Covid-19 Market Update
Greetings to our wonderful community! Our vendors are excited to serve you in the wide-open outdoor space with grass underfoot, and with modifications in place to keep everyone safe during these somewhat uncertain times of Covid-19. We found out on May 28th that non-food vendors as well as food vendors are allowed to sell their locally made, baked or grown products and we couldn’t be happier!
Normally, the market is a wonderful place to gather with friends, family and neighbors BUT during these Covid times, “gathering” is now a big no-no. To this end, we can’t have the wonderful live music that we are used to and all food must be taken off site to eat. Vendors must be spaced apart and have line-up markers in place, similar to what we are used to now seeing in grocery stores. We are all now used to social distancing which of course must happen at the market as well. It’s more of a “shop and go” experience, at least for now. If BC continues to do so well with containing the virus, we will hope to have more restrictions lifted as we move forward.
– admittance will be denied to anyone displaying symptoms of illness
– washrooms and bank machine will not be available
– only if possible, please limit the number of family members attending
– there will be plenty of opportunities to hand sanitize
– no touching product unless you intend to purchase it
– your personal bags can only touch yourself and the ground
Please don’t let these rules discourage you from supporting our local farmers, creators and artisans! They are all really excited to see all of your happy faces again, even if it’s just your eyes beaming above a mask! We are all so looking forward to serving you out in the beautiful fresh air. See you soon!

A community treasure…
We take pride in being not only a great market, but a community gathering place with great music, grass under-foot and… woof! we’re dog friendly! We appreciate the customers who support the market each week and the vendors for bringing their time, energy and products to the field every Saturday.
