Farmers Markets are recognized as having an essential role in securing and supporting the local food supply, and the Perkasie Farmers Market is delighted to announce that we are open Saturdays for the 2020 season.
Our market has been a social gathering for our community for many years and we know we will return to that but, for now we have to ask our customers, vendors and staff to follow a whole new set of procedures. We have developed a Coronavirus Mitigation Plan for Vendors and Customers to help keep shopping safe for everyone. Please be aware and be ready to follow this guidance as you shop at the Farmers Market.
Coronavirus Mitigation Plan:
- A mask or face covering is required to shop at the market.
- You will find farms, food producers, soap and hand made face masks at the market. We are looking forward to bringing our crafters back to the market soon.
- We are asking customers to limit time spent at the market, in order to ease social distancing: do not eat at the market and try not to linger; entering and leaving the market quickly will make it safer for you, other customers and our staff.
- Please pre-order and pre-pay for as much as possible from our vendors. Click here to find ordering instructions from each of our vendors. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to the list for the newsletter.
- If you do not preorder and prepay, please bring small bills and try to pay in the exact amount. Our vendors are working on touchless methods for credit card payments.
- Please send one or two people from your household to shop at the market if you can. Help us social distance.
- The first 45 minutes of the market (9:00am-9:45am) is reserved for seniors, those with underlying conditions AND Pickup of preorders ONLY
- All other shoppers, please shop during the following hours if you are able. This will help with social distancing and help us avoid the 10:30 “just rolled out of bed, it’s Saturday” surge in attendance.
- 9:45am – 10:30am: Surnames beginning with A-H
- 10:30am-11:15am: Surnames beginning with I-P
- 11:15am-12pm: Surnames beginning with Q-Z
- Please be aware of social distancing at all times and stay 6′ away from others, whether standing in line for service, or when moving around the market.
- We will endeavor to have hand sanitizer at various points around the market but, if you can, bring your own to use between vendor visits.
- Please leave your pets at home. Service animals are always welcome.
- Our restrooms are open and will be sanitized hourly during market hours.
We thank our loyal customers in advance for adhering to these necessary safety guidelines. In addition, for the public’s safety, our vendors will also be taking many precautions to keep shopping safe for you and for them. We are looking forward to the start of the season and enjoying another year at the Perkasie Farmers Market.
