What does it mean to be a good farmers market citizen during COVID-19? Beyond donning a mask and social distancing, it’s critically important that you shop with your eyes, not your hands. Please allow your farmer to select your items for you. Point to what you want. Please do not handle the produce! Our hands carry germs which can be transmitted to produce. Thank you for being diligent about this!
Also, as you enter and exit the market, please follow posted signs and placards. Enter on one-side and exit on the other. Chalk on the ground at the rear entrance, and caution tape, divides the entrance and exit. We added this entrance for your convenience because it is near the car park. This week several guests came in through the out door and vice versa! As Governor Beshear says, “You can’t be doing that!” Traffic is one-way only at this entrance/exit.
Also, the entrance and exit near Shelbyville Road are in two separate locations. Please help us by using them correctly. Guidelines set by our governing body, Kentucky Department of Agriculture, stipulate that we limit attendance and keep accurate occupancy counts. Our volunteers are working hard to do this. When you come in through the out door, the side, and through the caution tape, we struggle to keep our number of shoppers within recommended guidelines and thus, struggle to keep each other safe.
We are so glad to have you at the market! Please follow the guidelines, signs, and placards which are established for your safety. As always, if you don’t want to walk, order in advance and use the Drive-Thru on Church Way off of Browns Lane. Thank you!
