The Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market will open its 12th season on Wednesday, June 10th between the hours of 3:00pm to 7:00pm! The Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market has brought families, neighbors, and local food producers together for the past twelve years. They create an atmosphere for local farmers and consumers to support local agriculture. Consumers have the opportunity to support our local economy by buying produce and products from farmers all across Tuscarawas County! In years past, The Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market has opened its doors rain or shine every Wednesday from June-October. This year is a little bit different though. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Tuscarawas Valley Farmers Market has made many changes to it’s policies, much like every other local business. This year the non profit organization has canceled all activities that promote social gathering. 

As included in their press release, the activities include: “cooking demos, live music, food trucks (at this time), Community Partner activities, children’s activities, featured art vendors, food and wine sampling, and seating areas. Additionally, we ask that the 3:00 to 3:30 timeframe be reserved for senior citizens and immunocompromised individuals.”

The organization also included a list of safe practices to ensure the upcoming season is carried out as normal as possible. The practices include:

  • Send one person to do the shopping, if possible

  • Wear a face mask

  • Wash your hands (handwashing stations and sanitizer will be available throughout the market)

  • Allow for at least 6 feet of distance from others, when possible

  • Do not handle the products or produce (vendors will bag them for you)

  • Do not use reusable shopping bags

  • Shop and keep moving

  • Keep the flow of traffic moving in one direction

  • If you have a fever or are not feeling well, please do not attend the Market

With every business having to make sacrifices during this difficult time, the organization is doing its best to accommodate a safe environment for it’s patrons and vendors. As mentioned earlier, the market normally opens its door rain or shine, but this year that will not be the case. Due to social distancing requirements, there stands a chance of cancelations due to bad weather because of not being able to be under the grandstands.
