Lockport, NY, October 15th, 2020– October 31st will be the last Saturday of the Lockport Community Farmers Market’s Summer outdoor season. October 31st is also the last day we can issue and vendors are able to accept Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB). DUFB is a program administered by the Field and Fork Network that allows our market to double EBT benefits up to $20. This program allows customers to double the amount they can spend on fresh fruits and vegetables while offering as an incentive to customers to spend their dollars locally.
The market will move into its Winter location the following week, November 7th, located at 140 South St. Harrison Place, Building #3. The Market will take place every 1st and 3rd Saturday and will be open from 10am to 2pm. We will be strictly adhering to guidelines set forth by the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets. Face masks are mandatory, 6 feet social distancing will be enforced, and we will be monitoring the customer flow to maintain building capacity.
The market will also be offering an online store that will offer local produce and food products from participating vendors. The online store will open 10am on the Sunday prior to the market on Saturday. For instance, the first online store will open Sunday, November 15th at 10am and pick up will be the following Saturday, November 21st. Pick up will be from 12:30 to 1:30 at the winter market location of 140 South St Harrison Place, Building #3. Shoppers are more than welcome to shop the market and then pick up pre orders since not all vendors are participating on the online store. Also, if you have EBT benefits you are eligible to shop the online store. At check out enter in “SNAP-Customer” in the coupon
code spot. At pick up you must present your EBT card since all EBT transactions must be done in person. All items that are not picked up will be returned to the vendors at the end of the market day.
We want to sincerely thank all of our customers who have participated in safe shopping and their continued support of our market.
