This Saturday kicks off the first Summer Market of the season, which means the Market will open an hour earlier. Our Summer Market runs every Saturday, May-September from 9:00AM-1:30PM. While May is not technically summer, it does bring the promise of longer and warmer days, and bountiful produce. Though there have been some unseasonably hotter days (we’re looking at you 80 degrees day this April) this season, it has also been a really slow start to the growing season for many of our farmers due to the extremely cold nights in early spring. You may not see some of your favorite farmers at the first market as they are still waiting on crops to come in, however you can expect to see them in the coming weeks.
We have some new and returning favorite vendors joining us this season, but before we share with you the great additions to the market we want to take care of a couple of housekeeping notes:
Yesterday the CDC released their new guidelines for mask-wearing for vaccinated people. While the market is outdoors it can become crowded, especially on nice days. With that said we want to remind folks that masks are required for attending the market whether or not you are vaccinated. We have extra paper masks at the Info Booth if you forget yours.
There is no on-site dining in the Market. Due to COVID dining restrictions the market has suspended on-site dining until further notice. Please do not walk through the market while eating as it would prevent proper mask-wearing. We ask that you help support our amazing food vendors by ordering food and taking it to go with you.
We love dogs, (truly, we do!) but not in the Market. Unless your dog is a service animal we request you not bring them to the market. If your dog is small enough to be carried or is in a stroller that is fine as well.
Warm weather brings more crowds to the market. Our staff is working tirelessly to manage lines and keep the market running smoothly and safely. We appreciate your participation in these trying times as well, by planning your visit at non-peak hours. The market can be quiet after 11:30 with still plenty of items available. We are also excited to welcome Masa (more info below) to the Market and their pickup and delivery services that will make it easier to shop the market and avoid the crowds.
We can’t wait to see you this Saturday!
