Insider tip about living in Bloomington:
On Saturday mornings, go to the Farmer’s Market in the Showers Commons next to the city building on Morton Street. It’s an eclectic mix of local food and entertainment. You can buy locally grown vegetables and pasture-raised meat, eggs, and cheeses from local farmers. You can get a cup of coffee and a delicious pastry from a local vendor, and then listen to local musicians or watch dancers perform. And the market is adjacent to the B-line trail, so when you’re finished shopping, you can take a stroll.
