COVID-19 Market Shopping Alternatives

During the COVID-19 crisis, our farmers markets remain OPEN, but we are implementing practices to ensure the safety and hygiene of all shoppers and vendors.

Pre-Order & Pick-Up Options

In an effort to reduce customers’ time spent at market, better meet demands, expedite transactions, and limit currency exchange, vendors are offering pre-order + pick-up options at market.

Local Line

At two of our markets, we are offering one-stop online shopping through Local Line. Order a variety of products from multiple vendors at once for pick-up at the market!




At two of our markets, we are offering timed reservations to enter the market. Reservations are not required, but are encouraged for shoppers who would like to bypass the walk-in line to enter the market. Reservations are limited to one person per party, but you are welcome to bring another person from your household to accompany you. Reserve your shopping times:
