The world is in an unprecedented time, and the farmers market board and staff are working diligently to ensure the health and safety of our farmers and customers.  Thus, we will be having a pop-up market this Saturday but it will be PRE-ORDER ONLY!  The Market will function as a drive-thru, and you will not get out of your vehicle.  Walkers and bicycles, who placed pre-orders, are still welcome!  We’ll have a place for you to wait while we gather your orders.  Please read on for information.

WHEN: Sat., Apr. 4th; customers with last names beginning A-L will pick up orders from 10am-11am; customers with last names beginning M-Z will pick up orders from 11am-noon.  Market drive-thru will not be open until 10am to allow vendors the time to set-up.

WHERE: Farmers Market Pavilion at River View Park in Frankfort (corner of Wilkinson & Broadway)

WHY: The market board and staff are working hard to help the farmers market respond to the rapidly changing situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy, connecting our community with local food, and supporting all our local producers.  Those commitments won’t change. 

HOW: ALL customers must pre-order, and pre-orders must be submitted to the farmers by NOON ON THURSDAY (Apr. 2).  Please see below for availability from our farmers and their contact info.  Some farmers have longer lists and you should be able to click the link to view them; they should also show up as attachments to the bottom of this email.  Please contact McKenzie (reply to this email) or call/text at (517)525-5740 if you have any issues with this.

You will come to the Market during your designated time to pick up your food.  Please stay in your vehicle and support our efforts to maintain social distancing.  If you have ordered from 4 or fewer vendors, we will have you drive around the market pavilion to pick up your orders.  If you have ordered from five or more vendors, please park in the parking lot and text Michelle at (270)799-5355 to let her know that you have arrived.  Text her your name and which vendors you ordered from, and we will gather your orders and deliver them to your car.  Please have separate payments for each vendor you ordered from.  

If you are shopping with SNAP, please call or text Michelle at (270)799-5355 (preferably before the market) and she will help with SNAP payments. 
ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

What if I am not feeling well?
     Please stay home or send a friend if you are feeling sick.  We can work with you to arrange a delivery, but we need you stay home if you are sick.

How do I pay for my items?
     Please have payment ready for vendors upon arrival of your pick-up time.  EXACT CHANGE OR CHECK is required to minimize contact and keep the line moving efficiently.  Upon ordering with your vendors, they will let you know the amount you owe.  Some vendors accept credit cards and online payment, and will do this form of payment before the market day over the phone or online.  They will communicate directly with you about payment options when you place your order. 

Can I still pay with SNAP?  Will I still receive double dollars?
     Of course!  If you are shopping with SNAP, please call or text Michelle at (270)799-5355 (preferably before market day).

What if I still have questions?
     Call or text Michelle at (270)799-5355 or email her.

 
OTHER REMINDERS
As much as we love that the market is a community gathering place – and we miss seeing all of you – it is important that you come to the market, pick up your orders, and go home.  Saturday is not the day for chatting with vendors or friends – even through the window of your car – and we really need your help in keeping the market safe for everyone.

Please also give us some grace during this market as it is our first time doing this format.  You may face a wait in the drive-thru or for your food to be delivered to you; just know we are doing our best!
