and growth-hormone-free meats and pesticide- and herbicide-free produce....
