Please note, due to the spread of COVID-19, the Surry County Farmers Market has adopted the following mission and rules:

  • We want to continue to safely provide you healthy foods in a controlled environment.
  • Until further notice, we want the public to treat the market as an essential shopping trip.
  • Please do not come if you feel sick.
  • Please pre-order from your favorite farmers, if possible, and let the vendor touch and bag your items for you.
  • Please do not crowd the booths and respect the 6-foot distancing as recommended by the CDC.
  • Our healthy vendors will all be wearing masks, using hand sanitizer between each transaction, and will have hand sanitizer available at each booth for customer use.

As we all follow these precautions, and any changes and recommendations by the CDC, we will be able to keep the market open as a safe and healthy means of nourishment during this time. Thank you for your cooperation in making your trips necessary and efficient.
