Fall Market by Farmers Market Ogden
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we at Farmers Market Ogden have made the decision to extend the summer market, that is currently being held on the 300 block of Historic 25th Street, through October 10, 2020. In past years, we have moved the market into the Ogden Amphitheater mid-September and transitioned to a smaller Fall Market. At this time, we feel it is in the best interest of our vendors, staff and community members to keep Farmers Market Ogden summer season running on Historic 25th Street as it offers more space for social distancing and other safety precautions.
Farmers Market Ogden will continue to run Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. until October 10. Please be aware that as the harvest begins to shift between summer and fall, vendors will be adjusting their products accordingly and you may see a decrease of market vendors as this occurs.
This decision was made with two things in mind. One, Weber County is still not in the “green” stage of COVID-19 response and recovery, which is required in order for us to add artisan vendors and extend the market down Historic 25th Street. Second, it allows us to safely continue providing access to local food and agriculture for community members – a necessary support service. With the various safety concerns and issues needing to be addressed, we believe this to be the best available plan of action in line with our mission to support the community through access to local food and agriculture.
We are, of course, saddened to not have our artisan vendors able to participate in this year’s market. In lieu of their participation, we are working on offering an online avenue for sales and e-introductions to new businesses. This will be a unique way for you to shop the best of local goods from artisans, creators and business owners, so we can continue focusing on intentional support of our community. We will share more information on how you can participate in this opportunity as it comes to fruition.
As we continue this season of Farmers Market Ogden, our community favorite staples will remain. Weekly community yoga with our friends at And She’s Dope Too will continue every Saturday morning in the Municipal Park, so be sure to bring your own yoga mat! Every Friday, expect a fresh new video packed with music by local artists, updates from our staff and exclusive downtown content you will not want to miss. We may be changing the way we do things this year, but our core values and commitment to supporting local remains.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we do our part to keep the community safe and healthy. Follow @FarmersMarketOgden on Facebook and Instagram for updates, vendor highlights, weekly reminders and more as we continue supporting our local growers and producers!
