The Lane County Farmers Market officially began their regular season last week under statewide Coronavirus restrictions. The market is considered an essential service and is open for business, but with a few changes. 

 

Vendors are spread across two Park Blocks in downtown Eugene to accommodate physical distancing guidelines. There are no samples being handed out and most produce is pre-bagged.

 

Operations manager Tawnia Platt-Ross says roughly a third of vendors opted to stay home this year. 

 

“It’s a different kind of market. It’s not a social market. It’s to come in, shop and get out kind of market. Just to get business done.”

 

9-11 am is designated for high risk shoppers. For those not wanting to venture out or unable to find their favorite vendor, a list of CSA subscriptions and delivery options can be found on Lane County Farmers Market website.
