TC To Open Physical Farmers Market Saturday, Online Market Will Continue Wednesdays
By Beth Milligan | June 9, 2020
The Sara Hardy Downtown Farmers Market will open this Saturday (June 13) for in-person sales at its usual location in Lot B between Cass and Union Streets along Grandview Parkway in downtown Traverse City.
The physical market will operate from 7:30am until noon with socially distanced vendors. Customers are asked to wear masks, honor social distancing, and be prepared for potential lines/waits. A maximum of 300 customers will be allowed in the market at any given time. Vendor tables will be kept clear and sanitized; customers will not be browsing products on tables but rather telling vendors what they'd like, with vendors selecting the products for them. Vendors will be wearing masks.
The virtual version of the farmers market will also continue with new ordering deadlines and pickup times. Pickup will now be on Wednesday evenings from 5pm to 8pm in Lot B starting on June 17. Online ordering for pickup will open on Thursdays at 10am starting this week, with an ordering cutoff of Mondays at 10am.Comment
