Lockport Farmers Market Gives Details on Indoor Winter Location

LOCKPORT – November 7th is opening day for the Lockport Community Farmers Indoor Market! Located at 140 South St, Harrison Place, the market will be open every 1st and 3rd Saturday through May. The market hours are 10am to 2pm. Since moving indoors we will be strictly following the guidelines provided to us from NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets. Please note the following: 

Please stay home if you feel or you are sick. 

We will be enforcing a maximum building capacity of 50 customers in the market space. Please only send 1 person from a family or group to the market. We advise not to bring children if possible. 

Face masks are required to enter into the market. All vendors and staff will be required to wear face masks at all times. We strongly advise not to bring children, however any child 2 and over are required to wear face masks. 

Do not eat on premises. All food is meant to be taken home and enjoyed. 

Only vendors and their staff are allowed to handle products. Customers should not touch produce or products until they are purchased. 

Please adhere to 6’ social distancing from customers, vendors, and market staff.

We are excited to continue our market and provide the community with fresh and local produce, food products, artisans and crafters. All vendors accept cash. The market provides a coin system for patrons who want to use their credit or debit cards in exchange for market tokens which every vendor can accept. Customers can also use their EBT cards for wooden SNAP tokens that can be used to purchase any SNAP approved item. 

In addition to our physical market we will be offering an online store where customers can pre-order from participating vendors. The online store is located at our web-site, 

www.lockportcommunitymarket.com and will open the Sunday before the physical market at 10am. For instance the first online store will open on Sunday, November 15th and all pre-orders will be available on November 21st between 11am to 2pm. 

SNAP customers can use their EBT benefits online as well. At checkout enter “SNAP-Customer” in the coupon code space. When picking up your pre-order please bring your EBT card to finish the transaction, since all EBT transactions must be done in person at pick up.
