Farmers Market changes announced
IRON COUNTY — This summer, farmers who participate in the Iron County farmers markets will sell their produce and products from their farms because of COVID-19, according to farmers market master Ginny LaFountain.
“With all the new rules, regulations and guidelines from the CDC and the state, we feel it is best to do it this way,” LaFountain said.
All purchases will be made upon order and will be picked up curbside at each farm by the customer. All orders will be prepackaged, and customers will not be allowed to browse or touch produce in order to keep everything sanitary.
See the Iron County Farmers Market Facebook page for days, times, and what is available from each farmer. As produce becomes available, it will be listed with price by the farmer, then the customer may message the farmer with their order. The farmer will then message back with day and time for pickup.
“Please be patient and kind as we try to serve our public as best as we can at this time,” LaFountain requested.
Only a few farmers will be accepting the WIC Project Fresh and Senior Project Fresh coupons.
Customers are reminded to ask if the coupons will be accepted when they place their orders.
For more information on how to get the coupons, contact the WIC office for WIC Project Fresh coupons and Gwen Apger for the Senior Project Fresh coupons/information at 906-524-6300.
