The City of West Hollywood will reopen the Helen Albert Certified Farmers’ Market at Plummer Park from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m on Monday, Sept. 14th with new COVID-19 safety measures in effect.
The Farmers’ Market features organic and farm fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, fresh fish, and more. The City will implement a priority “Senior Hour” from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., which will allow customers ages 55+ to have priority access to the market. Seniors may approach the front of the line near the entrance during this time.
While attending the Farmers’ Market, all customers, vendors, and staff are required to wear protective face coverings in accordance with City of West Hollywood requirements, practice safe physical distancing of at least six feet and practice appropriate cough and hand hygiene (cough into your elbow; wash hands or use hand sanitizer frequently). Customers are also being asked not to touch the products and allow only vendors to handle the produce/products before buying.
The City of West Hollywood also encourages customers to limit interactions with other customers and vendors and to move through the Farmers’ Market as quickly as possible in order to allow for others waiting for entrance to have an opportunity to shop.
The market is located at the north parking lot of Plummer Park at 1200 N. Vista Street. In order to maintain safety protocols at the Farmers’ Market, there will be one entrance on N. Vista Street. Due to the limited number of customers allowed inside the market at once, the queue to enter will maintain social distancing of at least six feet and wrap north to the corner of N. Vista Street and Fountain Avenue.
One-hour parking is available adjacent to the market in the north parking lot for customers only. Three-hour parking is also available in the south lot of Plummer Park.
The Farmers’ Market will remain open, subject to customer and vendor compliance with food handling, face covering, and social distancing requirements.
