    WEST LIBERTY, Iowa–While COVID-19 delayed the opening of the West Liberty Farmers Market, its director, Gretchen Nollman, and its vendors found safe and workable ways to operate this year.

    Nollman explained that the market will have several new procedures this year. In line with Governor Kim Reynold’s disaster declaration, the market will now allow food vendors and crafters to sell at the market. This will allow area residents to purchase fresh produce, eggs, baked goods, and handmade gifts.

    To encourage social distancing, vendors will set up booths at least six feet apart. No seller may have more than nine people shopping their stand at once. Shoppers and vendors alike may choose to wear a mask. As an extra protection, Nolman hopes to set up a portable hand washing station.

    As in years past, the market will take place each Wednesday. Shoppers may come and buy locally grown or baked food between 4 and 7:00 p. m.

    Though this year’s market may look different, Nollman encourages you to come out and support local farmers and the surrounding small businesses. “Shop local, keep your small business members going, and you get to enjoy a nice, quiet, and fun community while shopping,” emphasized Nollman.

    Updated June 23

    Due to a lack of vendor sign ups, the West Liberty Farmers Market will not open this year.
