What to bring: a list of possible fruit or vegetable items to purchase until your next market visit and a reusable bag or bags to carry your purchases.
Arrive early for best selection or late for a potentially discounted selection.
Take a walk around the market before making purchases to get an idea of what is available from the vendors. There will be multiple vendors selling fruits and vegetables.
Compare what is available to your list and select items to purchase.
Unlike in the grocery stores, you make your purchases at each vendor booth – there is not a single “check-out” area.
Questions you can ask vendors:
What are some ways to prepare a fruit or vegetable they may be selling?
Where were the fruits and vegetables that they are selling grown?
How were their fruits and vegetables grown?
When were they picked or harvested?
What will you have available next week?
The Market has widened aisles and the space between vendors to better enable social distancing. Vendors are required to wear masks or a cloth face covering. Food demos and sampling are not being offered.
We ask that customers stay home and not return until they are free of fever for at least 72 hours without fever-reducing medication and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath) and, at least 7 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
We encourage shoppers to prioritize only essential food purchasing and discontinue social gatherings.
We encourage shoppers to send only one member from each household to the market in order to curtail crowds.
We encourage shoppers to practice the recommended 6’ social distancing from one another while at the market.
Please refrain from touching any products, rather allow the vendor to select and bag products you wish to purchase.
Please wash your hands frequently. Follow CDC recommendations for doing so. We have hand sanitizer, paper towels, gloves, and masks available for your use.
Please leave your reusable bags and materials in the car at this time. The vendors will use only new plastic bags for your purchases.
Wear a mask or cloth face covering per CDC guidelines.
When possible, order directly from farmers and vendors for delivery or pick-up.
