Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market Scheduled to Open on May 9 Seeks the Communities Support

The Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market has announced that they will open their 2020 season as planned on May 9th from 8am – 1pm in the west parking lot of Pybus Public Market. The Market will open with about 15-20 vendors selling essential produce, plant starts and takeout, following safety guidelines established by the Chelan Douglas Health District.  In order to successfully implement the safety guidelines, Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market is reaching out to the community asking for volunteers to help.

Pybus Market and Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market consulted with Barry Kling, Administrator, Chelan/Douglas Health District to develop the safety plan for the market’s opening. Plans include spacing out vendor booths, hand washing stations, limiting contact between patrons and vendors, as well as limiting the amount of people in the farmer’s market area at one time. These measures are critical for keeping visitors and vendors safe during the stay-at-home order. 

“We are delighted to welcome back the Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market for another summer season at their home at Pybus Public Market”, said Leslie Freytag, Executive Director, Pybus Public Market.

In order to maintain social distancing, the market needs volunteers from the community to help. “We need extra hands to help regulate the amount of people inside the market area, and to direct and inform visitors”, said Deb Stansberry, Board President, Wenatchee Valley Farmer’s Market
