The City of Bloomington announced Tuesday it will reopen the Community Farmers' Market this weekend, after a two-week suspension due to threats of violence and amid weeks of unrest over a vendor with alleged ties to a white supremacist group.

In a news release, the city says the market will include some new safety measures, including security cameras, increased presence of police and other public safety officials, "market ambassadors" and clearly marked flyering and expression areas.

The City of Bloomington is suspending the Community Farmer's Market for two weeks citing a concern for public safety after recent protests and an arrest over suspected ties between a market vendor and a white nationalist group. 

A Monday press release says the city has identified "increasing threats to public safety."
