CRAFT VENDORS ARE BACK!
Hello everyone, as you may or may not have known, craft vendors haven't been able to attend the market due to COVID-19 restrictions. Since resent restrictions have been lifted by the state, Cotton Mill Farmers Market welcomes back Craft Vendors! We have genuinely missed having them.
SNAP DOUBLING IS BACK!!!
Starting April 4th, SNAP/EBT recipients may use their card at the farmers market. Go to the hospitality tent and Geana will swipe your card. Then you will get DOUBLE THAT AMOUNT in tokens to spend on qualified foods from the market vendors!
The farmers market will remain open during this health crisis. Consider it your local grocery store, NOT a social gathering place temporarily. Use the following precautions when you come:
** Do not come to market if you are sick with anything. Also, do not come if someone in your household is sick. Have someone else do your shopping.
** If a line forms at a booth, please keep 6 feet of distance. Our market has plenty of room to spread out and still maintain your place in line. Do not crowd a booth. Wait for the space to clear or speak to the vendor and have them select items for you.
** The market is temporarily NOT a social gathering place. Please come, shop, and leave. We hate this as much as you do.
** You are strongly encouraged to send 1 or 2 people to shop for your family. Leave the children at home if possible.
** Please sanitize your hands before and after you attend the farmers market. Each vendor has hand sanitizer and the market will have a table with sanitizer and wipes.
** Do not handle food that you do not intend to purchase. Our vendors will package items so that you can purchase them with minimal handling.
We will get through this together as the strong community that we are!
