The Kelowna farmers market is back to normal, well almost.
After opening at Parkinson’s Recreation Center in limited capacity and without artisans, the Farmers Market is expected to open at its usual location at the corner of Dilworth Dr. and Springfield Rd this Saturday, May 2.
The market has worked with Interior Health to comply with all protocols due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the artisan component will remain closed for the time being.
Buyers will also notice some other changes due to COVID-19. Suppliers have been limited to 30 at the moment and there will actually be two separate market areas to ensure that there are no more than 50 people in each area at any given time.
Farmers licensed to sell supply meat, eggs, fresh produce, baked goods and herbs.
As with most stores, buyers are encouraged to use debit and credit cards rather than cash, and customers are also encouraged to “shop, don’t stop.”
