COVID-19 Precautions at Minnesota Farmers' Markets as of May 28, 2021
There are no longer state-imposed restrictions on farmers' market capacities (indoor or outdoor). Markets may choose to operate at full capacity! Social distancing is still recommended, as is masking for people not fully vaccinated, however, neither are required. Individual farmers' markets though may opt to continue to implement policies such as masking and social distancing as they feel necessary to protect those not fully vaccinated. Local ordinances may also dictate certain policies remain in place.
Sampling at farmers' markets is now allowed once again. Sampling is a great way to show off your amazing products! You must follow all state of Minnesota requirements for sampling. See details for Safe Food Sampling for Farmers' Market Vendors.
