Fall Has Arrived!

Over fifteen delicious varieties of apples were cut-up and out for market-goers to try.

One of the best things about attending Indiana University Bloomington, is the town of Bloomington that comes with the IUB experience. Bloomington is a culturally thriving town, with tons of fantastic restaurants, music events, and other assorted interesting events.

Volunteers cut up pieces of apples for people to taste-test
at the Bloomington Farmer's Market.

This past weekend, I went to check out the Bloomington Farmer's Market. Every weekend, from April to November, local farmers gather their best produce, jams and other assorted products, and fill Showers Common, a courtyard near the Bloomington City Hall.

This week's farmers market featured an apple tasting to bring in the fall season. As an avid apple eater, I was thrilled to read about this event in the student newspaper, the Indiana Daily Student. Local music and performers added to the fantastic atmosphere and of course I had to purchase one of the new flavors of apples I had tried in the Apple Tasting from a local market! When you come to IUB, be sure to attend Bloomington events, as well as all the IU events!
