Owen Sound Farmer's Market To Reopen

Owen Sound | by Claire McCormack  

The market will be open while maintaining COVID-19 restrictions Saturday.

The Owen Sound Farmers' Market is set to reopen this Saturday, with new hours of 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The market will be different than it was before the COVID-19 Pandemic.  

The Market Board is asking people to spend only enough time to make their purchases.

There are no public seating areas, and people will not be permitted to gather and visit as they did in the past.

To meet physical distancing guidelines, the Market Board asks that just one family member attend if possible, rather than groups.

They say physical distancing and hand sanitizing protocols are mandatory, and the number of people in the market space at any one time will be controlled.

Masks are optional.

They say people should enter the market through the west road into the market square (where 1st Avenue used to exit).
The traffic will flow around the west side of the pavilion, down the east side, and into the market building, where there will be nine vendors. The exit is through the south side doors of the market.

 The online shop, which was launched early in May, will continue operating for those who prefer to shop online and stop by the market to pick up their purchases.
There will be a separate pick up door on the south side of the market.
Instead of waiting in cars to have a delivery brought over to them, customers can now to go to the 8th Street door, which is to the east of the exit, to pick up their purchases.
