Bloomington Winter Market opens this weekend

The Bloomington Winter Farmers Market opens this Saturday and runs through March 26. Hours are 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays. It's being held at the Harmony School Gymnasium located at 909 E. 2nd Street in Bloomington.

The site promises a wide variety of meats and produce - including onions, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, lettuce, arugula, kale, chard, spinach, mustard greens, watercress, potatoes, winter squash, sweet potatoes, apples and herbs. In other words, don't think that just because it's January you're doomed to eat canned or frozen veggies.

I'd love to hear from anyone who's checked out this market in the past. Is it worth the drive?

Sorry - I haven't been to your winter market, but I just went to one in Baltimore, and was amazed by all of the produce that was available. Here is my blog post on it:
