The Bloomington Farmer’s Market
Before we moved to Bloomington, one of the things I was most worried about is the food situation, and the availability of fresh, tasty food. Luckily, I had nothing to worry about. Bloomington is not just home to great local food, but has far more international food than I ever would have expected from a podunk town in the middle of nowhere.
However, none of this compares to the amazing farmer’s market that happens every Saturday in downtown Bloomington. The stalls are literally overflowing with the freshest, most beautiful produce I have seen.
Many of the booths are run by Amish, who bring a wide variety of produce and canned goods in from the farms. The Amish have a large community in Indiana, and the fruits and vegetables that come to the market are of the highest quality.
This week, we came home with some gorgeous Cherokee purple Heirloom tomatoes, among other things.
