TODAY! Bexley Farmers Market: July 23
Thank you for respecting the guidelines set forth by the Bexley Farmers Market as we
continue in our mission to keep the community safe and our market open! Please
remember that 4-4:30 PM is reserved for vulnerable populations.
Farmers Markets During COVID-19
"In the best of times it is a complicated dance; in the current COVID-19 pandemic time of physical distancing, it’s not just a complicated dance, it’s an entire Broadway production."
At the Bexley Farmers Market, we want to meet and exceed the needs of our community, while maintaining a safe and responsible marketplace for our farmers and food producers. Given the continued challenges presented by the coronavirus, operations will not change beyond July 31, but our location will. We are sincerely grateful to Capital University for the use of their parking lot, but must move after July 31 to accommodate the return of students, staff and faculty.
Stay tuned for more details about an alternate location starting August 6. We are working with the City of Bexley to find the best location for us to complete the balance of our season while maintaining safety protocols for vendors, customers and staff.
In the meantime, take a sneak peak and read more about farmers markets and the challenges presented by COVID-19 in "Assisting Market Managers in the Time of COVID-19."
"People are learning that buying from local farmers during COVID-19 is a much safer way to buy, as the only person handling your food is the farmer."
PS: Remember our insider's tip? Shop the market after 5:30 PM for a cooler, less crowded experience!
Thank you for shopping at the Bexley Farmers Market, and for supporting our farmers and food producers!
This location, and the operational changes and rules, will be in effect through July 31.
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.
