City's Tuesday Farmers' Market Opens June 5

Bloomington, Ind.—The City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation’s Tuesday Market, a weekday version of the popular Saturday Farmers' Market, opens for the 2018 season June 5 from 4–7 p.m. at Sixth and Madison Streets, next to Bloomingfoods Near West Side.

Tuesday Market takes place every week through the end of September. Admission is free.

Fresh-from-the-farm products anticipated to be available the opening day of Tuesday Market include beets, green beans, arugula, asparagus, cabbage, chard, green onions, lettuce, radishes, salad mix, spinach, strawberries, eggs, flower bouquets, bedding plants and more.

Each week’s Tuesday Market features live entertainment by Bloomington-area musicians from 5–6:30 p.m. Next week’s scheduled performer is Entwyned, playing lively folk music.

Tuesday Market farm vendors include Graber's Produce, Living Roots Farm and Sustainable Living Center, Olde Lane Orchard, and Pope Family Farm.

Prepared food vendors include Sazon, Cup and Kettle, Primally Inspired Eats, and Wild Alaska Salmon and Seafood (at Tuesday Market June 19, July 17, Aug. 21 and Sept. 18).

The Tuesday Market doubles SNAP (food stamp) dollars again in 2018. Food stamp shoppers can bring their food stamp cards to the Tuesday Market and use them to buy “Market Bucks.” Market Bucks are available in $3 increments, and can be used just like cash at the Tuesday Market to buy food stamp-eligible farm products. For every $3 in food stamp benefits exchanged, the Market will give $6 in Market Bucks. Draw up to $18 in food stamp benefits, and receive up to $36 in Market Bucks!

Metered parking ($1 per hour) is available on the streets surrounding the Tuesday Market. Tuesday Market shoppers can also park for free in the City Hall parking lot at Eighth and Morton Streets after 5 p.m. The Tuesday Market is one block south of City Hall. Parking is also available in the parking garage at Seventh and Morton Streets for free for the first three hours.
