We have been monitoring the COVID-19 developments and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to cancel the remaining markets in March on 3/14, 3/21, 3/28/20. We feel this is the best decision to ensure the safety and health of our vendors, shoppers, and staff. Thank you for your understanding.
Customers are encouraged to reach out directly to farmers and other vendors to make arrangements to purchase food. Many vendors offer alternative ways for customers to access local food, such as roadside stands or delivery options.
