NOW: Farmers markets open for summer amid coronavirus precautions

MISHAWAKA, Ind. — The Mishawaka Farmers Market looks to capitalize on South Bend’s success, with its first farmers market of the year to be held outdoors at Central Park Sunday morning, though with extra safety requirements.

“We’ve put out a list of guidelines to help people stay safe while they are out at the market,” Mishawaka Parks Special Events Coordinator Brittni Gendron said.
“It is an open air market, but when you’re out and about you’re going to be coming in potentially close contact with people so that’s why we put those in place.”

One of its vendors will be Mom’s Kieflies, whose owner is excited to have back to back selling days.

“To be able to be open and to sell and to present our wares in a nice comfortable sitting outside, I think people are really going to enjoy being out,” owner Trudy Mark said.

Gendron confirmed to ABC 57 that the Mishawaka Farmers Market will take place rain or shine each Sunday from 11-3.
