Thank you for your interest in sharing your musical talents with our market community! We book musicians each Saturday at our market. All music should be appropriate for an all age event. Bookings must be done in advance through the market coordinator. Musicians will receive payment for their performance via check on the day of the performance.


Bloomington City Farmers Market’s primary purpose is to provide a space for its farmers/vendors to sell and promote their produce and products in a lively, vibrant marketplace. The Market welcomes local musical acts to enhance this atmosphere. We must emphasize that the musicians needs are secondary to the needs of market vendors. Please read the following Market rules and sign before filling out the form below:

• Bloomington Farmers Market requires that all musicians keep the volume level “market appropriate”, meaning music must not interfere with vendors’ ability to communicate with their customers.
• If the band/artist requires the use of a small PA system, the volume must be low enough for surrounding vendors to be able to effortlessly communicate with their customers.
• If the volume level exceeds a Market appropriate level (as determined by the Market Manager), the band/artist must comply and turn down the volume. If the band/artist does not comply, they may be asked to leave and will not be invited back.
• Please be cognizant of how loud your music is. If staff or vendors ask you to turn it down, you must comply.

• Two electrical hookups (1-20 amp 110 VAC circuits) are available for musician’s amplification.
• Musicians must provide their own sound system and power strip. The Farmers Market does not provide any equipment.
• If the musicians’ amplification interferes in any way with a market vendor’s power usage, the vendor’s needs take precedence and the musicians’ power source will be disconnected.

• All events will be held outdoors rain or shine.
• Bloomington Farmers Market provides a tent (10’X10’) to protect from light rain or sun.
• In the event of heavy rain, performance may be moved to a more sheltered space indoors or canceled.
• Musicians will be notified of market cancellations by 7am or as soon as that decision is made.

• Bloomington Farmers Market agrees to pay musicians a completive rate (play time is from 10 am – 12 pm)
• $75 will be offered to solo musicians. $150 will be offered to groups consisting of 2+ musicians.
o If these rates are not appropriate compensation for your time, we understand. Please reach out to the market coordinator who may be able to suggest other performance opportunities.
• Artists are welcome to bring a tip jar and sell CDs; musicians have had great luck with customer generosity!
