Ashland Farmers Market
Support Local at the Ashland Farmers Market!
Everything is wonky right now and nothing is normal. We'd like to keep some home-grown comfort in your life.
We will hold a walk-up market with many guidelines in place for the safety of our customers and vendors.
Vendors will be spaced far apart to allow for social distancing. We will have one-way pedestrian traffic using entrance and exit points, with a hand sanitizing station at the entrance. Customers will park near the entrance to the bus loop, (unmarked spaces, but room for quite a few cars) or on the street. The Henry Clay Elementary parking lot will be for vendors only.
Face coverings will be required for both vendors and customers.
Pets are not allowed in the market space.
While vendors will have some products available for onsite purchases, pre-orders, (and prepayment when possible) are still strongly encouraged.
Walk-up hours are 9-11 a.m.
For the latest information on how this will work and for vendor listings, check out our Facebook page or subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter.

WHERE: Beginning in January 2019 the Farmers Market will be located in the parking lot of Henry Clay Elementary School, 310 S. James St., just two blocks west of our present location.
