Market Newsletter: July 18, 2020

Vol. 6 Issue 12

As many know, farmers markets have been labeled an essential business during this time of lock down.  Our farmers have been working hard to keep our local resident’s homes stocked with fresh produce, meats, cheeses, eggs, honey, coffee and desserts.  The next few weeks we’ll be celebrating the markets with the Buy Local Challenge and then National Farmers Market Week.  Find out more about both below.

Buy Local Challenge
Don’t miss the 2020 Maryland Buy Local Week, July 18th through July 26th! Take the pledge and post your fun finds with the #BuyLocalChallenge on Facebook or Instagram for a chance to win a prize.  Check out the website at https://www.buylocalchallenge.com/ for recipes and more information.

National Farmers Market Week
National Farmers Market Week will be August 2-8 and we really can’t do a lot this year other than ask that you take pictures of your purchases when you get home and on Facebook, Instagram with #LoveMyMarket #FarmersMarketWeek and #FarmersMarketsAreEssential.  Of course, don’t forget to mention where you made the purchases.  😉

We are in need of volunteers to help guide our customers through the market between 8:45am to 12:15pm!  If you or anyone you know would be willing to help for a few hours, please click HERE or email Scarlet at hfmscarlet@gmail.com.  All volunteers must be 18 years or older.

The Market‘s Covid-19 guidelines

  • Please enter the market by the charging station and exit by the back corner of MOM’s.  If you want to reenter the market, please go back to the entrance.  This will help us keep customers socially distanced and our market safely organized.
  • If you are coming to the market for just one vendor, please enter the market by the charging station and follow the guidance of our volunteers.
  • Let the vendors shop for you and keep a distance of 6ft between you and the next customer.
  • Thank you for your patience and following our guidelines.
  • Lastly, please continue to wear your masks.  🙂
