We Open
May 12, 2021!

 

We’re looking forward to our 12th season! We plan to operate as a hybrid market, with on site shopping and a pre-order online market (pre-order pick up is on Wednesdays from our vendors). We will continue to operate following current city and state COVID guidelines to keep our staff, vendors, shoppers and volunteers safe. More details coming soon. See you at the market!

COVID Update

Updated April 1, 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 (coming soon). Entry between 3-3:30PM will be reserved for those who are over 60 or at increased risk for COVID-19.

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

Link shoppers can email market@andersonville.org to register to use their SNAP benefits to pre-order online. Please include your name, email and zip code in your email. 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. North entrance at Clark St and Catalpa is for on site shoppers, and south entrance is reserved for pre-order entry. The market is open for on site pickup and shopping every Wednesday from May 12 to October 20 between 3-7PM. The beginning of the market from 3-3:30PM is reserved for customers who are over 60 and/or at-risk.

Current Covid 19 protocols – please check back for updates!

  4. When purchasing at the market we encourage the use of credit or debit cards or Venmo.

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. A mask is required to enter the market.

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. They’ll place your order at the end of their table for a contact-free pickup. Vendor map coming soon!

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.

We are currently re-evaluating our curbside pick up program. Please check back for updates.
