COVID-19 Resources & Updates for Farmers Markets

COVID-19 Support & Resources for Farmers Markets

(Updated May 6, 2020)

On Friday, April 24th, the Agency of Agriculture, the Department of Health and the Agency of Commerce & Community Development released updated guidelines for farmers markets that largely reflect those put forward by NOFA-VT, and - critically - support access to local food for customers using 3SquaresVT/SNAP benefits. We have continuously advocated for the safe operation of farmers markets during the COVID-19 crisis, and we are grateful to the administration for putting out clear guidance that will meet the needs of community members and support farmers during this critical time of year.
