The Yellowknife Farmers Market is back for another summer season starting on June 8th.
It will be running every Tuesday at the Somba K’e Civic Plaza until August 31st.
A maximum of 175 people are allowed to be on site at a time, and they will be monitored every 30-45 minutes. The YKFM says this figure could be revised as the market progresses.
Other new health measures being implemented at the market this year include the use of hand sanitizer upon entry and throughout the market; a limit of five people per line; and face masks being required for vendors, staff and volunteers.
Food at the market is available for take-out only and payments are preferred to be cash-free.
No dogs or other pets are allowed at the market.
Weekly maps will be made available on the YKFM facebook page for residents to check out what vendors will be there and where they will be stationed beforehand.
This year will also see the return of Music @ the Market in the amphitheater and several other programs which can be found on their website, under the ‘Programs’ section.
The Farmers Market has also made a proposal for two indoor markets to be held on September 14th & 28th. They say more details will be announced closer to the time.
