Mom Report: Farmer’s Markets are Back with a New Look

by |

Your favorite local farmer's markets are popping up all over Greater Cincinnati and carefully following the CDC's health guidelines.

My family frequents the Loveland Farmer’s Market each spring. Although we cannot meander and enjoy the samples and music; enjoy the exhilarating scavenger hunt; or meet-and-greet the  same faces that once guided us, we are still thrilled to be able to enjoy our favorite market. We stayed in our car masked and ready to gather up tasty goodies to bring home with us.
 
Abiding by CDC guidelines health and safety guidelines, an email was sent out with instructions, including a traffic map and name template. Everything  was preorder and prepay, too. Though it is not the same as past years, I am excited to sample our goodies after dinner tonight such as the cookies and bread from Diane’s Heavenly Delights.
 
There are more markets popping up all over Greater Cincinnati. Keep in mind, they are drive-thru, prepay and preorder only. Be sure to check their websites and social media outlets for updates before heading out on your family’s farmer’s market extravaganza.  Enjoy your markets and stay well!
