It must be spring. The Tuesday Night Farmers Market opened tonight on Sonoma Plaza, Tuesday, May 4.
The modified market — fruit, produce and packaged foods; no food trucks — initiated its 2021 season, 3:30 pm – 6:30 through September.
The tradition is presented by the City of Sonoma in partnership with the Sonoma Valley Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s market will continue to feature farmers and agricultural vendors, and has expanded to include packaged food and artisan vendors. See the full list here.
It’s a little easier to peruse and pinch, compared to the strict protocols of last year. Shoppers are no longer required to enter and exit through controlled entry points and there is no requirement to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test to shop.
Health and safety measures that align with the latest Public Health practices, including wearing a facial covering within the market shopping zone, remain in place.
