A Visit from the Art Truck!

The Arlington Art Truck visits the Farmers’ Market this Saturday with pre-packaged kid’s art projects for you to take away and make at home.  Pick up your art kits from the Truck and then head to the Market for snacks to tide you over while you create!  We should always make time for art!  Find your inspiration at Barrett Elementary School on Saturday, October 24, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.  And don’t forget your pre-ordersWe’ll see you (and your face masks) at the Market!

Market Policy Reminders:

No changes as Arlington moves to Phase 3

  • Face coverings are required for all persons attending the market.  Vendors are also required to wear face masks, as well as food-handling gloves.  
  • All customers should enter the market through the Barrett School parking lot entrance closest to N. Henderson.   Only one-way traffic will be allowed in the market with the exit in the parking lot closest to N. Park.  Once they have completed their shopping, customers can return to the N. Henderson entrance via the sidewalk near the school behind the vendor tents.
  • Gatekeepers will be monitoring how many customers are in market space at any one time in order to comply with the requirements of physical distancing.  Please be patient as there may be an appropriately-spaced line to enter.
  • Almost all food sold in the market will be prepackaged to minimize browsing.  Discussions with individual vendors should in compliance with the 6-foot physical distancing rule. 
  • Credit card payments are encouraged by most vendors.
  • Only one adult family member should enter the market to pick up purchases.
  • Kindly leave kids at home. We love children, but they add to crowding at market and pose a risk to our senior shoppers.
  • Please don’t come to market if you are unwell or at high-risk.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you return home.
  • If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of the market managers.

An interactive Market Map for each week of the Market is always available here.
