Public Health and COVID-19 Updates

Updated November 15, 2021

Ontario’s farmers’ markets are a safe choice for shoppers.  Market vendors are required to follow all Covid-19 requirements and markets are responsible to have their operations plan approved by their local public health unit.

As Ontario’s farmers’ markets are considered essential, customers do not have to provide proof of vaccination. Markets continue to ensure a physical distance of two metres is maintained and face coverings are still required at indoor markets.

Please refer to the Public Safety Protocols for Ontario’s farmers’ markets section of our website for all up-to-date requirements.
