COVID-19 Response Update: Farmers markets are essential businesses. We provide a healthy open-air environment for grocery shopping with fewer people coming in contact with your food. We are in the final processes for opening a small, tightly managed farmers market on Saturday, June 6th. Please continue to check back to this page for the most up-to-date information, as we have yet to be approved for opening.

DMWFM Safety and Health Plan:

  • There will be 10' space between each vendor business, no middle row of vendors
  • Single market entrance and exit point regulated by volunteers who will control the number of shoppers allowed into the market to maintain and monitor physical distancing 
  • Market staff, vendors, volunteers AND shoppers must wear face coverings
  • A controlled number of shoppers will be allowed in the market at one time for physical distancing
  • Marks on the road will demonstrate what 6' looks like 
  • DMWFM will provide a hand washing areas as well as hand sanitizer
  • All shoppers, market staff, volunteers, and vendors will be required to wash their hands before entering the farmers market, shopping or purchasing market tokens 
  • A hand sink and sanitizer will be provided at the entrance of the farmers market, the exit of the market and 2 other placements within the market. A market staff only hand sink will be positioned at the information booth
  • Vendors will minimize their displays and offer pre-bagged/portioned food, so shoppers only come in contact with the food they are purchasing 
  • Market staff and vendors will follow a regular cleaning schedule with all surfaces cleaned at least once an hour and with the market iPad cleaned between sales 
  • Vendors and market staff will have one person designated for money handling and a second for food handling or will provide a drop box for the shopper to pay with exact change

DMWFM’s Plan Depends on Your Active Participation:

  • Come to the farmers market with a grocery list 

  • Limit market attendance to one person per household 

  • Wash or sanitize your hands before entering the farmers market 

  • You must wear a face covering to protect market staff, vendors, other shoppers and volunteers

  • Stay a minimum of 6' between shoppers yourself and vendors

  • Purchase your groceries without touching other food, and return home 

  • Food consumption will not be permitted at the farmers market

  • Please use your credit or debit card to pay when possible or pay with a check 

  • Offer to purchase food at the farmers market for friends or neighbors who are not able to attend and remain appropriately socially distanced when you drop off food
