In response to COVID-19, Farmers Markets across the nation continue to maintain modifications to keep customers, vendors, staff, and volunteers safe.
Following is a list of some of the changes:
Self-Screening Health Checklist:
All staff, vendors, and volunteers will be required to self-screen with a set list of health questions before they enter the Market.
Plan ahead for shopping
Customers are being encouraged to plan ahead and bring a shopping list for the Market. Click the link below for a list of vendors and products that will be at the Market on Sunday, June 6.
City staff are required to wear masks. The Market encourages customers and vendors to wear a mask as well.
Auburn Famrers Market Layout – Go with the flow
The Market site is still at Les Gove Park, just off of 12th Street, slightly east from where it’s been pre-covid.
There is just one entrance and exit to the market and a one-way flow of customers through the Market. If needed, the waiting line outside the market will be clearly marked for physically distancing and clear signage will guide customers through both the waiting line and the Market.
Vendor stalls are spaced six feet apart and markings on the ground indicate six feet from each vendor booth to help guide physical distancing requirements. Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance and exit along with a hand washing station at the Market Informational Booth.
SNAP & EBT
The Market will continue to accept EBT and will be matching those EBT funds with SNAP Market Match. The EBT booth will be near the entrance of the Market for customers using EBT to get their tokens and then shop.
The above is an announcement from the City of Auburn. The Auburn Examiner has confirmed the content of this announcement, but details are subject to change.
