Thanks in large part to our Deacon Margaret Thor and the Faith In Action team, the St. John’s-Holy Apostles Farmers’ Market is still on for Summer 2020! Shopping at this fresh produce market supports our Hmong farmer partners while also providing fresh produce to our neighbors served by Hallie Q. Brown’s food shelf and First Nations Kitchen.
Starting on Sunday, June 7, farmers will be in the St. John’s parking lot every Sunday (weather permitting) selling their fresh produce from 8am until 1pm. Because of COVID-19, new safety guidelines will be introduced, so that we can ensure everyone’s safety while still providing the community with fresh food. You can find the guidelines for volunteers here and the protocols for customers here.
We still need volunteers to help make this happen! Volunteer Market Hosts will help the market run smoothly and make sure that everyone present adheres to the safety protocols. If you’re interested in serving a shift as a Market Host volunteer, please click here for the sign-up sheet.
