Because of the concern with COVID19 spreading via public gatherings, a number of our vendors will not be coming to the market this week. We were going to officially cancel the market, but at least one intrepid farmer, Elizabeth Wood from New Leaf CSA insisted on coming down to sell veggies to you, and she will be joined by Mary Ellen from High Goose Farm with all those healthful black currant concoctions, and likely Orchard Hill Breadworks as well. I’m sure others will be there too. Check our Facebook page -@brattleborowinterfarmersmarket – for updates.
So when you come to the market on Saturday, you will find a smaller version of us, and you will not find a terminal to run credit, debit or EBT card sales. Plan accordingly and be prepared with cash or check, or the tokens and coupons you already have on hand.
For all concerned we do ask that folks with cold-like symptoms please remain at home. As we did last week there will be hand sanitizer inside the door. But with the growing concern about the spread of this virus and to borrow words from our friends at NOFA-VT, we want to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 infection rate to slow the spread of the virus.
We will be discussing what this means for the remaining 2 weeks of our market season, and if needed possible alternatives for putting customers together with our vendors and the fabulous goods they bring to market for you each week. So stay tuned.
And in the meantime, let me know if you want to reach out to any of our vendors to arrange a purchase or see if they will be at the market on Saturday. Or check our Facebook page for updates.

And be smart, wash your hands often and take good care all!
