Before coronavirus and the public health crisis, the farmers and artisans market was scheduled to be in its regular open, outdoor setting, April through October, at City Hall where visitors could freely walk around.
Schreiner said the recent adjustments are in place at least until the end of May.
“We are doing what the city asked us to do,” she said.
Online ordering is robust, she added. The first 50 orders averaged about $100 each, she said.
A $5 fee is added to the total amount of all items purchased in one online order. Schreiner said those funds are used for website maintenance, credit card fees, and supplies needed during pickups such as hand sanitizer and additional bags.
There is no additional fee for items bought from vendors outside City Hall when customers pickup their online orders on Saturdays.
Saturday hours to pickup items is 9:30-noon. tinyurl.com/y8cyfnbq
