Covid-19 Toolkit

Phase 5: Outdoor Farmers Market Guidelines

Creating Guidelines for Better Practices

ILFMA COVID-19 Toolkit was created to provide farmers markets with resource guidelines for operating a farmers market safely during COVID-19. The guidelines are dated. The current guidance for outdoor farmers markets was published in June 2021. Changes are for Restore Illinois Phase 5. Attachments are found at the bottom of this page.

ILFMA Guidelines reflect best practices.  Local jurisdictions, local health departments, have final say on rules that must be followed by each market.  

ILFMA has published a ‘love your market, love your farmer, wear a mask campaign.  All graphics can be found on the ILFMA Facebook page.  Please download and share.
