New vendors, flowers at the Farmington Farmers Market

Look for an explosion of color at Saturday’s Farmington Farmers Market, with the return of flowers and bedding plants and nine new vendors.

Market flowers

Open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Walter Sundquist Farmington Pavilion in downtown Farmington, the May 23 market will welcome nine new vendors, with 12 returning from opening day.

You can enjoy the market “the old-fashioned way,” by walking through while following the new protocols to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Entrance and exit points are limited, and you must wear a mask in order to shop.

Market-goers will follow a marked, one-way path to visit vendors, and there are four hand-washing stations. Starting this week, families can shop together, and everyone may bring their own bags to help reduce plastic use.

There are also opportunities to pre-order and pre-pay vendors online or by phone.
