continue in our mission to keep the community safe and our market open! Please

Farmers Market Returns to Dawson Today
The Bexley Farmers Market has returned to its home on Dawson Avenue, but now spread across two blocks, from Main Street to Sherwood, and Sherwood to Bryden. Sherwood is accessible to automobile traffic, as normal.
If you choose to visit the Bexley Farmers Market, the market asks you to follow these strict, preventive measures to keep yourself, your farmers and food producers, and your community safe:
If you feel ill or at all unwell, do not enter the market.
Maintain 6’ social distancing at all times.
NO MASK. NO ENTRY.
One adult from each household, please.
The market is limiting the number of people in the market space at one time. While you wait for entry, be respectful and allow for safe distancing between you and other customers.
The market is one way traffic only. If you forget something, please return to the queue for reentry.
Do not touch any products. When you have identified the product(s) you want to purchase, ask the vendor to collect and package the goods for you.
Do not linger or socialize so that all customers have the opportunity to shop.
Limit use of reusable grocery bags due to uncertainty surrounding surface contamination and life span of the virus.
When possible, pre-order directly from vendors to limit the need to exchange currency onsite.
No pets in the marketplace.
Farmers Markets = Safer Food Shopping
“There are benefits to visiting a farmers market in light of coronavirus in terms of the fact that you’re outside, there’s fresh air moving and the supply chain is shorter,” said Yvonne Michael, an epidemiologist at Drexel University School of Public Health.
Although it's too early to scientifically prove that shopping at farmers markets is safer, there are already clear health benefits to markets staying open, not least of which being that a shorter supply chain allows for more stability while grocery stores are being challenged to keep items in stock."
