How Idaho Farmers Markets Are Adapting Their Business Because Of The Coronavirus
Farmers markets are a staple of spring and summer in Idaho. Strolling through the crowd, chatting with old friends, browsing seasonal and buying local produce is part of a ritual for many folks on the weekend.
But crowds and face-to-face contact aren’t exactly pandemic friendly, and this is just another industry hit by the coronavirus.
Luckily, farmers markets across the state have found ways to adapt their operations to keep customers —and farmers — safe.
Joining Idaho Matters today remotely are Tamara Cameron, the manager of the Boise Farmers Market, Mona Warchol, the executive director of the Capital City Market, and Katie Zubia, the president of the Wood River Farmers Market in Ketchum and Hailey.
As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
