COVID-19 Visitor Safety Information

The Pittsburg Area Farmers’ Market will be open during the 2020 season with restrictions due to COVID-19.

Farmers’ markets are deemed an essential service and have been allowed to open during the pandemic as long as they adhere to local, state, and federal health and safety protocols.

The Pittsburg Parks & Recreation Department has implemented new procedures at the market to ensure the safety of patrons and vendors.

Please follow these guidelines when shopping at the Farmers’ market: 

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth AND cellphone while at the market.
  • If you need to sneeze or cough, sneeze or cough into a tissue or into the crease of your elbow.
  • Farmers’ markets are all about interacting and visiting with your community, but first and foremost, we are a food resource. To that end, please limit your human interactions to a wave.
  • Please try to make your visit as short as possible, to allow for more customers to come into the market.
  • While we have been deemed an essential service by the city, county, and state, we are monitoring crowds and are only allowed 40 people in the market at one time. This can mean we may be asking people to wait to enter the market
  • Please limit the number of customers in a booth to ONE at a time. Please keep at least 6+ feet from the customer in front of you. Note the markings on the ground as reminders.
  • Please practice social distancing by keeping a distance of 6+ feet from other customers and vendors.
  • We are encouraging vendors to use contactless credit card options.
  • Utilize the hand washing station.
