Gisborne Farmers Market

Farmers Market Cancellation  

Until further notice

 

Due to the recent developments around Covid-19 and the increase to Alert Level 4, the Gisborne Farmers Market Committee has agreed the Market be cancelled until such a time as we can re-open safely.

Although this will be a disappointment to many of you, we cannot in good faith continue to operate a market which creates a gathering of people, at a time when we must isolate from others. The Gisborne Farmers Market provides a wide range of healthy locally produced food, but we cannot put the community at risk with regards to the spread of this disease.

We are currently working with our vendors, some of whom are busy working out if they are classed as “Essential Businesses” and registering as such. We believe a number of vendors will be able to continue to provide you with your favorite Farmers Market products, just via a different means. Many vendors have their own websites or Facebook pages, so if you have some favorites, look them up. We will share their activities on the Market page whenever possible.

We will continue to update you via Facebook, and our weekly phone calls with More FM as to what our vendors are doing and how you reach them. Some vendors will not be able to continue during this time for a wide variety of reasons. This shutdown will be difficult for our vendors, many of whom rely on the income from this market. Again, please keep an eye on Facebook for Market and Vendor information going forward and continue to support our vendors wherever possible. When we come out the other side of this, we look forward to seeing you all at the market again.

Thank you all for your support, and take care of yourselves
