The Rochester Farmer’s Market is planning to relocate to the ball fields at the Rochester Common for the month of September. The market had been operating out of the parking lot at the Rochester Community Center for the beginning of the 2020 season.
“We needed to move the market because the School Department will be using the parking lot once the school year begins,” said market manager Vicky Poland. “We started at the Common originally and we’re looking forward to serving our patrons there again for the month of September.”
Parking is available on both sides of the Common and market hours will remain the same. The September market dates are scheduled every Tuesday, September 1-29 from 3-6pm.
“The market will continue to operate with the same COVID 19 safety guidelines in place. We will rope everything off with one entry and exit,” explained Poland. “Hand sanitizer and masks will be available at the volunteer tent. Based on the Governor’s order issued recently, masks will be mandatory in the market.”
The Farmer’s Market will also be hosting the Vouchers for Veterans program for the month of September. Vouchers can be obtained from the Vouchers for Veterans booth that will be set up near the bandstand.
The Farmer’s Market is still accepting EBT and providing the “Market Match” vouchers which double SNAP dollars for fruit and vegetable purchases. This program is made possible through a generous sponsorship from GATHER. Free reusable shopping bags are also available thanks to market sponsor, Holy Rosary Credit Union.
