Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market given the green light

The green light has been given to the Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market for the 2020 season.

However, their opening date has been pushed back a couple of weeks.

The first market will be held on Saturday, June 20 and will run bi-weekly until October 10.

“Some of you have been wondering about that status of the market amid COVID-19 concerns,” the group posted on social media.

“Our volunteer committee has worked closely with the Chatham-Kent Health Unit to develop some new rules to ensure the health and safety of all attendees. We have been officially approved for this season and will start supporting our local growers and producers.”

The group said although they were originally intending to begin June 6, many of their main producers told them that their produce wasn’t quite ready.

“After much thought, our committee decided to push the first date till the 20th to ensure that we continue to deliver the quality of market everyone has come to know and love,” Wallaceburg Farmers’ Market officials said.

“We are working hard to keep you informed of the new guidelines as things progress towards the first market.”
