We are a local, producer-only market promoting sustainable farming practices that support healthy soil, produce, pastures, animals, people and local communities.
Winter Farmers Market Coronavirus Update:
WE ARE OPEN
The WFM Committee along with the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance is working diligently to brainstorm ways for the Winter Wrightstown Farmers Market to stay as safe as possible, viable and profitable for everyone as we all try to navigate through this very uncertain time. The good news is that the Wolf Administration had deemed farmers markets in PA as ‘essential’ and the PA Dept of Ag has agreed they should stay open during the coronavirus pandemic.
This means the WFM WILL be open for the April 11th and April 25th markets, unless we hear otherwise. Be sure to check regularly here on the website, the newsletter, Facebook and Instagram for updates and changes to these procedures.
Information for the Next Market as of 3/23/2020
1. NEW WINTER MARKET HOURS: 9:00 AM - 12 PM.
If you are a senior citizen or have underlying health issues, come shop the market early from 9-10 am!
2. THE MARKET WILL BE OUTSIDE (on the grounds of The Anchor Church). We will create a functional layout and space out vendors from one another. We will also space out the customer lines as much as possible, along with your help.
3. PRE-ORDER AND PRE-PAY when possible.
4. Please have only one person from your household shop the market and pick up your pre-ordered food to keep crowds at a minimum.
5. Customers may not touch any produce or products until purchased. Only producers and their staff are permitted to do so.
6. The bathrooms at The Anchor Church are for vendors only.
7. Please BRING YOUR OWN hand sanitzer and sanitizing wipes.
8. Please stay home if you are feeling sick at all.
HANDLING MONEY TRANSACTIONS:
For Credit Card Use: Please wipe your card first with a sanitizing wipe, swipe your card yourself if possible, and wipe it again after the swipe. Use a wipe on your finger if need to sign anything.
For Cash Use: Cash exchange is strongly discouraged. However, if you must, do not hand cash directly to the vendor. Rather, find out how much your goods are ahead of time, put your money into an envelope with your name and the amount. Put it into a box which the vendor will provide when you pick up your order. We are asking vendors to provide change with ‘old cash’ from prior to the epidemic. Not all vendors will have ‘old cash’ so find out ahead of time.
Vendors: In addition to these steps, vendors will be following safety guidelines as well, using clean gloves and changing them frequently throughout the morning, sanitizing surfaces often, offering sanitizing wipes at vendor booths when available, having one person handling money and another handling product. We will also be spacing vendors out along the Church driveway in order to adhere to social distancing and reduce crowding.
As you know, things are changing hourly, and even the best laid plans can be affected by new updates. We will do whatever we can to keep this market open and functioning in some capacity as we finish out the winter season and the start of the regular season. Please check back regularly here, Facebook, Instagram and the Newsletter prior to the market for any updated information. Also check on our vendors' social media platforms and websites for updates.
