By Melissa Shrader Editor/Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid May 7, 2021

It's that time again! Farmers Markets are opening up from early May through June and running till the end of September to early October. I love summer farmer's markets. I know the products are fresh, local, and I can ask any questions directly to the farmers and producers. 

Get out and find your favorite market, stand, CSA or stand.

Here is a list of new modifications most Markets have rolled out:

- If you are sick, stay home to protect others.
- Please wear a face mask when you are at the market.
- Wash or sanitize your hands upon entering the market.
- No customer handling of products.
- Do not place your personal bags on vendor tables.
- All vendors and staff must wear masks and gloves.
- All vendors must have hand-washing stations or hand sanitizer on hand.
- Any prepared foods must be “to-go” and cannot be consumed onsite.
- No seating or tables will be available for eating or socializing. Do not linger. Please socialize outside of the market area.
- The market will have a one-way flow. Please pay attention to signs and follow the directional flow.
- No more than two customers at a time at any vendor booth.
- Vendor booths are spaced six to eight feet apart.

Current events mean the landscape can change daily. We are doing our best to serve the farmers and vendors who rely on direct market sales for their livelihood and provide our community with the freshest, healthiest food available while considering the safety and health of everyone involved.

The short supply chain of local food is now more important than ever, and we will continue to strive to bring those products to you in the safest and most effective way possible.
