All vendors will follow the state sanitation guidelines regarding farmers markets:
– Food samples will not be served, and cooking demonstrations will not be allowed.
– Vendors will maintain a 10-foot distance from one another.
– All vendors will wear food safe serving gloves and will designate one worker to handle payment.
– We recommend that vendors wear face masks.

In order to allow the maximum number of community members to visit the market, loitering and social gatherings will not be permitted. We ask that you please purchase your products and promptly exit the parking lot for others to easily access parking spAots. Animals will not be allowed to attend the market and high-risk community members and those feeling ill should also not attend. Mask are not required when a distance of 6 feet cannot be maintained.
We look forward to seeing everybody again at the Harvest Market while still enforcing social distancing and sanitation guidelines.
