Bloomington Farmer's Market
The Bloomington Farmers Market is a weekly gathering in which farmers, growers and producers sell their own products directly to the public, allowing consumers to have a direct relationship with the producer of the item they purchase. The market emphasizes quality and freshness.

Information for 2015 vendors
Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the 2015 Bloomington Farmers Market! We are always looking for unique, high- quality local products that best complement our current offerings. Most vendors return to the Farmers Market year after year so space for new vendors is very limited.
New applicants are considered based on several criteria:
- Vendors that will enhance the variety of the market.
- Past participants in good standing with the market.
- Space available.
Please note we are currently not accepting any new produce/flower vendors. We also do not accept any home party or consultant type of businesses. At this time we do not have space for non-profits and community based organizations.
Your interest in being a vendor at the Bloomington Farmers Market is very much appreciated. Call 952-563-8877 or email farmersmarket@BloomingtonMN.gov for more information.
