COVID-19 and The Market
With farmers' markets being deemed an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic by the BC Centre for Disease Control, our summer markets will continue on. Farmers markets are a vital aspect of community food access, rather than a social event.
Salmon Arm's weekly Wednesday markets will still be held from 2-5pm at Uptown Askew's. We have made a number of adaptations in light of these exceptional circumstances. It is very important for us all (vendors and customers alike) to follow the hygiene and safety guidelines being recommended in public spaces, explained below.
The Revelstoke Farmers' Market is now held at Centennial Park (down the hill) every Saturday from 8am to 1pm. This new location allows ample space for vendors & customers to maintain social distancing. The market is food only (for the time being) and sanitation stations are set up to reduce the possible spread of germs.
These safety measures will likely affect the flow and speed of transactions at the market, and we ask for your understanding and patience. We need to look out for one another.
During these uncertain times, we are doing our best to continue to provide our community with access to healthy food. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Both the Salmon Arm & Revelstoke markets have switched to on online market platform. We are now only accepting online orders to be picked up at market - we will no longer be setting up our stand for customers to shop from (for the time being).
