After careful consideration and due diligence through state and local officials, the Westport Farmers’ Market will open this Thursday, July 9 for day-of shopping. During the hours of 10:00 – 2:00 in the 50 Imperial Avenue location, you can find your beloved farmers, bakers, cheese mongers and more.
WFM will take the following actions to ensure safe shopping for all: require masks to be worn at all times, single direction traffic while shopping (one way in and one way out), hand sanitizer stations, social distancing and lots of fresh air.
During WFM’s day-of shopping, the air will fill with tunes from local musicians and the Friend of the Market bag plus WFM swag can be purchased throughout the day.
For those that feel safer in our pre-order touch-free selected time slot pick-up model, not to worry, we have kept this up and running. “We realize that healthy food is one of the best ways to heal your body and keep your immune system strong. Our immune-compromised shoppers, need safe access to our product and we are committed to bringing it to them while allowing others to participate in the day-of model.” Says Lori Cochran, Executive Director. “Ultimately, we think with a little extra work, we can host both options – do it all, if you will.” Each week, from 9:00 – 10:00, a select number of slots will be available for this model.
