PRINCE GEORGE – As a response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Prince George Farmers Market launched online pre-orders effective May 8.

Online pickup service to begin May 16: An online order publication has been developed to allow customers to pre-order merchandise weekly through Thursday at 4 p.m. beginning May 8.  Merchandise will then be picked up at Scott Park from 8-10 a.m. on Saturdays beginning May 16.

Farmers Market open to the public on May 23: The market was set to open June 13, but after the Governor’s last press conference stating that browsing at the market would be allowed, that date has been moved up to May 23, just in time for Memorial Day weekend.  The market will continue to fulfill pre-orders for curbside pickup even after the market is open.

Customers and vendors will be asked to continue social distancing while at the market.  No food sampling will be permitted while at the market.

For more information, contact Corrie Hurt, Market Manager at (804) 722-8777.
