The Ann Arbor Farmers Market reopened for the first time this past weekend since the COVID-19 crisis.
Customers who pre-ordered packages were offered curbside pickup or were able to walk-up to individual vendors to get their orders. Josh Landefeld is the deputy manager for Parks and Recreation at the City of Ann Arbor. He says residents can visit the city’s website for information on how to place orders.
"You will be able to see which vendors and go through their websites. So, our website provides a list or directory of those that are participating at this point, but all purchases, all interaction for what is available is through the individual vendor's website."
As of now, the market will be open on Wednesdays and Saturdays for pre-orders only. The city will roll out three to four phases to hopefully get operations running to as normal as possible.
