Metro Health Farm Market Set For 2021 Return
The Metro Health Farm Market is set to return to Metro Health Village this week.
The first market of the 2021 season will be on May 13th, 9a-2p. The market runs Thursdays through the first week of October.
Changes to help in mitigating spread of the novel coronavirus will be held over from 2020 for the start of the 2021 season at the market:
- Booths will continue to be distanced for safety.
- Signage will remind shoppers to social distance.
- Sanitizing stations will be set up.
- Masks will be required on the Metro Health campus for vendors, and even though the market is outdoors, customers are also asked to mask up for safety.
- Shoppers are asked to let vendors handle the product to reduce cross contamination.
- Visitors are also asked to leave re-usable canvas bags at home, as plastic is safer for the vendors at this time.
The Metro Health Farm Market offers a variety of payment options, including major credit cards, Michigan EBT Bridge Cards, WIC Project FRESH, Senior Project FRESH and Double Up Food Bucks.
For 2020 the Farm Market was one of the few events that maintained it's original schedule through the pandemic, although the beginning of last year's first markets were limited to only food sellers, with artisan booths having to wait until later in the season.
