Greetings. We hope in this difficult time you are doing well, staying home, and finding ways to keep yourself healthy. We want to let you know what the Toledo Farmers’ Market is doing with regard to the safety of both our customers and vendors. Farmers’ Markets have been deemed an essential business, like grocery stores, and we have been working to create the best possible scenario for our customers to attend.
Saturday Market: (what we are doing) We have:
Widened aisles as much as possible to help with social distancing
Removed winter market extension
Opened doors for the summer season
Spread out the vendors to use the whole market giving more space between vendors
Incorporated hand wash stations for customers and vendors alike
Vendors will be wearing masks and gloves to protect customers as well as themselves
Vendors will be limiting the product on display as their floor model and then fill requests from stock that is out of customer reach.
Customers: (what we ask of you)
Refrain from coming to the market if you are not feeling top notch.
Please keep 6 feet away from any other person
Plan to make your visit short and sweet
Highly recommend wearing your own masks and gloves
Please swipe your own credit card and refrain from touching the vendor’s screen
Refrain from touching any produce or product. Allow the vendor to set it before you for bagging
Check with our website, www.toledofarmersmarket.com, for vendors who accept preorders. (work in progress)
Sign up with the farmers’ market for updates (on front page of website).
