As our community continues to respond to the current COVID-19 crisis, maintaining access to fresh, local, healthy food is a priority for all and is deemed an essential service. This year, the Farmers Market is following strict guidelines  as outlined by the California Department of Public Health in compliance with local and state orders, as well as in an effort to protect the health and safety of all in attendance.

As part of these new protocols, market staff will be wearing masks and gloves and increasing cleanliness procedures including handwashing and disinfecting of surfaces and objects. Additionally, food sampling, community eating areas and music has been suspended.

New online ordering with curbside pickup will also be offered. Orders can be placed by 5pm the day before the market and pick up instructions will be provided. More information about this new service is available at
