Farmers markets will look a little different this year due to COVID-19 and social distancing guidelines put in place across the community, state, and world.

The Sauk Rapids Market that is usually set up in the parking lot of Coborn's on Thursdays will be operating this year as a drive-thru market.

In a post to their Facebook page they gave further detail:

As mentioned before, this summer because of Covid we will be having a drive thru market. We ask that everyone stay in their vehicles and follow the signs. There will be people directing to let you know where to go.

The event will be operating in this drive-thru style to start the year and hopefully be operating like normal towards the end of summer.

This farmers market features local vendors selling fresh produce, baked goods, snacks, crafts, and more. I always seem to find something awesome to take home with me from this market, it will be interesting to see how it operates in a drive-thru capacity. I have total faith it will work out great, how can it not when the outcome involves locally grown and made products.

The first even of the year will be held on June 4th from 3-6 PM.
