Dunsmuir Farmers Market will open for the season next Thursday, June 25, from 4 to 7 p.m.

Fresh, local produce will be available along with food and crafts. The market is held on Spruce Street between Dunsmuir and Shasta Avenues, adjacent to Dunsmuir Brewery Works and across from Children’s Park.

Some changes this year will make the market as safe as possible during COVID-19. Customers are asked to wear masks to protect others in the market. Market volunteers will have masks if customers need them.

The numbers of customers in the market at one time will be limited, and social distancing will be maintained. Stay home if you are ill.

The market asks for customers’ patience and cooperation with these efforts to keep our community as safe and healthy as possible.

Many people look forward to the delicious, fresh produce and artisan food and crafts every year. Because Farmers Markets are considered essential services, helping both consumers and farmers, they are allowed to be open with modifications.

EBT and WIC purchases will be matched up to $20 as long as funds are available. WIC Senior Farmers Market checks are also matched. This match allows low-income families, seniors, and other individuals to stretch their food dollars and access high quality, fresh local vegetables and fruit.

Additional information about the market is available at the Dunsmuir Farmers Market Facebook page. Vendors and customers can call the Market Manager at (530) 925-4355.
