Even in the depths of winter, fresh, locally-grown produce can be found at the Winter Market.

The Bloomington Winter Farmers Market exists to extend the farmers market season and increase the availability of fresh produce and other local products throughout the four seasons of the year. The Winter Market is run by the Local Growers Guild, a cooperative of farmers, retailers and community members dedicated to strengthening the local food economy in Southern Indiana.

They seek to encourage direct contact between producer and consumer and increase understanding of local food economy issues. And they strive to produce and provide the greatest possible varieties of local foods while working together in a cooperative atmosphere to ensure the success of the market.

There is a wide variety of produce available, including salad greens, spinach, broccoli and garlic. Products such as eggs, honey, and milk are available as is meat such as lamb, beef, pork and chicken.
