Walk outside, and take a big whiff, everyone. Do you smell it? It is in the air. It’s not pollen. It’s the Farmers’ Market, on its way back to the Fayetteville square.

The Fayetteville Farmers’ Market will officially return to the square on Saturday, March 20.

As with everything else, the market will look a little different at least initially with several measures in place for COVID-19 safety. Among them, masks and social distancing will be required, and market officials are asking for only serious shoppers to attend. Musicians and events will be suspended for now, and outside of service animals, dogs are not allowed this year.

New this year, pickup for the online market has been moved to the Fayetteville Public Library. The online market will open for orders from 6 p.m. on Sunday nights beginning on March 14, and will remain open for orders through 6 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. Pick up will be available on Thursdays at the library’s south parking lot from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Online orders can be placed here.

Tuesday walk-up markets will return to the square on May 4, and will be available each week from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. through September.

The Saturday market will be open from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays through November.

2021 vendor applications are available here.

See y’all at the market.
