The Winter Farmers’ Market will be open on Saturday, but it will be outside because of concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Winter Farmers’ Market is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 28. It will be outside the gymnasium at St. Mary’s School at 323 Vermont Avenue in Oak Ridge.
Vendors will be placed at least 10 feet apart, a press release said.
Customers who are seniors or immune-compromised may order ahead of time for curbside pickup, the press release said. Information on how to do that is listed on the market’s website at www.GrowOakRidge.org.
Please order by Friday at noon by calling the vendors directly and telling them what you want. Customers should plan to drive up to the manager’s tent, which will be in front of the main entrance to the gym, pay, and then market volunteers will bring out the order.
There will be no extra programming at the market this week; however, children 12 and under may come to the manager’s tent and get $2 in tokens to spend on veggies.
SNAP/EBT will still be doubled during the market. All tokens should be used by March 28, the last day of the Winter Farmers’ Market.
The Winter Farmers’ Market is produced by Grow Oak Ridge, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving health in Anderson County, TN, by connecting farmers and local foods with the public.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
