COVID-19 and the

Manzanita Farmers Market

We are making the following changes & requests for the 2020 season, until further notice.

How We're Dealing With This

Guiding principles to inform decision making for the Manzanita Farmers Market during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Follow official mandates & regulations

    • Regulatory (e.g., Oregon Department of Agriculture, County Health Dept.)

    • National

    • State

    • City

  • Prevent spread of COVID-19

    • For vendors

    • For customers

    • For community members not participating in markets

  • Benefit area residents

    • Facilitate safe and streamlined sales opportunities for local businesses.

      • Specifically, businesses that meet the Manzanita Farmers Market’s vendor criteria which requires the vendor be the producer of their product, and located within 100 miles of Manzanita

    • Facilitate safe and streamlined purchasing opportunities for local residents.

Expectations on the part of vendors, customers, and management

Vendor responsibilities and expectations:

  • Vendors will be required to bring and wear masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE).

Market responsibilities and operations:

  • Nutrition incentive programs will continue to run (SNAP, DUFB, WIC/Senior FDNP). 

  • Zero-tolerance policy for coming to market when sick, for both staff and vendors. To support this we have adjusted our vendor policies to allow for vendor fee refunds up to and including the day of the market.

  • Online orders may be placed Sunday through Wednesday here. 

  • Products will also be available for sale on site.

  • Pick-up:

    • Park and walk into the Market to pick up your orders from each vendor you ordered from. 

    • SNAP payment transactions will be conducted on-site, following social distancing guidelines

    • MFM will assign time windows (15 minute increments) for customers to arrive to pick up their order

  • One way traffic flow around the ball field
