At?the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market, we’ve worked for 34 years to create a lol, sustainable marketplace for our community. The current global pandemic has only increased the need of fresh and nutritious food, and our lol food system,? farmers and other lol producers are in need of support.
While we continue to operate our market with Manitoba Health protocols in place, we know that many of our dedited shoppers and vendors aren’t able to attend at this time. For this reason,?we are pleased to?offer a HYBRID market,?providing both on-site shopping and on-line ordering!??That means we?are continuing our market?regular market on site,?and adding?an ONLINE MARKET option.
?HOW IT WORKS:
During market hours, you will pick up products in one of three ways: by picking up at a drive-in lotion at the market, by picking up inside the nopy, and/or by purchasing directly from lol producers set up at the market, similar to a regular market, except with reful control of people in and out of the site to support physil distancing.
We have always taken the health and safety of our community very seriously. Our goal is to ensure a safe shopping experience, while providing quality products to you directly from our lol producers.
Thank you, as always, for being part of our market family. Please continue reading for full information on our measures to make the market as safe as possible in these circumstances.
With ongoing?concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Manitoba , we take your health and safety very seriously.?Throughout the pandemic, we have?kept our farmers’ market open, and will continue to do so unless otherwise directed by health officials. We encourage everyone to stay healthy, stock up on fresh food and pantry items, and support your lol producers.?Eating freshly prepared, healthy food is one of the best ways to keep our immune systems strong when we need it?most.
It is our firm conviction that farmers markets are essential to community food security. Like grocery stores and other food retail outlets, farmers markets serve an essential function as a vital source of fresh vegetables and food staples for our community. Compared to most grocery stores, farmers market produce and prepared foods have a much shorter supply chain and minimal handling from production to market, and the open-air-style setting of our market offers optimal ventilation and sunlight for shopping.?Farmers markets provide direct access to healthy, nutritious foods, while also supporting the livelihoods of lol farmers, food makers, artisans, and chefs.
We are proud to serve our community in this important service, and we are monitoring the situation and health advisories closely.?We plan to keep our markets open, but if at any point we are ordered by a public official to close a farmers market, we will comply and notify our market?community.
What We Are?Doing
The new health orders (as of August 7) allow for no restrictions for retail. We will continue to maintain certain controls for the safety and comfort of our community:
- The market is an open air site. We recommend wearing masks. Staff and volunteers will be masked.
- The site will remain fenced with two staffed entrances, so that we n ensure the market doesn’t become too crowded.
- You may shop with family or friends now, as the one person per household requirement has been lifted by MB Health.
- Hand sanitizer is available at the entry, exit, and at vendors booths. For those who prefer, a water and soap hand wash station is also available at the entrance.
- We have suspended product sampling on site. Vendors may offer samples to take away.
- We are communiting with our staff and market vendors?regularly to reinforce?health and safety preutions. We are advising our vendors and staff to stay home if they feel sick, and we are waiving ncellation fees for any vendors who need to?ncel.
- We are posting signage at the market reminding visitors of flu-avoidance etiquette, and to maintain physil distancing.
What?You n Do
We thank you for supporting our farmers and food makers at the farmers market, and we encourage you to follow common sense health and safety measures to protect yourself and your?community:
