LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Shoppers at the Lafayette Farmer's Market will notice several changes in safety measures due to COVID-19.
The Tippecanoe County Health Department is still allowing the market to be held, but only vendors selling items deemed essential will be allowed.
This includes items such as meat, eggs, dairy and whole produce.
Only 15 vendors will be allowed at the market.
The number of visitors allowed into the market will be limited to 60 at a time.
"If you are asked to wait we do ask that you either go back to your car and wait or space yourself accordingly with other individuals who are waiting,” said Farmer’s Market Manager Rebecca Jones.
Jones said keeping social distancing is a top priority.
"Each vendor will have a line denoted with rope so you'll be able to know where those six foot sections are that you'll be able to stand in."
The farmer's market will start Saturday, May 2nd.
It will run from 8 AM until 12 PM, with the first hour being reserved for seniors and people with disabilities.
