Local Southeastern Farmers’ Markets to Support

Going to your local farmers’ market is a great way to get delicious local produce and goods and support local farmers. This year, your weekend trip will look a little different than it did in the past due to new COVID19 regulations. Here are some guidelines and tips to help keep you safe while you shop. Opening dates are subject to change without notice, so please double check market details before attending.

Shopper Guidelines

  • Do not visit the farmer’s market if you are sick or a member of a high-risk group.
  • Wear a mask or cloth face covering to protect both yourself and others.
  • Do not shop in groups. It’s best to send one person to the market to shop for your entire household.
  • Make a shopping list to increase the speed and efficiency of your trip. As pleasant as it might seem, now is not the time to linger at the market. Write your list down on paper so that you can throw the list away after you are done shopping.
  • Avoid using your cell phone at the market (this increases your safety by ensuring you are not transferring germs from the market onto your phone).
  • Leave your pets at home.
  • Always maintain a social distance of at least six feet while shopping and waiting in line.
  • Follow instructions and rules set up by individual markets to maintain distancing and traffic flow.
  • Do not touch produce. Most markets will likely require vendors to fulfill orders, so verbalize your request and they will pack up items for you.
  • When exchanging money with a vendor, place money directly on the counter when paying rather than handing it to the vendor. Do not touch your face after a monetary transaction. Wash your hands as soon as possible.
  • Be patient. Be kind. Relax and wait your turn.
