We live in the Chicago area and coming down and enjoying this Community Farmers'Market was great. Lots of great fruits and vegetables are offered and the flowers and plants are beautiful. My meals are worked around the different produce we purchase that day. Thanks for making Bloomington a great place.

Coming from Denver, the Bloomington Community Farmers' Market is a paradise! The guarantee that the food for sale is locally produced, the variety and quality of the food for sale, and the atmosphere make it my favorite Saturday morning shopping errand. It is one of the best things about living in Bloomington, Indiana

It's one of the most awesome markets in the country. Well organized, nice facilities, good entertainment, good fellowship, great vendors with outstanding products. Additionally, it is located in the fantastic city of Bloomington with the oustanding Indiana University within walking distance. There is a new bike trail at the market entrance as well.

Bloomington, IN has an amazing farmers' market. Plenty of organic food, free range organic chicken, local produce, local wine, local cheese, and heirloom tomatoes. The atmosphere is also a draw. Local performers and often music for children. It represents food politics that are important to me: local organic farming with a friendly and socially conscious atmosphere.

Our Bloomington Community Farmer's Market is nestled between the new Bloomington B-line Bicycle/Walking Trail and the historic Showers Commons. It's the perfect "old meets new" setting for a market that is a tradition and novel in and of itself. I first recognized a lot of the vendors as guest speakers from the People's University of Bloomington Grow Organic Educator Series class that I've taken; it's great to see people practice what they teach. I've been to two of our regular vendor's farms. You can see The Chili Woman each week - you can taste-test heirloom varieties of sorrel, arugula, swiss chard, and lettuce; you can buy a head of fresh garlic and have another variety thrown in for free 'just because.' The variety of live music, and the annual Salsa Contest and Tomato Tasting are just the icing on the cake. Or rather the icing on the cake, quiche, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, onions, and flowers...

It's cheaper to buy organic produce directly from the farmers at the market over buying conventional produce from the supermarket. The world's best sweet corn is available, right next to two girls clogging, who are next to the person selling elk meat. A LARGE percentage of the town's population visits, and we always run into neighbors and friends while there.

The Farmer's market has so many vendors with a variety of locally grown foods, flowers, and prepared food. There is usually music and sometimes an art fair as well. It's always fun to go down and see what's going on. I never come home empty handed. It is hands down, the best farmers's market I have ever been to.

The farmers and other vendors are friendly and helpful, and some have become good friends over the years.

I have been going to the market since it was in a parking lot near the library. There is an incredible selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, cheese, and flowers each week during the season. The colors in each booth are an inspiration for my quilting. There is also live music and some form of dance each week. It is a place I am proud to bring visitors. I look forward to it as an event, not just a place to purchase food.

The Bloomington Community Farmers Market is one of those places that could of came right from a Steinbeck novel. The people who come to either buy or sell are both unique and flavorful and not only does the Farmer's Market represent a glimpse of a resilient America, but of a community that has unbound potential. Every Saturday the book is opened and a new chapter is written, with no two Saturdays ever being the same.

Our market has grown over the last two decades to become a fusion of town and gown in our university community. Its a great place to meet old friends and make new ones while shopping for fresh, lovingly local foods. The market vendors are not middle men -- they grown their own, and offer an increasingly rich choice of sustainable, organic and heirloom varieties, and the quality is superb. The market is supported by the city, by our local food coop, by an increasing number of restaurant chefs, and by young and old in a community thinking about our collective futures in hopeful, creative and sustainable ways.

I just visited for the first time last Saturday and fell in love with the whole atmosphere. I totally lost track of time and wanted to stay all day. The musicians mixed in with local crafters displaying their wares added such a flair to an excellent selection of top-notch fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, fresh meat, eggs, honey and floral arrangements, potted or freshly cut. I can't wait to go back and I'm telling everyone I know.

Bloomington Community Farmers' Market was way ahead of the curve offering pesticide-free produce years before "eat organic" became a fashionable buzz word. There's a dizzying display of fruit & veges, like lettuce grown from a variety of European seed that thrives thru the heat of summer. The farmer is a Vietnamese woman. Our beautiful beans were grown by a retired advertising executive. My eggplant came from a singing man from Trinidad. I believe my family is healthier because we eat local. Our Market is a tapestry woven from a colorful culture of sweat, sun, soil, & smiles.

I support Bloomington farmer's market because I like to support local farmers, I know my produce and other products are farmed with care and eco-consciousness. The value I get for my money is much higher than what I would get if going to a large supermarket. Also, it's fun! I usually go with my girlfriends, and we run into other friends and acquaintances. It's not just a shopping place, it's a meeting place, and the local music acts that come to perform make the experience even more enjoyable. The quality and variety of the items available can't be beat.

Not only does the Bloomington Market give us access to fresh, healthy, local produce, meats, and cheeses, it also includes honey, syrup, flowers, handicrafts, animal fibers, and body care products. Besides that, it supports a diversity of arts (there are always musicians and dancers there, as well as larger cultural diversity events). It is not expensive, despite what detractors might claim; this is the cost of real food, paid to the people who produce it. And finally, the Market is a hub of the community, a place where I can run into my professors, colleagues, friends from many different circles, and make new friends.

There's a great variety of vendors: plants, fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, syrup, honey, free-range meat and eggs, cheese, wine, yummy prepared foods . . . these days, there's very few kinds of food you can't find at the market at some point of the year (except packaged stuff that's chock full of preservatives). And it's fun to get to know people by seeing them week after week.

The Bloomington Farmers Market is not just a market; it's an event. Each week brings more than 100 vendors and thousands of people to one location, where good music, good food, good produce, good smells, and lots of smiles converge. Old and new friends meet up, hugs and smiles are exchanged, and everyone is happy. Small children and babies wiggle and waddle and dance to the beat of musicians, and many vendors double as entertainers. I look forward to it every week, long for it during the winter, and am sad to see it go at the end of the fall.

Bloomington Farmers' Market has its own book. Busman's Holiday performs there frequently.

The Bloomington Community Farmers' Market is positively and actively engaged with our community in all the best ways and on every participating level, including: education, outreach, support for our community gardens, integration with our three food Bloomingfoods Markets cooperatives (East, West, and Downtown); collaboration and participation with Bloomington's and Monroe County's finest, including farmers, growers, purveyors, municipal and cultural friends alike. The genuine and wonderfully down home mish-mash of dedicated Hoosier artisans, craftspersons, entertainers, and growers, is wonderfully meshed, realized, appreciated, and experienced by whomever happens to encounter the weekly Saturday scene. Bonus: Bloomington's Tuesday Community Farmers' Market on Madison Street (by BloomingFoods West), and Bloomington's Winter Farmers' Market at Harmony School during the "cooler months" of the year. Couldn't ask for a better farmers' market environment.

It is absolutely wonderful-the main meeting place in town for all types of people, a chief venue for fresh produce, of course, but also homegrown entertainment of many types. It is also informational--many causes are represented. I like the emphasis on locally produced produce, prepared foods, crafts and entertainment. If I cannot go, I really miss it. It is very well organized and management is friendly.

We live in Indianapolis, We have a summer home in Blooomington. The Saturday Bloomington Farmers Market is quintessential Bloomington -- the produce, the flowers, the people, the music. My Saturday is not complete without a visit. I have been to the markets in Indianpolis and none compare. Bloomington is bigger and offers more variety than the big city to the North. When the lotus flowers are in bloom, it is truly a special weekend.

Years ago, I came to our smallish market, made a quick tour to buy a few fruits or vegetables, and perhaps stopped occasionally to listen to a local fiddler or 12 years old girls singing for donations. Over the past 10 years, our market has flourished and grown like a well watered garden fed by plenty of sunshine. We outgrew our original small plot and had to move to bigger, more fertile grounds. The market now begins in April and extends through November. These days when I go to the market, I stay for hours. Not only to peruse the bounty and explosion of local produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods, flowers, bedding plants, honey, but to chat with many of the farmers who have become good friends, to take in the joyful sounds of old time music and clogging (spontaneous every Saturday!), or to gather around the market stage discovering other local talent. At the Bloomington Farmers' Market, news is exchanged, spontaneous plans are made, community connections are renewed, important ideas are born, delicious meals begin. The market is a shout of color, movement, energy, synergy. With our city's recent dedication of a new railtrail passing right by, the market is bound to become even more central to our community, indeed leading all joggers, bicyclists, whole families, students, grandparents, mothers with carriages, and idle strollers to Roma (tomatoes).

The Bloomington Farmers' Market is a vital and integral component of the social and economic fabric of our community. It is an opportunity embraced by thousands each week to experience together the sensual extravaganza of summer's bounty of locally produced foods, flowers, and crafts; to visit and break bread with neighbors; to bask in the warm, morning sunlight with friends while they stroll through the stalls or stand and listen to music; to share together the fun and excitement of special food tastings and competition; to catch up on the local gossip; to celebrate our community. Bloomington is a magnificent community of which to be a part, and it has no finer event than the Saturday Farmers' Market.

The Bloomington Farmers' Market offers an incredible selection of organic produce, cheeses, meat, and baked goods. You can get anything you want, as Arlo Guthrie says. In addition, buskers play all around the Market, drawing in crowds just by the quality of the music. You can see and hear Old Time, Irish, Blues, Rock 'n' Roll music, see percussive dancers on their boards, watch a Chinese erhu player, along with little tots and their siblings, parents, and grandparents grooving to the music. It's a scene that brings out the entire community to engage in this smorgasbord for the senses. I have been to other Markets, and Bloomington's absolutely wins you over and makes you want to live in the community that supports it!

I DO love my farmers' market because I like to support local agriculture. Local businesses of all kinds actually. The BCFM is really one of the "heartbeat" events for our community. A place of gathering, joy, good food, good people, art, and the love of the land. They all come together at market. Our market has been the focal point for revamping our rail to trail system and it continues to grow each year in terms of its offerings. I have lived in Bloomington for almost 30 years and it has been a great to watch our market evolve over time. I look forward to continuing to see it grow, become even more important of a community resource for everyone.

Bloomington Community Farmer's Market can proudly declare itself the largest in the state of Indiana, and it is one of the touchstones of community events throughout the better part of the year. Without fail, the Bloomington Farmer's Market draws scores of people every weekend throughout the summer (not to mention a loyal following throughout the winter months) and takes these opportunities not only to provide fresh plants and produce to the community, but to promote local organizations and events, as well as performing arts and crafts from local artisans. The Farmer's Market is a microcosm of the vast amount of culture -- and sense of community -- that Bloomington has to offer as a city.

The BCFM is "the place to be" on Saturday mornings! Everyone, from the farmers and honey purveyors to the civic organizations and artists, bring their specialties to this vibrant weekly festival of food and fun. You will see people from all walks of life--the mayor and former mayor, the district congressman, your next-door neighbor, IU faculty, friends, family, children and pets. There is a vast array of homegrown and homemade food as well as plants and flowers galore. The Amish kettlecorn booth is a favorite as well as the local coffee shop baked goods and java selections. Bloomington, IN is a fabulous community of warm, talented and friendly folks and many of them converge at the Farmer's Market each Saturday from 8-12. The Hoosier Hospitality is thick as molasses! And the new winding biking/walking trail adjacent to the market is a "site" to behold! Come see for yourselves....

As a volunteer at one of the information tables, I talk with many people who express their enthusiasm and delight at the wonderful variety of food and all the activities that are attached to the markket. For myself, I love being able to support local growers, plus I find the "vibe" contagious - I can't help smiling the whole time I'm there.

It also has created a warm and happy gathering location for citizens of all ages to enjoy not only great locally grown fruits and vegetables, but also local music, arts and crafts, and booths to help and inform the community to important social services projects, and how to participate in local, regional or national government. Doing something good for our environment and world is not about lowering standard of living, but instead about raising our quality of life. The Bloomington Community Farmers' Market does exactly that! Kudos to Marcia Veldman, our community of hardworking farmers, and town's people who support this great idea!

Not only is our farmer's market filled with veggies, herbs, fruits, honey, and other home made goodies, but it is also very entertaining. There are always a few musical groups playing in different parts of the market. Occasionally, you can see dancing, poetry, and other performing arts as well. Finally, there are always some political, non-for-profit, or other activists getting the community mobilized. Our market embodies the activist, artsy, and community oriented spirit of our town.

I believe in supporting local community and locally grown foods that are likely to preserve more nutrients than the store bought items. My kids grew up with Mitch and Eileen's songs and puppets. It is diverse, and offers meat and dairy products in addition to the fruits and vegetables. I wish we can keep supporting it for years to come regardless of the economy.

We've been to lots of different farmers markets all over the U.S. and Canada, and Bloomington has one of the best around. Given the small size of the town of Bloomington, that is doubly impressive. In our Farmers Market, not only can you find a range of produce, products (honey, maple syrup, wool, baked goods, etc.), and plants, many organic, there's also live music, folk-type dancing, other family entertainment, and really terrific kettle corn! If we didn't grow most of our organic veggies and fruits, we'd be at the Market every weekend!
