Local Farmers Markets During a Pandemic

Not sure about you, but I'm so thrilled to see our local farmers markets starting to open back up and get back to some what of normalcy. You will need to adapt to changes made at each market; such as tape around the tent preventing you from touching anything, your favorite food vendors preparing everything in pre-made packaging and no pets allowed. We have to remind ourselves that these measures are for our own safety. You may also notice not all the same vendors you are used to seeing have returned, yet. Most of the farmers markets at this time are for produce and pre-packaged goods so some of the craft vendors are not back yet. But keep checking back because every week markets are adapting to the ever changing environment.
