Farm Market May – October

The Rockford Farmers Market will be opening on May 2, 2020 and will be open every Saturday from 8am-1pm through October 31, 2020. The Farmers Market is located in the South Squires Parking Lot off Main St.

 

Updated Shopping Guidelines & Recommendations

Due to COVID-19, we are taking extra precautions and following National and State guidelines to ensure the safety of both customers and vendors. Because of these guidelines, this years Farmers Market will be a little different, but the ability to buy fresh produce and high quality food products will remain unchanged.

In an effort to promote social distancing and fulfill State guidelines on capacity, we will be limiting the number of shoppers in the market area.  Please stay 6ft. away from other shoppers and utilize the X’s on ground when waiting in line. Please do not congregate. If you are able to wear a mask, please wear one.

We are also restricting how many vendors we are allowing at this time to be able to allow for adequate space between vendors. You can see a full list of vendors we have at this time on the map at the bottom of the page.  

We will have one entrance/exit to the market located off of the parking lot.

Because we are limiting the number of people we are able to allow into the market area, we are asking that only one person from each household attend the Farmers Market. We are also asking that you not bring your dogs at this time.
