Last Saturday, I finally visited the Bloomington Farmer’s Market. I had always wondered from afar what had separated it from ours. The main thing I noticed right away were the large, permanent structures which the vendors could take cover in on a rainy day. Indianapolis has the vendors supply their own flimsy tents, and for whatever reason, this year has been especially rainy on Wednesdays. The patio on the west end of the market is a bit under-utilized, and I think permanent covers could be constructed there, to finally give people the impression that the city is making a commitment to supplying fresh, local foods.
