The Ashland City Farmers Market is set to open its 2020 season on May 30.
Running through August 29, the market will be open daily from 7am to 7pm, with the formal market being held Saturday evenings from 4pm to 7pm.
It will be closed July 4 and Aug 8.
Setting up under the Lacrosse Pavilion at River Bluff Park at Riverbluff Park, the popular local market will take necessary precautions to ensure the safety of customers and vendors.
Here are some of the things market-goers and vendors can expect:
- All vendors are suggested to wear a face covering (mask, bandana) over the mouth and nose.
- Products from both growers and artisans should be displayed in a way that minimizes patron contact.
- There should be minimal handling of goods by shoppers before purchase.
- If possible, vendors should have a hard table surface that can be sanitized at the front of their booth. This is not a table for display but will serve as an area for exchange of goods and should be sanitized between shoppers.
-Vendors are responsible for supplying their own sanitizer-both wipes and hand sanitizer-and must have these sanitary supplies at each market. Use of gloves for vendors is optional but suggested. If using gloves, they should be changed or sanitized between each customer interaction.
-Payment is requested to be made with minimal contact between vendor and customer. Credit card is the preferred option, with personal check or exact change if necessary.
-Extended conversation is not encouraged.
