Ok, by now most of you have noticed that I haven’t been at the market…
SFM Newsletter March 22nd
Dearest Sebastopol. We will be open this coming Sunday as an essential service to our community. We ask you to follow the CDC guidelines for staying safe in public. We as a market are taking extra precautions by providing hand washing stations, sanitizer and gloves. We ask that you ask the farmer or vendor what their protocol is. I believe the best way to keep everyone safe is to have everyone wear gloves when handling produce or have the vendor help you. All vendors are required to wear gloves, wash hands often, use sanitizer and wipe down surfaces often. Masks are encouraged and please practice 6’ distancing. And the worst part, absolutely no hugging. Greet friends with a wave or Namaste. We hope that you will help us in our efforts to make the market as safe as possible for all of our customers. If you are sick or vulnerable, please do not come to the market. Have someone else shop for you. In the grand scheme of things, these necessary precautions are a temporary inconvenience that I think we can all live with in order to keep our community healthy and keep the market, open so that we can continue feeding people fresh, clean, locally grown food.
For now, during the shelter in, we will not be scheduling music or featuring non-essential items. We hope to return to our normal music schedule soon.
Hot food will be for take home only. We will not be providing tables or chairs.
Now for the good news :) Produce offerings include a vast array of amazing nutrient dense veggies to boost your immune system. Include lots of green leafy veggies in your diet like lettuces, arugula, spinach, kales, mustard greens, collards, chard, savoy, napa, green and red cabbages, onions, shallots, garlic, beets, carrots, potatoes, rutabagas, mushrooms, cauliflowers and broccolis, ASPARAGUS, HERBS and so much more..
Citrus is still in abundance with a variety of oranges, tangerines grapefruit, lemons and limes. It’s a good time to make it apart of your daily health routine. And YES!! There will be DATES!
Stay tuned.. it’s almost strawberry season.
Look for veggie and herb starts for your Spring garden. Nothing like edible flowers and herbs to make you smile. Start your edible garden today.
Make sure to look for farmer inspired products including nuts and nut butters, meats, cheeses, olive oil, herbal teas, hot sauces, breads, pastries and pastas, olives, preserves and other homemade treats.
Mark your calendars.. we will let you know if events need to be cancelled.
