COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS OPERATIONS PLAN

Milwaukie Farmers Market:

COVID-19/ Coronavirus Operations Plan

The Milwaukie Farmers Market continues its 23rd season by welcoming our neighbors, while also keeping important health guidelines in place.  We will have a smaller market again this season, in order to provide a safe and healthy shopping experience for our customers and vendors.  In order to comply with COVID-19 requirements, the Milwaukie Farmers Market is taking the following steps to keep our customers and vendors safe and healthy.  

COVID-19 Requirements

  1. Leaving a minimum of 3 feet of empty space between each booth, by reducing the total number of vendors by one-third.
  2. Prioritizing vendors who sell food and food-related items, and planting materials. 
    1. Vendors/services who will not currently be at the Market include:
      1. Musicians
      2. City of Milwaukie Info Booth
      3. Nonprofit Organizations
      4. Young Entrepreneurs
      5. Master Gardeners
      6. Master Recyclers
      7. Most craft vendors
      8. Massage
      9. Face painting
      10. Balloon artist
  3. Enforcing social distancing through our Social Distancing Officer, Market Master Brendan Eiswerth.  In addition, each vendor booth will have a Social Distancing Officer, as required by the State of Oregon.  
  4. Prepared food will be available, but should not be eaten on site.  There will not be seating or tables.

Likewise, we will ask the following of everyone who attends the Market:

  1. Do not come to the Market if you are feeling ill, or have been in contact with someone who is ill, per CDC guidelines.
  2. Wear a face mask or covering, per State of Oregon rules.
  3. Maintain a healthy distance: keep 6 feet between yourself, other shoppers, and vendors.
  4. Keep your group small: shop solo or with one other person, if possible.
  5. Shop efficiently: plan to get in and out of the Market in a timely manner.
  6. Shop with your eyes, not your hands: please ask vendors for assistance.
  7. Keep your hands clean: with gloves, washing, or sanitizer.
  8. No pets: the Market’s policy of no pets continues.  Service animals are allowed.

Alternate Ordering and Pick-up Options

Some of our vendors have implemented online ordering through an app (iOS and Android) called What’s Good https://sourcewhatsgood.com/.  This is an outside company, and is not managed by the Milwaukie Farmers Market.  If you preorder through What’s Good, and select the Milwaukie Farmers Market as your pick-up location, you would then pick up the items you ordered directly at the vendor’s booth.

Next Steps

Please note that this is our current plan.  As the COVID-19 situation evolves, and state and local regulations change, we will make updates as needed.  If you have questions, please send us a message here: Contact Us

Thank You!

We want to thank you—our wonderful community—for your past, present, and future support of the Milwaukie Farmers Market, and the many farmers who call our Market home.  And to our vendors: thank you for growing and creating the food and other items we all need in order to be healthy and happy.  Your dedication and devotion is inspiring!

Thank you,

Milwaukie Farmers Market and Celebrate Milwaukie, Inc.

 


Many visitors make a walk to the Market part of their Sunday routine — a little exercise, fresh air, and a chance to check out what’s new around downtown or along the riverfront. Bring a backpack and come on foot!

Getting to downtown Milwaukie by bike couldn't be easier. Located on the banks for the Willamette River there are multiple "bike-friendly" was to get to the Market.

From Downtown Portland and close in SE enjoy the scenic ride from the East-Side Esplanade, through Sellwood and right to the Market. The 6.5 mile ride was created on decommissioned railroad lines so it makes for an easy Sunday morning ride!
