Forwarded on behalf of Si View Metropolitan Parks

The North Bend Farmers Market opens for the 2020 season this Thursday, June 11 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Si View Park. The market will be open every Thursday through September 10 with modified operations.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many changes to North Bend Farmers Market operations. This season starts as a much smaller operation with farm and processor vendors only, and new procedures in place to ensure safety of shoppers, vendors and staff. Please review our modified operations plan before your visit, and adhere to our shopper guidelines below. While we must forgo the summer concerts and activities for now, we are thrilled for this first step of resuming activities at the park.

Shopper Expectations:

  1. Stay home if you are sick. Stay home if you have been in contact with someone who is sick.
  2. Leave pets at home, service animals welcome.
  3. Face coverings are recommended for everyone who can wear them.
  4. Designate one shopper per family and come prepared to move quickly through the market to help limit crowding.
  5. Do not touch market products, the vendors will help you.
  6. Maintain 6 feet of space around you at all times.
  7. Follow all guidance from staff and posted signage.
  8. Bring your reusable shopping bag, you will be the only one touching it.

In our first week of operations, you can expect to find the following vendors (pending any last-minute changes). In the coming weeks, we will add additional vendors as more produce becomes ready for harvesting, and when additional vendor types are approved.
