Keep in mind, the Big Lake Farmers Market is taking the following precautions to keep our customers, vendors, and staff safe and healthy:
- Use source control face coverings while indoors and while outside if social distancing is not possible. Face coverings are required while inside of the market space. If you do not have access to a face covering, we will provide you with one.
- No on-site consumption. Please enjoy your food and beverages outside of the market area. This includes prepackaged food samples.
- All customers, staff and vendors should stay home if they feel sick or if a member of their family or production staff are not feeling well.
- A public hand washing station will be available as well as sanitizer at the information booth. Shoppers will be encouraged to wash their hands upon entry and exit from the market.
- Vendor booths will be spaced farther apart to avoid crowding. Vendor displays will be modified to distance vendors and their products from the shopping public.
- We invite seniors, health care providers, and folks with underlying health concerns to shop during the last hour of the market due to reduced attendance at this time.
- For now, the market will be a shopping destination, not a social gathering. If possible, please consider leaving children at home until restrictions ease.
- Shoppers should shop with their eyes and allow vendors to pack their products.
- Special programming (i.e. live music and on-site kids activities) will be suspended until CDC recommendations allow for them.
We will modify this list of strategies as public health concerns ease and as we learn of new best practices. Thank you for understanding and for continuing to support the market and its farmers, crafters, and musicians.
