The Herndon Farmers Market will reopen on Thursday, June 18 as stay-at-home guidelines are relaxed throughout the Northern Virginia region.
The weekly market will take place in front of the caboose on the 700 block of Lynn Street from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Residents can begin pre-ordering from vendors online. Patrons can also pick up orders.
The market would join a handful of others that will open next week, including McLean Farmers Market. The Reston Farmers Market was among the first to open in early May.
The following shopping guidelines are also in effect to avoid spreading COVID-19:
- No more than 2 family members in the market
- Face covering strongly recommended
- No pets
- Keep a 6-foot distance from others
- One customer per stall
- Do not touch surfaces. Let vendors bag purchases.
- Credit or debit card payments preferred
- No on-site eating of purchases or sampling
- Do not linger. Get in and get out quickly.
- Leave by exits only
The county also offered the following advice:
When possible, shoppers are encouraged to preorder their items directly from the local vendors. Go to the Farmers Markets website and click on the Vendor Preorder List for a list of all market vendors and their ordering policies. You can also click on an individual market for details on the vendors at that market and preordering instructions.
At the markets, customers are asked to comply with all COVID-19 safety procedures, including limiting shoppers to two persons per household, wearing facial coverings, and maintaining 6 feet of distance from others. There may be a waiting line, and there will be a one-way path through the markets. To give everyone the best shopping experience possible, please consult the 2020 Market Guidelines infographic before your visit.
