“We are allowed to sell just the essential stuff which is the baking and we are allowed to have edible plants. So we are allowed to have the seedlings, like your tomato starters, cucumber starters and all that stuff.”

In keeping with guidelines, Unruh says the Farmers market will be only accepting 10 customers at a time and to ensure proper physical distancing and sanitation.

The Farmers Market will operate every Saturday, starting May 16, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Seniors Hall.
