This week’s market will feature 10 local vendors offering locally grown produce, handmade soaps, farm fresh meat, and a variety of baked goods.

Previous customers will notice some changes to the market layout and procedures as new guidelines have been created to manage the spread of germs and viruses. You can view a full list of those guidelines below.

Customer Health & Safety Guidelines

  • Stay at home if you or someone in your home are sick.
  • Wash your hands prior to entering the market. A hand washing/sanitizing station will be available at the market entrance. We also encourage customers to wear a face mask.
  • Always maintain a 6-foot distance from others. Sidewalk chalk or tape will be used to delineate proper distances between customers and vendors, and to guide customers through the market.
  • Do NOT touch any produce or product. The vendor will hand your items to you.
  • Limit shoppers to one if possible. A second shopper may wait at the exit to help carry items or a pair of shoppers may separate to pick up items from multiple vendors more efficiently.
  • Limit socializing. Keep your visit short and do not linger, socialize, or congregate inside the market, so our vendors can serve as many customers as possible.
  • Wash all produce before eating.
