Update May 7, 2020:
The Cedar Farmers Market is opening as scheduled on May 10th though with many changes in place. We will be using twice the field space while also reducing our vendor numbers to a third of usual capacity (85 vendors down to 25 for opening). All of the products are currently limited to food. Every week you will be able to buy staples such as: fresh produce, bakery items, cheese, coffee, meat, and seafood as well as a rotation of food products such as soups, chai, icecream (pint), fresh salsa, jams, and more.
The area will be cordoned off to provide an even flow of foot traffic, with physical markers on the ground directing customers to line-up in specific areas 2 meters apart.
During this time of global instability it is imperative that we get local crops onto local plates. We cannot afford to rely on international imports, we cannot afford to see locally grown and produced products go to waste, and we must continue to invest in our farms, our fields, and our people for today and for tomorrow’s generations.
April Update: As we look at a rapidly-changing year, please know that we are doing our best behind the scenes to plan for this year.
