Downtown IM market to end season Saturday

IRON MOUNTAIN — The last 2020 Iron Mountain Farmers & Artisans Market will be held Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.

The market is located across from the Dickinson County Library. It is managed by Nancy Schaub together with the Farmer’s Market Executive committee under the auspices of the Downtown Development Authority.

The public is asked to refrain from being in market area before 8 a.m. to give vendors a chance to set up their products safely.

“This Saturday is our last official market for the year,” Schaub said. “If the weather is decent for the next Saturday or two some of our farm vendors may chose to come on their own. Due to COVID-19 there will be no indoor markets in November and December this year.”

This week vendors will have squash, pumpkins, corn stalks, potatoes, tomatoes, beets, onions, kale and carrots.

Slagle Family Farms will be selling hot freshly prepared breakfast and lunch items. Vendors are also selling eggs, maple syrup. baked goods and apples. Crafters have a variety of handmade items

The market is following guidelines for social distancing.

“Even though we are outdoors we would prefer customers wear a mask, make liberal use of our hand sanitizing stations and maintain social distancing,” Schaub said. ” We ask the public to enter the market from the east and west entrances and refrain from walking behind the vendors — this is for our safety and yours. We ask that you refrain from touching the vendor’s merchandise and allow the vendor to assist you. A great big thank you to all our loyal patrons who have helped make the market a success this year in the face of these trying times,” she said.
