A sign of normalcy: New Albany Farmers Market opens Saturday

By LAUREN JONES | WAVE 3 News

It’s a summer tradition, and now more than ever a sign that things are returning to “normal.” The New Albany Farmers Market will open to the public on May 23 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Despite the encouraging change as Indiana enters Phase 3 of reopening the economy, things will still look and feel a lot different if you’re heading out tomorrow.

There are several new safety guidelines you’ll have to follow, including the use of personal protective equipment, central entrance and exit locations and a no-touch policy as it pertains to products.

Guests are also asked to wear masks and practice social distancing of six-feet at all times. One to two family members are allowed to shop at a time, to cut down on crowding, and dogs will not be allowed as in years past.

There is also pre-paid and pre-order options available via the Develop New Albany website,developnewalbany.org

If you can’t make it out this weekend, the Farmers Market is open every Saturday at the City Square Pavilion, located on the corner of Market and Bank streets, in downtown New Albany.
