Farmers Market offers 2 ways to shop

NORTH ANDOVER — The North Andover Farmers Market will open for the season Sunday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the corner of First and Main streets with two ways to shop – in person, from the market’s on-site produce and seafood vendors, as well as by placing online orders from participating vendors and picking them up during market hours.

A limited number of shoppers will be allowed in the market at one time and an express line will offer quick pick-up of online orders. All shoppers will be required to wear a face covering and will not be allowed to touch the produce, organizers said.

“We are excited that we’ve been able to modify our open-air farmers market experience this season to make it safe for vendors and customers, with proper social distancing and face masks in keeping with COVID-19 concerns,” said Margie Rothschild, NAFM market manager. “We’ve redesigned our market layout to reduce the number of booths while still offering all the wonderful foods and products from our returning vendors.”

To place online orders that can be picked up on Sunday, visit online at NorthAndoverFarmersMarket.org, where you will find a list of vendors.
