Farmers Market Opens June 13
The Deerfield Farmers Market will open as scheduled on June 13 with a focus on health and safety.
This year, the Farmers Market will move away from its focus on “food, friends and fun” to a market that is dedicated to providing food in a safe, open-air shopping experience. This will require the elimination all of our social and civic activities as well as limiting the number of vendors.
To provide for better social distancing, the Farmers Market will move to Park Avenue just north of Jewett Park Drive.
The Farmers Market Committee and Village staff used guidelines provided by the Illinois Farmers Market Association to develop rules for vendors and patrons. The new rules will space out vendors, limit the number of patrons allowed to shop at one time, require face coverings and provide increased sanitation. Patrons will not be allowed to touch the merchandise. Shoppers are ask to limit one person per household. Dogs will not be allowed.
