Farmers Market Customers:

As we continue to move forward, tackling this new pandemic, we strongly encourage everyone to practice physical and social distancing, proper handwashing, and wear a mask in public to help decrease the transmission of COVID-19 and encourage friends and family members to do the same.  

PLEASE NOTE A FEW CHANGES FOR THIS YEAR:

  • Vendor booths will be spaced several feet apart to allow for social distancing. Please maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from other customers in walkways and while waiting at vendors’ stalls.

  • Wear a mask if you have one.

  • Check our Facebook page for a list of vendors and in-season products each week to pre-plan your shopping.

  • Come to the market with a purchase plan in mind and limit social visiting with vendors and other shoppers.

  • Bring as few family members as possible to attend the market.

  • Please do not touch or sample items unless you are given permission by the vendor. Vendors are happy to help select and bag items for you.

  • Some vendors accept pre-orders for quick and easy pickup. Check our online vendor list for more information.

  • Wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer before and after attending the market.

  • Due to the need for a more spread-out market, there are fewer customer parking spots in the GCH parking lot. No parking is allowed in the grass next to the GCH parking lot. There is ample additional parking on St Mary’s Road – please pay attention not to park in front of the bus stop or fire hydrants.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. Our local farmers have great products ready for you and are grateful for your support!

About Us

 

Geary Community Hospital created this farmers market in 2014 as a public service to bring fresh, local foods to the community and support small local producers. There were six vendors at the first farmers market. With strong support from farmers and the community, the market built to as many as 30 vendors in any given week.

Due to the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the market pivoted to a community-based approach with Live Well Geary County leading the market coordination in partnership with Geary Community Hospital and the Geary Co Health Department. We also benefited from valuable insight and mentoring on market operations from Manhattan Farmers Market managers.
