Mayor at the Market Returns to the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market

Bloomington, Ind.–Mayor at the Market is a community outreach program that invites Market-goers to interact with the mayor and various department heads from the City of Bloomington government. Most Saturday mornings, either Mayor Hamilton, Deputy Mayor Don Griffin, or one of nineteen department heads will be at the Farmers' Market to answer resident questions and discuss issues of interest in the city. From the arts to potholes - any city-related topic you are interested in is up for discussion. This is a great opportunity to have an informal conversation and connect with the city leaders working for the residents of Bloomington. So pull up a lawn chair, take a little break from your shopping, and spend some time chatting about the city you call home.

The Bloomington Community Farmers' Market opens for the 2022 season on Saturday, April 2 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at Showers Common, 401 N. Morton Street next to Bloomington's City Hall. Mayor John Hamilton and Deputy Mayor Don Griffin will both be at the first market of the season, ready to greet and chat with the Bloomington community. Find them by looking for the Mayor at the Market signage on the north end of the market next to the Parks Department tent. 

Throughout the market season, times and featured guests vary and will be announced in advance of each event. Like and follow the Farmers' Market on Facebook at, or subscribe to the Market's weekly e-newsletter at, to see which city official will be at the Market while you’re doing your weekly market shopping. See you at the Market!
