The City of Falls Church Farmers Market will be open during the COVID-19 pandemic with a "to go" format that complies with the guidelines from Governor Northam and the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS).
The new Farmers Market To Go offers an additional food source for residents and helps local farmers keep their businesses going (and growing) during the pandemic.
The market will be open on Saturdays from 9am to Noon.
Customers are strongly encouraged to pre-order their purchases. Browsing and shopping are allowed, but strongly discouraged.
Pre-ordering is preferred. Customers buy goods in advance -- online or over the phone -- and pick-up at the market. See list of vendors with ordering and contact information below.
When possible only one person per family should enter the market at a time.
A minimum social distancing and physical separation of 6 feet between individuals will be enforced.
Hand sanitizer will be available. Customers are encouraged to bring their own sanitizer as well as disinfecting wipes.
Customers are not permitted to touch any items for sale other than the prepackaged bag or box they are handed by the producer.
Staff will ask customers to confirm a placed order.
Pre-paying for orders is preferred but if that is not possible, payment can be made at the market with a credit card or check. Cash will only be accepted if a card is not available. No coins can be used to complete the transaction.
No one with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19, or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days, is permitted in the farmers market.
