The Nash County Farmers Market’s Opening Day will be held as planned. Come and pick up essential foods and other goods at the 2020 farmers market on Saturday, April 4, 2020, 8am-1pm.

According to market manager Maurine Brown:

“We are following the recommendations from NCSU Food Safety for Farmers Markets.

“According to guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, farmers markets fall under the same classification as grocery stores and are considered an important source of food for local communities.”

The precautions being taken include:

  • Hand washing stations will be available throughout the market.
  • All vendors will be spaced apart to allow for social distancing.
  • Concession stand, sampling and onsite food and drink consumption has been suspended.
  • On-site dining spaces have been eliminated.
  • Frequent cleaning and sanitizing of market equipment.

All market visitors and vendors need to follow the NC Governor’s mandate and stay six feet apart. For everyone’s safety, avoid touching items unless purchasing them, and stay home if you’re ill or have been exposed to coronavirus.

The market is located at 1006 Peachtree Street, Rocky Mount, NC. Read more about the Nash County Farmers Market in the Rocky Mount Mills Historic District at nash.ces.ncsu.edu/farmers-market-rocky-mount.
