Farmer’s Market Heads to New Pasture

Wednesday Markets Suspended

Main Street Delaware’s Farmer Market is among the highlights of a Saturday or Wednesday in downtown Delaware, Ohio.

Unfortunately, the pandemic has required the market to temporarily relocate Saturday festivities to Delaware County Fairgrounds in 2020. Unfortunately, the Wednesday afternoon market has been suspended and will be reevaluated each week.

The initial Farmer’s Market will take place on Saturday, May 30 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Fairgrounds. The Delaware General Health Department has given its blessing for the market to continue allowing the community to park their car and walk the market.

“COVID-19 has affected Farmers’ Markets all over our state and nation, we have done our due diligence in researching and found that Worthington and Clintonville Farmers’ Markets have moved their locations as well,” Main Street wrote in an email to downtown merchants. “Sunbury has postponed their Farmers’ Market until further notice. We believe that this is the safest and best option in order to continue to provide fresh and local options to the community.”

In reality, the only other option in a world of social distancing would have been to suspend the farmer’s market. With the number of vendors, tight sidewalks, and popularity of the event … it would be impossible to socially distance.

Delaware County Fairgrounds is located at 236 Pennsylvania Avenue in Delaware.
