Information for 2013 vendors
Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the 2013 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.
