OAKLAND — A new option is now available for shopping at the Mountain Fresh Farmers Market.
With the current social distancing guidelines, some of the vendors have set up online markets.
Shoppers can purchase from each vendor individually with credit/debit (there is a small fee to help cover credit card fees for each transaction) or mark “pay with check” to pay at the market with check or cash (with no fees).
Customers can also choose where and when to pick up products, with some vendors offering on-farm pickup, as well.
A list of vendors can be found at www.MountainFresh.org/shop, and more vendors will be added.
“In order to help our vendors and customers comply with the social distancing recommendations, we’ve been looking at different farmers market options,” said Cheryl DeBerry, market adviser. “Online ordering with farmers market pick up seemed like the best way to help reduce the crowds and keep people safe.”
