As the weather warms up, and things in Michigan begin to grow, many people are anticipating the opening of the Vantage Point Farmer’s Market. Organizers announced that opening day for the 2020 season will be May 30th.
The farmer’s market typically runs on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the season, but this year, they will only have a Saturday market. They are also implementing some safety practices to make shopping as healthy as possible for vendors and guests.
They are asking guests to observe the 6 foot distance between themselves and others by refraining from entering the market between the farmer’s stalls and from either side of stalls and keeping your distance while standing in line. They are also asking guests to wear masks if possible, bring smaller bills to reduce the need for vendors to make change, and not touch items that are for sale. Farmers and vendors will collect the items guests need to purchase.
Visitors to the market should also come alone if possible to limit the number of people shopping at one time, and stay home if they are experiencing any signs of illness.
