Bloomington Winter Farmers’ Market

09:00 am to 12:30 pm
Harmony School
http://www.bloomingtonwinterfarmersmarket.com/

With over 30 vendors, you can fill your basket with your favorite market goods all winter. The Market offers fresh fruits & vegetables, mushrooms, ferments, breads & cereals, prepared foods, seeds & plants, cut flowers, meat & poultry, maple syrup, honey, dairy, eggs, jams & sauces, baked goods, locally roasted coffee, soap, holiday items, and more. The Market features live music from a variety of talented local musicians.

Saturday mornings from 9:00a.m. to 12:30p.m.,
December 3rd – March 25th (closed December 24th)

Some shop at the Winter Farmers’ Market for the freshest, tastiest foods around. Others come for a variety of artisanal soaps, candles, flower arrangements, and holiday gifts. Some come for community. Whichever your preference, your support is essential to a strong local food economy. All of our market vendors are local growers and producers from Bloomington and surrounding areas. Come for breakfast, enjoy live music, and find great ingredients for the week. Winter Market is a dynamic experience for the whole family.
The Farmers’ Market Doubles SNAP Benefits!
Farm to Family Fund: Help support the Farm to Family Fund (formerly the Healthful Food for All Fund) with gift cards at the Market’s info table. The Farm to Family fund buys fresh market food at half price every Saturday of Winter Market for donation to the Rise, the Community Kitchen of Monroe County, and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. It’s win-win for farmers and families. For $10 you can provide a dozen eggs for 15 families; $25 provides a 1 week supply of greens for 7 families; $50 provides 2 bushels of apples. A generous and thoughtful holiday gift in honor of family and friends!
Parking: In addition to the Harmony School lot, street parking is free on Saturdays. For an easy covered option, the IU Atwater Parking Garage (entrance is off Woodlawn) is only a block away and free on weekends.

Indiana Maple Syrup Weekend at the Farmstead

10:00 am to 04:00 pm
Hinkle-Garton Farmstead
http://www.facebook.com/HinkleGartonFarmstead

Visitors to the site can tour the sugaring operations and learn about the process, purchase do-it-yourself maple tree tapping kits and books related to maple syrup, and sample refreshments made with maple syrup. Jellies made onsite by volunteers will also be available to sample and purchase. Unfortunately, due to unseasonably high temperatures, the maple syrup production has been negatively affected and bottled syrup for purchase may not be available. Indiana Maple Syrup Weekend is sponsored by the Indiana Maple Syrup Association with participating sugar makers around the state opening their operations to the public for one or both days. The farmstead is owned and maintained by Bloomington Restorations, Inc. and is free and open to the public. Details about statewide sugar camp activities can be found at www.IndianaMapleSyrup.org or on the “Indiana Maple Syrup Weekend” Facebook page.
