We ask all market managers, stallholders and shoppers to act responsibly to offer maximum common sense reduction of risk at this challenging time.  Farmers’ markets are a fundamental link in our healthy food chain and no more than now should we be eating fresh healthy food.  What’s more, we need to support our farmers and artisan food producers many of whose livelihoods depend on their weekly trading at farmers’ markets.

Sell and shop local, sell and shop seasonal and healthy food, sell and shop in the fresh air and – shop with you own trolley!

This FACT SHEET will be updated as required and is intended to assist market managers, stallholders and shoppers in farmers’ markets minimise health risk and ensure maintenance of best practice public health safety.
