Farmers Market

Sat. May 9, 2020 9:00 am

Anacortes Farmers Market, Saturday, May 9. 7th St & R Ave. 

Health & Safety.  The Anacortes Farmers Market has worked closely with our partners at the state and with other farmers markets in Washington state to implement a health and safety plan for our site. We ask that you please review the rules below before visiting us and follow them while you are here.Onsite Vendors
This week, our farmers, flower/nursery, and food vendors will be at the market  sell their products on-site.   These vendors have been deemed "essential" by the Governor's Stay at Home order.  Scroll to the bottom of this e-mail to see the list of vendors that will be there tomorrow.Alternative Purchasing Options

It is our highest priority to maintain a safe and clean site to protect our vendors, customers, staff, and volunteers. In order to focus on those requirements,  we will no longer be able to offer a centralized online purchasing option except for the vendors who are non-essential and therefore not permitted to be on site. 

. To better accommodate the customers who found that helpful, many of our vendors will be offering customers the option to pre-order directly with them.  CLICK HERE to find a link to contact information and instructions for placing orders with vendors directly for pickup at market. This resource will be updated over time as we work with our vendors to get this information.  We appreciate your patience as the vendors work to figure out the best ways to take preorders directly from customers.Thank you for your support and flexibility during this dynamic time.

ANACORTES FARMERS MARKET HEALTH AND SAFETY PLAN

Rules for Everyone

  1. Keep a 6’ distance between yourself and other people.
  2. Wear a mask if you have one.
  3. Practice good hygiene - wash your hands with soap and water before you visit, while you are here at one of our handwash stations, and when you get home.
  4. Stay home if you are sick or experiencing symptoms.

Rules for Customers

  1. Follow and obey all signs, markers, barriers, and instructions from market staff or volunteers. We are limiting the number of customers in the market at any one time to promote social distancing.
  2. Do not touch products on display - ask the vendor to get it for you.
  3. Keep pets at home (except registered service animals).
  4. Do not linger - get in, buy your products, and get out with minimal social contact.
  5. No eating or drinking onsite.
  6. Pay using a card or exact change (if possible).
