Bloomington Winter Farmers’ Market
Saturdays, 9am – 12pm
December 1 to March 30, except December 29 and January 5, when closed for the holidays.
The Bloomington Winter Farmers’ Market is a great opportunity to buy directly from local growers during the winter months. Our cozy indoor market features local products, live music, and a wonderful community. Join us for breakfast and buy local produce, meats, baked goods, dairy—and more!
Products include a wide variety of salad greens, spinach, micro-greens/shoots, eggs, squash, lamb, beef, pork, chicken, cow milk cheeses, baked goods, kale, cabbage, broccoli, garlic, sweet potatoes, apples, honey, milk and yogurt, fresh roasted coffee beans, fresh and dried herbs, breads, soups, plants, tamales, wheat flour, seeds, sauces, yarns, soap, flowers, wreaths, hot breakfast foods, fresh coffee, espresso—and much more.
The Local Growers’ Guild provides administrative support to the Bloomington Winter Farmers’ Market, in a collaborative relationship that helps extend the direct market growing season to the entire year. Our new Market Master is Leslie Burns. Many of you may already know her as the Market Master for the Owen County Farmer’s Market.

The Bloomington Winter Farmers’ Market exists to extend the farmers’ market season and increase the availability of fresh produce and other local products throughout the four seasons of the year. We seek to encourage direct contact between producer and consumer and increase understanding of local food economy issues. We strive to produce and provide the greatest possible varieties of local foods while working together in a cooperative atmosphere to ensure the success of the market.
