The Batavia Farmers' Market officially will open for its outdoor season at 8 a.m. May 30, with more than 30 vendors.
This year will mark the 25th year of the annual market, which takes place every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. The Farmers’ Market traditionally runs from June through October on North River Street north of Wilson Street.
"Come enjoy over 30 different vendors offering a variety of fresh vegetables, fruit, eggs, meat, cheese, herbs, flowers, music and more," invites Batavia MainStreet.
"There are changes, of course, changes to the rules … the most important ones being: cover your faces, wait your turn, don’t touch the food, don’t bring pets," reminds Sherri Wilcox Dauskurdas, executive director of Batavia MainStreet in an email.
She notes the market will shift north on River Street and flow into the Larson-Becker parking lot at River and Spring streets, to increase distancing between the booths, and to accommodate a picnic area along River Street from Wilson through State Street.
"Folks will be able to take carryout food from nearby restaurants to those tables to enjoy, as well as prepared food items from the market," Wilcox Dauskurdas said.
The city of Batavia also is allowing expanded outdoor seating in parking lots and adjacent public space for restaurants in other downtown areas, she added.
