Certified Farmers’ Markets Considered Essential Activity/Business

As clarified in the recent Order of the Nevada County Public Health Officer issued on April 15, 2020, Certified Farmer’s Markets (CFM), as well as Farm and Produce Stands are considered “Essential Businesses.” Producers and market managers are reminded that they should comply with California Dept. of Public Health Guidance regarding Retail Food, Beverage, and other Related Service Venues issued on March 16, 2020. Additional guidance can also be found on Environmental Health’s Farmers Markets TOOLKIT.

The open-air environment of a CFM or Farm Stand along with social distancing (6 ft.) will allow for a low risk environment for residents of Nevada County to obtain the necessary and nutrient rich foods for their family. CFMs and Farm Stands offer an alternative to shopping at a grocery store and have a lower risk, as produce at a CFM or Farm Stand travels directly from the farm and is handled at a much lower rate than in the commercial system. Not to mention, produce sold at CFM’s and Farm Stands are at peak ripeness, freshness, and taste.

As we continue through this unprecedented time, more than ever have we come to understand the importance of our local food system. The County of Nevada and the County Department of Agriculture urges residents to support their local farmers and producers by shopping at local CFMs and Farm Stands. Please visit our current list of Certified Markets.
