COVID-19 Shopping Guidelines
Yes! The Worthington Farmers Market IS open...
Though things are a bit different operating during the Coronavirus pandemic, you're invited to #GetFreshwithUs and shop safely at the largest farmers market in Central Ohio!
First and foremost, if you or a family member is sick, please stay home! We're open all summer!
UPDATE: Effective July 7, the City of Worthington requires wearing a facial covering when in public places. We thank you, in advance, for wearing your mask at the Worthington Farmers Market in support of the health of our vendors, volunteers, staff and other customers. For more information on this requirement, click here.
8am-9am: Reserved for high-risk and vulnerable shoppers (senior citizens, immune-compromised, expectant mothers and other high-risk people).
9am-12pm: All shoppers are welcome.
Please remember to wear your facial covering while entering and shopping the Market. Market producers, volunteers and staff will be wearing facial coverings during all open Market hours.
New, Temporary Location:
Until restrictions ease, the Worthington Farmers Market has re-located to 450/500 W. Wilson Bridge Road in Worthington.
Entry to the Worthington Farmers Market will be limited to keep everyone safely and socially distanced. Please be patient if we have reached capacity. You can enter the Market as soon as another customer finishes their shopping and exits. And, please be mindful of other shoppers that may be waiting on you to finish your shopping so that they may enter the market.
Mind the Gap - Keep 6' Back!
Please maintain 6' of distance between yourself and our volunteers, vendors and other customers at all times.
No Pets Allowed:
Please leave your furry companions at home.
Please enjoy your purchases...after you leave the Market:
No sampling of products and no eating or drinking inside the Market space.
Look with your eyes, not with your hands:
Only touch the products that you intend to buy. Or, allow the farmer or food maker to select your products for you. They know when a melon is ripe and a peach is perfectly sweet and juicy!
Follow the one-way route through the Market. Pedestrian traffic only.
Pre-orders are still accepted and encouraged! You may place your orders with individual producers using our new and improved producer directory created by Can't Stop Columbus. Once your order is placed, just walk-thru and pick-up on Saturday morning.
Pre-ordering is ideal for customers who want limited exposure to crowds, have mobility restrictions or compromised immunity, prefer the convenience and efficiency of online ordering or those that want to guarantee the availability of the product they want by ordering in advance.
SNAP/EBT and Produce Perks:
You SNAP and we Match! If you are shopping with your Ohio Directions Card, please visit the Market Information booth upon entering the Market, and we'll swipe your card and issue your tokens.
Cash and Credit Card Payments Accepted:
Check with the individual producer to determine their preferred method of payment. Not every producer accepts all forms of payment. $5 Market token sales are temporarily suspended. For customers that need cash, there are three banks located in the parking lot of the Shops at Worthington Place on the way to the Market location.
Customers that have previously purchased tokens and gift certificates can spend those like cash when purchasing from vendors.
It's All About the Fresh & Local Groceries:
Music and related entertainment, Market Sprouts, “Where’s Penny”, cooking demonstrations, food trucks, etc. have been suspended until restrictions have eased.
We appreciate your support, cooperation and patience as we re-open the Market!
