COVID-19 Message from the Baker City Farmers Market Board

We care about your safety first, and are implementing significant measures to help protect the health of our customers, our vendors, and our community. With your help, we were able to safely operate during 2020.  We will continue to follow all applicable local, state and federal laws, and the Oregon Farmers Market Association's guidance for farmers markets across the state.  These measures were designed to comply with state and local regulations and are subject to change. Please check back often for updates on 2021 rules and heed all signs at the market. Thank you for helping us stay open and stay safe! At this time, we must:
  • Space vendor booths 6-10 feet apart. 

  • Cancel music, kids programming, special events, and communal seating until further notice.

  • Require all hot food and drinks to be sold as ‘to-go’. No consumption on market premises. 

  • Cancel food sampling until further notice. 

  • Regularly sanitize all high-touch areas with bleach or alcohol solution.

  • Not allow vendors or staff to be present at the market if feeling any symptoms of illness. We also encourage customers who have any symptoms or who believe they may have been exposed to the virus to stay home.

  • Vendors will pre-package as much as is reasonable to eliminate handling of produce at the market.

  • Vendors will have hand sanitizer available to customers at checkout.

  • Require vendors, staff, volunteers and shoppers to wear face coverings.

  • We ask shoppers to remain 6 feet apart at all times.

  • If possible, send only one member of your household to shop at the market.

  • Come prepared with a list of items to decrease the amount of time spent at the market.

  • For everyone’s safety, we ask shoppers to point to the food item you want. The vendor will package it up for you. If you touch it, you buy it!

  • Please, please, please wear a mask, bandana, or even an old T-shirt over your mouth and nose!

  • Leave your dog at home. Only service animals are allowed at the market right now!

  • Read signage at the market and follow instructions – Please use the two entrances at the market.

  • After completing your purchases, please do not linger in the market space.

 

We will continue to do everything we can to make our market the safest source of fresh, local food possible. We need your help to make that happen. Thank you for your support and for keeping us open to continue to serve our community!
