We'll have everything you need for your weekend plans and your weekly planning! Meat, veggies, fruit, bakedgoods, spirits, cheese, flowers, pickles, and more. Plus it's PEACHseason so make some cobbler to celebrate! Here's a great recipe that seems to hold up very well to a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
We are sending along a BIG THANK YOU for shopping with and supporting us all season. This has been an unprecedented year, to say the absolute least. We hope that we are providing a bit of consistency and routine. The farmers market is a place of comfort during these weird times.
WEEKLY SAFETY STATEMENT
We need to remind you how necessary it is to wear masks while shopping with us. Many of our vendors have a "no mask = no service" signs at their booth. This is for their safety, as well as yours. Numbers are rising across the country. People are starting summer travel. We come in contact with many customers each week. If one of us gets sick that means it's an entire business, and possibly the farmers market, that goes into quarantine for a minimum of 2 weeks. So WEAR YOUR MASKS when you shop!

DOWN TO BUSINESS:
1: Many of our vendors are offering pre-order pickups through their websites and social media pages. THIS is your best way to secure what you want at market AND grab-n-go.
2: SOCIAL DISTANCING rules are IN EFFECT! Keep 6ft between you (or your group) and others ESPECIALLY while waiting in line. Know that our vendors are doing the BEST that they can to keep the lines organized and moving quickly, while also tending to each and every customer. Please remain patient!
3: We encourage our OLDER and IMMUNE-COMPROMISEDcustomers to shop with us during the morning hours. 9AM and 10AM is our SLOWEST time-- this is when we think it would be safest for you!
4: MASKS are an ABSOLUTE NECESSITY to shop at the HFM. It looks bad for us if you're not following the rules! Aside from not being a good neighbor, it has the potential to shut us down. So keep them on while shopping and interacting with other customers and our vendors.
5: The newsletter will mostly be devoted to reminding you of the PRECAUTIONS and PROTOCOLS we MUST follow in order to continue operating. We will be sneaking in some extra special info from time to time about what you can find weekly from various vendors and recipes we love!
6: SNAP/EBT machine is at the Scarecrow Farm tent in the St John's Church lot.
