Ottawa Farmers Market is coming back to McKellar Park!

30 06 2020

The Ottawa Farmers Market has announced that it will be re-opening for weekly markets in McKellar Park on July 4. Stay updated on the latest related to that on their Facebook page here. They’ve been working with Ottawa Public Health on all the necessary safety protocols, and our discussion has been that there will be a reserved hour at the start of market days for vulnerable shoppers

Hi #Ottawa!

Market staff have been working closely with public health officials to create protocols to help make our markets the safest source of fresh, local food possible while we strive to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Ottawa.

These measures include:

– Limiting customer numbers within the market at any given time.
– Limiting the first hour to those aged 65+ and/or immunocompromised
– Spaces between vendor’s booths.
– Hand sanitizer throughout the market.
– Physical distancing measures within the market square, and in areas where customers may wait.
– Sanitizing surfaces and tables frequently.
– No sampling of products.
– All food is take-out only. No eating within the market.
– No seating areas.
– No pets, only service animals.
– No musicians or buskers.

We ask that customers please respect these measures as they are designed to give you the safest shopping experience possible.

We ask that you please:

– Stay home if you are sick, or have been in contact with someone who is sick.
– Use the hand sanitizer provided.
– Shop one person per household, whenever possible.
– Leave your pets at home, only service animals.
– Maintain 2 meters distance between yourself and others at all times.

Thank you!
