Farmers mart kicks off drive-thru sales

SoVaNow.com / March 26, 2020


The Downtown South Boston Farmers Market is launching a drive-thru system for the purchase of locally produced foods and goods as it adjusts to the Coronavirus.

“It is extremely important to us to keep the market going in order to provide our wonderful patrons with fresh nutritious products during this time while keeping health and safety in mind,” said Market Manager Megan Throckmorton-Harris.

With implementation of the drive-thru system, patrons will be required to pre-order by telephone, or by using online platforms. Customers also can fill out an order form at the market while staying inside their vehicles. The Farmers Market will limit personal contacts by asking drive-up patrons to remain in their cars at all times.

Farmers Market sellers and handlers stress that it is important for the public to know that COVID-19 is not transferred through food consumption.

“Our vendors and Farmers the Market Board continue to work hard during this epidemic and want the community to know that it is our priority to strive to keep you safe and healthy while also providing you with wholesome products,” said Throckmorton-Harris.

“Please do not leave your car. The market is doing its best to keep everyone safe and healthy,” she said.

Below is a list of current Farmers Market vendors with their contact information and goods for purchase this Saturday, March 28, from 8 a.m.-noon.

Busy Bee Farm, Sherry Edie, 321-848-4118 — blueberry muffins, banana nut muffins zucchini nut muffins, apple praline bread, chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin spice muffins, butternut squash, canned butternut squash, eggs, and cinnamon rolls.
