BEAVER DAM, Ky. — While the COVID-19 pandemic brought the world to a halt for several months, things are opening back up and the Beaver Dam Community Farmers Market has taken many precautions to protect its customers while still providing them with friendly service and delicious fruits, vegetables, meat, baked goods and much, much more. The Beaver Dam Farmers Market will open from 8 a.m.-noon tomorrow, June 6, at the Beaver Dam Family Park.
On its Facebook page, the Farmers Market has posted the guidelines it will follow, for the time being, during the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be one way in and one way out with a one-way flow of traffic. There will be spaces in between vendors and customers are asked to shop with their eyes, not their hands. A route through the vendors will be taped on the floor and the Farmers Market will be taped off around the sides.
Below is a map of how the Farmers Market will be set-up.
Farmers Market customers can also place pre-orders from vendors and pay through Facebook Messenger, if they so choose. Vendors will also bag your order, to either be picked up at their table or delivered to your car on market days. When purchasing items, try to use cards or small bills to limit having to make change.

Just to give you an idea of what a couple of vendors will have on hand tomorrow, check out the Facebook pages of Cedar Hill Baskets and the Kentucky Pie Shop. You could visit the Farmers Market tomorrow and leave with a basket full of pies. Doesn’t that sound delightful?
After being holed up for weeks, a nice visit to the Beaver Dam Farmers Market will do us all some good. We’ll see you there!
