Each farmers market will sell fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese and baked goods -- while a few of the locations will also sell flowers, small gifts and gardening items.

They will all accept SNAP (food stamps), credit and debit cards. However, shoppers are asked to pay the exact amount if using cash.

The following COVID-19 safety guidelines will be in effect:

  • Masks required
