Farmers Market Coalition Provides Resources for Markets Responding to COVID-19

The Farmers Market Coalition (FMC) maintains that farmers markets are necessary for the livelihood of tens of thousands of farmers and for food access for millions of consumers. FMC asserts that farmers markets should be addressed in the same manner as grocery stores, pharmacies, and other essential public services as decisions are made regarding containment protocols. FMC has posted a web page, Farmers Markets Respond to COVID-19, that provides news updates on impacts and regulations on farmers markets, as well as resources for mitigating risks in market operation and suggestions for communicating effectively with market vendors and customers.
