HOLLAND, Mich. — The Holland Farmers Market in downtown Holland will look a lot different when it opens for the 2020 season Wednesday.

You'll be able to shop essential items like food, plants, personal hygiene products and pet supplies every Wednesday and Saturday from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.

The market will allow the first hour each day for people who are immunocompromised, age 60 and up, and pregnant women. If you have been sick in the last 14 days, you are asked to stay home.

Organizers say they consulted with state and local officials before deciding to open the market for the season with customer safety a top priority.

Customers are strongly encouraged to wear masks while they shop and must keep social distancing while shopping or waiting in line. Organizers also ask people to shop alone and without children, and not to litter PPE on the ground.

Customers are advised to wash all produce and wipe down all food packages before eating and storing products at home. You are not allowed to eat food on-site at this time.

All vendors accept cash and a number of vendors also accept credit card.
