The Mission Farmer’s Market is set to return.
The board of the outdoor market has announced that it will commence on Saturday, June 6 at the Welton Common parking lot, located at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Welton Street.
The market will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday until Oct. 3.
“We were happy to hear that BC’s Public Health Officer has declared farmer’s markets in BC an essential service. As a result, it is important to note that all farmer’s markets are having to comply with additional hygienic practices, such as hand washing stations and physical distancing to help ensure protection for patrons,” the board said in a written statement.
“In addition only food vendors, with fresh, frozen or prepared foods, will be allowed at the physical market. No doubt it will have a different look, but the products will of course be of the same expected highest quality, locally baked, made or grown. “
The Mission City Farmer’s Market has also recently set up an online/ virtual market, available for all vendors that are interested in signing on, to display and offer products for sale.
More information on the virtual market is available on MCFM website at missioncityfarmersmarket.com.
