Summer time traditionally begins Memorial Day weekend and on Friday May 22nd at 2pm the Lodi Valley Farmers’ Market will begin as well.
Thanks to Dave and Polly’s generous invitation the market will once again be next to Koltes Do-It Center on the “village green” every Friday 2 until 6 through mid-October.
Obviously spring and summer of 2020 is different from past years and “normal” is evolving and being defined. Lodi Farmers Market will have procedures to protect the health and welfare of our vendors, shoppers and greater Lodi community. State guidelines for safe shopping will be in place:
- Vendors will be in one row, strategically distant from each other. Each vendor will be masked and have sanitizing protocol in place. Items will be single bagged.
- Shoppers will be single file, minimally 6 feet from each other and per state health regulations, not allowed to touch produce. Masking is encouraged.
- Market will provide a hand sanitizing station and strictly enforce guidelines.
Fresh local produce, honey, eggs, jams and pickles are on deck. Seasonal items as the gardens produce and crafts when permitted. Lodi market has an outstanding reputation among vendors, so expect to see new faces next to your old friends.
