Area farmers and local businesses are eligible to apply for the 50th anniversary Bloomington Community Farmer’s Market. Applications are open until 5 p.m, Feb. 21. 

Eligibility for farm vendors to set up booths requires residency and active participation in their goods production in Indiana. There is a $20 application fee for farmers. The City of Bloomington evaluates business owners and vendors looking to sell prepared food and beverages at the market; the criterion is based on the use of local products, customer satisfaction and one's menu, according to the City of Bloomington website. There is no application fee for food and beverage vendors. Businesses in Bloomington are given preference.
