Farmer’s market reopens Saturday

The Pike County’s Farmer Market will reopen on Saturday.

“We’ll have different types of greens, peppers, honey, blackberries, blueberries, squash … most of the seasonal vegetables,” said Nick D’Andrea, who helps coordinate the market.

The market will be open from 7 to 11 a.m. at Bicentennial Park on U.S. 231 in Troy.

“For the month of May we’ll be open on Saturdays only,” D’Andrea said. “In June, July and August we plan to open three days a week – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 7 to 11 a.m.”

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, some additional social distancing and health guidelines are in place for the market.

All vendors and shoppers are required to wear masks. Vendors are required to wear gloves and provide hand sanitizer for patrons of the market.

“These are state requirements,” D’Andrea said.

A dozen farmers will be on hand for the opening day. “And if people want a particular product that we don’t have, you can tell the farmers … we still have plenty of time to grow it,” he said.

The farmer’s market will continue to accept vouchers provided by the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition program.
