Farmer's markets are deemed essential businesses in Illinois under the guidance of Illinois Governor JB Pritzker.
The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Health Collaborative is opening its market this Saturday and predictably, there will be some limitations. Chelsea Campbell with the ALMH market indicates they will ask those that enter the market to wear masks, maintain a six-feet distance between everyone and they may even have to limit the number of people that can enter the building.
The market stores open at noon on Mondays and will close at noon on Thursdays. Campbell indicates they have vendors that have listed their items online and you can find the Market at almh.org and seek out their page and find their online listings.
The produce vendors at the market are always very popular and Campbell says they are anticipating an abundance of spring fruits and vegetables. They are excited to have popular vendors back this year and are equally excited to welcome new vendors to the market.
The farmer's market will be at their regular location at the Logan County fairgrounds. Campbell says even the opening for the season is a week later than they had scheduled, they feel very fortunate to offer the market to the community during this time.
