How to be a COVID-Compatible Farmers Market Shopper
Updated November 2020 for INDOOR Markets
All customers, vendors and staff must wear approved face coverings at the indoor market. Learn more about Minnesota's mask mandate here.
Stay home if you are sick or have sick family members, or have been exposed to someone with a COVID-19 diagnosis.
Handwashing stations, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes are available. Please use them!
Designate one shopper from your household to prevent crowding at the market. Leave children at home if possible.
Be sure to observe 6-foot distancing in lines and in while walking the market.
Allow the vendors to handle your purchases.
If the market reaches its maximum indoor capacity of 130 people, you may need to stand in line for entry so that everyone has room to safely shop. The line will form outside, so be sure to dress warmly.
All vendors accept cash; many accept credit and debit cards. Many vendors have adopted contactless payment methods. If you're low on cash, visit Market Info to purchase tokens accepted same-as-cash by all vendors. $20 minimum; tokens never expire.
EBT guests are welcome to use their food dollars at the market. Inquire at Market Info.
Consider pre-ordering and pre-paying from vendors who offer that service.
The farmers market has three pillars: It's good for farmers, good for your diet, and good for your spirits! This is true even when we can't linger over a conversation or enjoy live music at market. We can't wait to look you in the eye and share a six-foot smile! This won't last forever and we're all in it together.
Free parking is available in lots surrounding the market. From Weaver Lake Road, turn South on Community Center Drive or Vinewood Lane. Parking is available in the main Community Center lot or the Northwest Community Center lot.
Handicapped parking spaces are designated near the East entrance of the market space. Curb cuts are available for those who use mobility devices.
Cash: All vendors accept cash.
Credit / Debit / EBT: Many vendor accept credit and debit cards as well as contactless payment methods. If you need more purchasing power, please visit Market Information to purchase tokens which are accepted same-as-cash throughout the market. $20 minimum purchase; tokens never expire. SNAP/EBT cards are also accepted at Market Info--you may debit any dollar amount from your account and spend it on SNAP-eligible products in the market. Thanks to a grant from Hunger Solutions Minnesota, SNAP customers receive a dollar-for-dollar match up to $10 on each market day.
