SUFFOLK, Va. - The Suffolk Farmers Market-To-Go is going back to normal!

Suffolk Tourism announced that the traditional farmers market held under the open-air pavilion located at 524 North Main Street in Downtown Suffolk will once again be a walk-through market.

Beginning on Saturday, July 4 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., customers will be able to shop and make on-site purchases from vendors offering garden-fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams and jellies, meats and poultry, flowers and other horticulture items, plus personal care products.

Customers can also continue to contact vendors directly to pre-order items for Saturday pick-up.

In accordance with Gov. Ralph Northam's “Best Practices Guidelines,” customers walking through the market are asked to wear face masks and maintain physical distance between one another.

A handwashing station and hand sanitizer will be readily available for market goers. No one with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19 - or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days - will be allowed in the Suffolk Visitor Center or farmers market.

The market will feature arts and crafts vendors and other merchants at a later date. Live entertainment and children’s programming will resume when officials deem it safe for the public to attend such gatherings.

For additional information, visit the farmers market's official website and Facebook page.

Hours of operation are Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
