Walk-through market returns

Suffolk Tourism announced Tuesday that the traditional walk-through Farmers’ Market will return this Saturday.

From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. July 4, customers may shop and make on-site purchases from vendors offering garden-fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams and jellies, meats and poultry, flowers and other horticulture items, plus personal care products. Customers may also continue to contact vendors directly to pre-order items for Saturday pick-up.

The market is held under the open-air pavilion at 524 N. Main St. The market has used a market-to-go concept since May 2, allowing customers to pre-order and drive through to get their items.

In accordance with the Governor’s “Best Practices Guidelines,” customers walking through the Market are asked to wear facemasks and maintain physical distance between parties. A handwashing station and hand sanitizer will be available. No one with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19, or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days, is permitted in the Suffolk Visitor Center or Farmers’ Market.

The Market will feature arts and crafts vendors and other merchants at a later date. Live entertainment and children’s programming will resume when deemed safe for the public to attend such gatherings.
