ILFMA COVID-19 Toolkit

ILFMA COVID-19 Toolkit was created to provide farmers markets with resource guidelines for operating a farmers market safely during COVID-19.  The guidelines have been updated to reflect operations for Phase 4 Restore Illinois. The guidelines are dated.  Indoor guidance is dated October 1, 2020.  

ILFMA Guidelines reflect best practices as local jurisdictions, local health departments, have final say on rules that must be followed.  The ILFMA Guidelines for Phase 4 were vetted by the Illinois Department of Public Health and are also available on the Illinois Department of Agriculture website.  

Download the guide for Farmers Markets and Customers, below. There are also downloadable signs for booths and products.

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.
