The Peterborough Regional Farmers’ Market is returning to its indoor winter location at Peterborough Square on Saturday (October 17), but it won’t be the same as last year due to the pandemic.

  • Directional traffic flows.
  • Physical distance between vendors.
  • Stanchions for managing lineups.
  • Designated dining area maintained by a dedicated staff member.
  • Hand washing and sanitizing stations.
  • Regularly cleaned and maintained ventilation system.

In addition, all market attendees are required to wear face masks, except while eating in the designated dining area. People who have a health condition that prevents them from safely wearing a mask and children under two years of age are also exempt from wearing masks.

The market runs in the lower level of Peterborough Square every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
