Market Season is Open!

 

We’re so excited to have started our 12th season! We offer both on site shopping and a pre-order online market (pre-order pick up is on Wednesdays from our vendors). Masks now optional for those who are fully vaccinated (masks still required for unvaccinated individuals). We plan to continue following current city and state COVID guidelines to keep our staff, vendors, shoppers and volunteers safe. Check back for updates and see you at the market!

Wednesdays 3-7PM

COVID Update

Updated June 11, 2021

The Andersonville Farmers Market will continue to operate as a hybrid market in 2021. Shoppers can purchase directly from vendors every Wednesday from 3-7PM, or pre order from our online marketplace. Shoppers who are 60+ or with compromised immunity receive priority entrance from 3-3:30PM. 

The online market opens every Thursday at noon, with on site pre order pickup from 3-7PM the following Wednesday. If you’re 60+ or have compromised immunity you can come to the market between 3-3:30PM to pick up your orders and/or shop (no time slot reservation needed before 3:30PM).

Link shoppers can click HERE to register to use their SNAP benefits to pre-order online.  Vendors will also be accepting Link tokens for on site purchase.

If shopping on site we encourage you to make a shopping list in advance, and to use credit/debit cards or Venmo to pay vendors. This helps everyone move more quickly through the market and gives more market patrons the chance to shop.

We’re grateful to return to Catalpa Ave. this season! The wider footprint on Catalpa allows us the additional space to safely observe social distancing guidelines to protect our customers, vendors, and staff.

Market Location and Hours

This year’s market is located on Catalpa Avenue between Clark Street and Ashland Avenue. Please use the designated market entrances at the east and west end of Catalpa. The market is open for on site pickup and shopping every Wednesday from May 12 to October 20 between 3-7PM. Priority entrance is given to those 60+ or with compromised immunity from 3-3:30PM.

Current Covid 19 protocols – please check back for updates!

    1. You must be symptom-free. Stay home if you’re not feeling well and ask a friend or neighbor to pick up your order.
    2. All unvaccinated customers must wear a mask. If you are fully vaccinated you can choose whether you want to wear a mask or not.
    3. Elderly/at risk population has priority entrance between 3-3:30PM.
    4. Try to “stop, shop and go” so more shoppers can access our wonderful vendors.
    5. Continue to maintain six-foot distancing in the market.
      Please be kind to vendors, market staff/volunteers, and other shoppers. Thank you!

Pre-Ordering

Download the WhatsGood app or sign up for an online account. WhatsGood will email you the day before the market and have you choose your 15 minute pickup time slot. Pay for all your purchases with one transaction, using your credit or debit card on WhatsGood. Once you  place your order WhatsGood will email you and ask you to select a pick up time.

The pre-order market opens at noon every Thursday! You can purchase from as many vendors as you want within your order. The AFM online market closes Monday at 11PM. 

Note: There is a 5% service fee per order that goes directly to WhatsGood. There is also a small ($1) vendor pick up fee per order that goes directly to the AFM to cover increased admin costs. Any orders not claimed by the 7PM market close will be donated.

Pre-Order Pickup

Please stay home if you are not feeling well, or have any symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, fever). Ask a friend to pick up your order if you’re unwell. Please wear a mask if you’re unvaccinated.

Print out your order (or pull up on your phone) to make sure you remember to pick up all your purchases!

When picking up your pre-order, please come during your assigned time slot. Any orders not picked up by 7PM will be donated.

How do I pick up my pre-order?

Visit each vendor you ordered from and give them your name. Use the vendor map below to find each vendor’s location!

Please maintain 6 feet between yourself and others when waiting to enter and within the market.

Is there somewhere I can pick up my pre-order after 7PM?

Unfortunately, we are unable to hold orders past 7PM. Any unclaimed food will be donated.

Our curbside pick up program is currently on hold. Please check back for updates.
