Health and Safety at the Market

Updated 10 May 2021

The Spencer Creek Growers Market is open every Saturday from late May through early October, 10am to 2pm, with significant restrictions and safety procedures to maintain public safety.

This information will be updated as new executive orders from the Governor’s office and Oregon Farmers Market Association guidelines are announced. The Oregon Farmers Market Association provides Covid-19 Resources based on these guidelines and requirements which apply specifically to Farmers Markets in Oregon.

When you come to market, expect to see the following:
  • Ground markings to indicate 6-foot physical distancing in higher-traffic areas
  • Vendors will wear protective face masks
  • Vendors will keep food handling and money handling as separate as possible. Money will not be handled on the same table as food. If possible, there will be two people working each booth, one to hand food to customers and one to handle payment; if only one vendor at a booth, they must demonstrate adequate separation of food handling and payments. Vendors will wear gloves while handling money – between customers, gloves will be discarded or sanitized.
  • Produce will be priced such that scales and weighing are eliminated
  • No samples will be offered
  • Hand-washing station will be located opposite the vendor booths
  • Every booth will have hand sanitizer available
  • No public tables or seating will be provided
As a shopper, please observe the following guidelines:
  • Masks or face coverings are required before entering the market
  • Maintain at least 6 feet between yourself and others who are not members of your household
  • Shop and go: No lingering or eating on premises
  • We ask that customers not handle produce but have vendors hand the item to them
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use your elbow
  • Stay home if you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with symptoms
  • Leave pets at home (Service animals are welcome)
