Bloomington suspends farmers markets over threatsJuly 31, 2019
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton has suspended Saturday farmers' markets in his city for the next two weeks after learning of "threats from individuals who have connections to past white nationalist violence."
The city on Monday announced it was canceling the markets this Saturday and on Aug. 10 because of public safety concerns amid escalating tension between protesters and a vendor alleged to have ties to a white supremacist group.
Hamilton told The Herald Times "we know that there are white supremacist actors and entities engaged in the market and paying attention to the market."
On Saturday, a protester was escorted out of the market by police after she didn't comply with requests to move to the market's designated protest area.
