The City of Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market, recently listed in USA Today as one of the top destination Markets in the country, has been a Bloomington tradition since 1975. It has grown with the community while staying true to its roots as a grower-only market.

The Parks Foundation is happy to announce the Friends of the Farmers’ Market Fund! With this fund, donors have the opportunity to enhance market events like the free Heirloom Tomato Tasting, Soup Tasting, Salsa Contest, and chef demos. Additionally donors can help foster local food systems that are healthy, sustainable, and secure. Finally, the market helps low-income people increase access to fresh, healthy, locally grown food. A tax-deductible gift helps the market broaden its impact and keeps it a vibrant community asset for decades to come.

Various premiums will be offered to the donors, including car decals, totes, and stainless travel mugs with the Friends of the Farmers’ Market logo.
