Bloomingfoods and Monroe County Growers Association to host Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 3rd
Come get your favorite farm goods and local prepared foods! Bloomingfoods and Monroe County Growers Association (MCGA) will host a temporary Farmers’ Market in the old K-mart parking lot adjacent to the East Bloomingfoods at 3220 East Third Street. We expect roughly 30-50 farm and prepared food vendors. The Market will be open from 8:00AM-1:00 pm on Saturday August 3rd with the potential for additional Saturdays as needed until the City of Bloomington reopens the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market.
“Bloomingfoods is proud to support local farmers as they organize alternative farmer’s markets during these difficult times. We are also committed to increasing our purchases of local products and providing updated information for community members via our website and Facebook page. Please join us in rallying around our local producers.”
Vendors must be approved by the MCGA. Interested vendors may contact Bobbi Boos at 812-272-3656 for more information.
All supporters of our local producers are welcome and encouraged to attend. Volunteers will be present to help you find your favorite vendors. Information about other farmers’ market locations will also be available. We appreciate all the work being done by farmers, business owners, and community members to provide alternative avenues for farmers to sell their products. Thank you for your support and patience during these challenging times.
