The 45th season of the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market will kick off this Saturday in Showers Common.

The market, located next to City Hall, will be open from 8 a.m. through 1 p.m. each Saturday through September, according to a press release.

Opening day festivities will include the first of a series of conversations called “City at the Market,” a health fair and a powwow dance exhibition.

The Farmers’ Market will continue to double up to $18 in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits this season, according to the release.

For every $3 in SNAP benefits, shoppers will receive $6 in Market Bucks.

Free Saturday parking is available north of City Hall in red permit spaces and in IU EM-S spaces.
