Farmers Market to be Held March 25 - CDC Rules Will Be Followed
03/23/2020

The City, in consultation with the City Attorney, Hays County, and our Emergency Management Team, will hold the Dripping Springs Farmers Market this week, Wednesday, March 25, at Veterans Memorial Park/The Triangle.

 

The City is continuing with the Market in order to provide access to healthy food which is critical to the community and the people of Hays County, while recognizing that additional measures need to be implemented to protect the residents, vendors, and staff. 

 

The Farmers Market will follow the CDC guidelines, the Governor’s order from last week, and the County’s order related to events. To that end, the City’s Emergency Management team is working with the Farmers Market Manager to ensure that the Market follows these guidelines:

 

  • The Farmers Market will move back to its regular home at the Triangle, so that it is completely outdoors and takes place in wide open spaces.
  • Vendor booths/tents will be spaced so that vendors and participants remain 6ft away from each other.
  • Only food vendors will be allowed to exhibit.
  • Hand sanitizer and handwash stations will be available.
  • There will be no sampling allowed and there will be no self-serve areas.
  • There will be no seating areas or entertainment activities.
  • Visitors will not be allowed to congregate between booths or in any area of the Market.
  • Visitors must wait in their cars until the Market opens.
  • The Market will be following other CDC guidelines, including:
  • If you are sick, you may not attend.
  • People over 65 and those with a compromised immune system are advised not to attend.

According to Farmers Market Manager, Laurel Robertson, “The Farmers Market team is working diligently to ensure a safe shopping experience for the community while continuing to provide access to the food that nourishes our families, sustains the businesses of our producers, and enriches our local economy - especially during challenging times.”

 

The Farmers Market will be held at The Triangle on Wednesday, March 25, from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. If you have any questions, please email farmersmarket@cityofdrippingsprings or call 512-858-4725.
