Farmers Market and Art Walk

          

July 27, 2020

To all of the Vendors and participants of the 2020 Show Low Farmer’s Market:

The Show Low Farmer’s Market has been closed for the month of July in compliance     with Governor Ducey’s recent orders.  With the continuing critical levels of Covid-19 in Arizona, Governor Ducey has now extended these orders indefinitely.  In accordance with this extension the Farmer’s Market will remain closed for the remainder of the 2020 season.
Due to the unusual circumstances of the pandemic which gave rise to this closure, we have decided to refund all vendors for the vendor fees paid for the remaining 9 weeks of the originally scheduled Market for 2020. This is a one-time only refund due to the unique situation involved.  
We look forward to resuming the Show Low Farmer’s Market in 2021, and look forward to your return.  Until then, we wish you all good health!  

 

Julia Edens, Board President
Show Low Main Street                                                                                                                            Showlowmainstreet@gmail.com

 

Due to COVID-19 in 2020 

We have made some changes to how we do things at the Market

BE SAFE, RESPECTFUL, PATIENT AND KIND

  • All customers, vendors or volunteers must stay home if they are sick or if someone in their household is sick
  • The CDC recommends that you stay home if you are an older person and/or have a serious underlying health condition
  • Do not touch products, let our vendors serve you
  • Social Distancing of 6 feet
  • MASKS ARE NOW REQUIRED – MASK UP ARIZONA
  • One Way traffic — Keep to your right, following the Arrows
  • Sanitize and Wash Hands often
  • Hand washing stations are located at the restrooms, near th 9th and 11th street entrances
  • Sanitizing stations are available at each vendor booth
  • SERVICE ANIMALS ONLY AT THIS TIME per the Governor’s Order

BE A HEALTH ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF, YOUR LOVED ONES, AND YOUR COMMUNITY.

We strongly advise customers, vendors, and staff to follow these best practices according to public health guidelines:

  • Do not attend the markets if you or someone in your household is sick.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially: after going to the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; before/during/after preparing food; after touching an animal or animal waste; after touching garbage.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. This includes thoroughly washing produce before consumption and regularly washing your reusable produce bags.
  • For more info about infection control visit www.cdc.gov

No longer accepting applications for jewelry, Kettle Corn, Jams, Jellies, Soaps, Lotions, Candles or Hot dogs.  We always need edible items and produce, so if you are a food vendor, gardener or farmer… please give me a call 🙂

Vendor Requirements:

ALL local market vendors must reside within Arizona or New Mexico to be eligible to vend at the Market.

It is recommended that each vendor carry liability insurance, however it is not required. Each vendor must sign a release and indemnification form.

Your application must be on file and approved at least one week in advance of your first Market Saturday so we can add your name to our special event permit.  The City of Show Low does not require our vendors to purchase a City of Show Low business license to participate in our events.  It is each vendors responsibility to know the business/vending laws for selling their product in the City of Show Low, Navajo County and State of Arizona.

ALL resale items have to be juried and decided by the Market Team to make sure our Market continues to be the BEST Farmers Market & Art Walk in the White Mountains of Arizona.

Parking Requirements:

VENDOR PARKING IS ON OR PAST HALL STREET.  WE ALL need to park as far as we can walk and let the customers park as close as possible. It not only is the considerate thing to do for all of our customers, but very smart business too. So, ALL VENDORS can park on the Hall Street or further from the market.

CUSTOMER PARKING is LDS Chapel, 9th and 11th streets for an easy walk to Cooley

When Your Application Has Been Processed, you will be added to our email list and receive information as a group.

Thank you for your interest in our Market!
