The Everett Farmers Market is doing things differently but customers are still headed to downtown Everett every Sunday. For the past two weeks it was drive up only but starting this Sunday people can walk up to the vendors.

You can only enter from two points. Hewitt and Wetmore or Pacific and Wetmore and pre-ordering online is encouraged.

Here are some tips from the Market Managers to make it an easy experience.

The Everett Farmers Market serves as your link to local farmers and processors. We are working diligently to protect public health and create a safe environment for all to make their purchases.

Our goal is to provide equitable access for all and to ensure your connection to nutritious food remains intact, viable and robust. At the Everett Farmers Market, we believe too that open-air Markets with short supply chains are the safest and best way to secure and meet your essential food needs during the current crisis.

Over the past two Sundays, the Everett Farmers Market has been a “Pre-order, Drive thru, Pick-up Style Farmers Market”, and “now”, it has been given the go ahead to resume as a “Walk-Up Customer Farmers Market” as we have done so many seasons in the past.

As Patrons, we need your help in keeping the Everett Farmers Market a safe place to purchase your favorite agricultural products. Doing so will assist in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. The safety and health are everyone’s concern. If we falter in our attempts, all is at risk, including Sundays at the Everett Farmers Market.
Thank you, and Stay Safe & Healthy!
