Aurora Farmers Market will open for season Saturday
The Aurora Farmers Market will open for its 108th season on Saturday.
Returning to Water Street Square, 65 S. Water St. in downtown, the market will be open from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday, with some new restrictions, including requiring vendors and visitors to wear face coverings and providing hand sanitizer at each booth.
The market also is transitioning from a weekly gathering space to an in-and-out shopping experience, with an increased focus on the health and safety of participants. There will be only one designated entry point and one exit point and booths will be staggered to ensure adequate space for social distancing while shopping and waiting in line. Vendors will be required to follow state guidelines for transactions at farmers markets, including transporting products in containers that can be sanitized, using no-contact payment methods as much as possible and displaying market signage as assigned.
The market will run every Saturday through Oct. 17, with the exception of July 4.
