The Matiowski Farmers' Market looks a little different this year, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. A few new restrictions were in place during yesterday's start to the season, but over all Market Coordinator Helena Devins says it was a great first market.
"I found the first day was definitely a good dry run. We had lots of people back under the tent, and we're ready for another season. I was a good first start," she said.
Devins was pleased to see people wearing masks, which are strongly encouraged, and is looking forward to the rest of the market season.
"I'm probably going to move a few vendors around so we don't get some of the bottlenecks that happened at the top of the morning. We'll try to resolve some of those issues, and there may be some new guidelines next week, but I think we definitely had a good place to start," she said.
Devins estimates 500 customers attended the market.
The market takes place every Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. under the white cap pavilion.
