To help keep everyone safe at the Midtown Farmers Market, we are taking additional precautions in light of COVID-19. Much like a grocery store, the Midtown Farmers Market plays a critical role in the community to maintain food access to shoppers of all income levels, and it is important to support our local farmers, growers, and vendors at this time. Per the county of Sacramento’s updated health order, food trucks are now considered an essential business, however the Midtown Farmers Market is only allowing a few ethnically diverse prepared food vendors to return to the market under the condition that our vendors and patrons practice physical distancing and only consume food off site. Please help be part of the solution. To help keep everyone safe, the Midtown Farmers Market has put the following preventative measures in place, including:
If you plan to attend the Midtown Farmers Market, please practice social distancing, wash your hands with soap and water, and cover your cough. If you are sick, please stay home.
Hosted by the Midtown Association and managed by Unseen Heroes, this free, family-friendly market takes place year-round, every Saturday, on 20th street between J and L streets. The Midtown Farmers Market showcases local agriculture, prepared foods, and artisans and crafters while providing an opportunity for Midtown residents and business owners to discover regionally grown foods. Anchored in the heart of Midtown, the market serves as a lively and fun gathering place where Sacramentans can come together to shop and enjoy the community with neighbors and visitors alike. Experience Food Demonstrations, Live Music, a Kids Play Area, and more all next to the popular MARRS building that is packed with stores and restaurants to further enhance your Saturday experience. Thanks for making the Midtown Farmers Market part of your weekend routine!
Since we’re a year-round outdoor event, inclement weather can negatively impact the safety of the market for vendors and visitors. If there is a 80% or greater chance of rain, or consistent winds projected at 15 mph or greater, we take a week off, as this tends to happen two or three times per year. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter for weather and activity announcements or to plan your visit.
