Market Best Practices
Canterbury’s Farmers Market has always been about supporting our local vendors and providing the community the chance to purchase fresh, local produce. Yes, this year will be very different due to COVID-19, but our number one mission is to still provide a safe atmosphere for all of our vendors and guests. We ask that each visitor wears a mask while shopping for the safety and protection of all. Vendors participating in the market are also taking their necessary precautions to supply their food safely.
We are looking forward to our 14th year in season in the next few weeks! The market will remain open during our normal hours from 4-6:30 PM each Wednesday, starting with our Opening Day on June 3rd! There will be our regular volunteers ready to help our customers and vendors each week while they’re doing their shopping and setting up shop. You can also expect a live music performance each week… what is a Canterbury Farmers Market without live music?!
To run the market this summer in sync with our Canterbury flair, we will have some guidelines in place to still support our local food system all while providing a friendly, efficient, and safe atmosphere!
This will be a walk through market with options for limited curbside pickup for pre-ordered items.
All customers will be encouraged to sanitize hands before entering the Market. Hand sanitizer will also be available at the Market table.
Numbers of customers in the Market area and flow of traffic will be controlled as needed to maintain social distancing. Social distancing will be enforced with friendliness!
There will be no special events. Prepared foods will be to-go only and not eaten on site. Music will be placed at the entrance to the Market.
We recommend one person per family and that kids be kept at home. When that is not possible, you must keep your kids with you at all times and maintain social distancing. No pets allowed.
Volunteers working at the Market will wear masks. Hands will be sanitized before and after helping any vendor set up.
We will continue to sell market tokens which will be properly sanitized.
There will be prominent posters to remind customers about best practices.
