WHY are we open? We are classified as an open air grocery store. Food and agriculture are among those operations classified as ESSENTIAL.
Please come out and support your local farmers and small food businesses. There will be businesses close down... sadly too many. The larger corporations and chains will weather this storm... the small producers however are struggling and will struggle. I know the market cannot supply all your needs, but I do ask please shop us first, shop local, support those working dawn to dusk and beyond.
The benefit for you? Besides ensuring a local food supply continues... fewer hands have touched the products than in the *big box stores*. You are able to look the producer in the eye...
NO VENDOR WILL BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND!!! IT IS AN INDIVIDUAL CHOICE!! Our customers, our community, our farmers, and vendors all depend on our market.
Like the pages of individual market vendors. Several will be taking pre-orders for pick up. The current situation is constantly changing. We will try to keep everyone informed. I suggest you stock up where possible (reasonably) and get contact information from your favorite vendors.
Please reach out to neighbors and see if you can pick things up for anyone. Our market and our community are fabulous!! Let's keep looking out for and supporting each other!
