Waukesha Farmers Market 2020 Updates and Guidelines
Dated April 25, 2020 – Waukesha Farmers’ Market Guidelines during COVID-19
These are subject to change when new information is shared with the management team.
Farmers markets, like grocery stores are considered an essential food resource. Wisconsin’s Safer at Home Order has exempted them from being closed and from the mass gathering restriction instituted as a result of COVID-19.
The Waukesha Farmers’ Market has decided to adopt these new guidelines in order to facilitate a safe opening of our market after consultation with the Waukesha County Health Department.
1. At this time, produce and product vendors will be permitted in the market as allowed by the State Order.
2. People will travel in a clockwise direction throughout the market.
3. No sampling of products will be allowed.
4. Vendor set-up will be modified to allow more space between selling areas.
5. Booth spaces will be modified to increase the space between vendors and customers.
6. Social distancing will be practiced throughout the market.
7. All prepared foods will be pre-packaged for takeout consumption.
8. Vendors will handle products until given to the customer.
9. All vendors will have hand sanitizer at their booths.
10. Customers are encouraged to bring their own individual hand sanitizer as well.
11. Dogs are not allowed at this time.
12. Parents are advised to closely supervise children while in the market. Children should always be kept within an arm’s length of their parents .
13. No musicians, activities, or special events will occur at this time.
14. If you are running a fever, coughing, or generally not feeling well, please stay home.
15. We are encouraging everyone to use common sense and act responsibly when attending the market.
16. 2 Porta-Potties are available. One toilet will be designated for vendors & handicapped customers only at this time. This will provide greater safety by separating vendor use from that of the general public.

The Waukesha Farmers Market is an open-air, producer-only, public market that operates every Saturday, from the first week in May through the last week in October. The market runs from 8:00 am to noon, rain or shine.
The Waukesha Farmers’ Market is held in Historic Downtown Waukesha and takes place along the North side of Fox River – across from the former location in Riverfront Plaza.
After nearly 19 seasons of operation, the Waukesha Farmers’ Market is a thriving asset to our community and the vendors that make it all possible. The market has not only become a place where local residents can purchase affordable Wisconsin grown products, but a meeting place and popular Saturday morning ritual for hundreds of people.
