Shop Category: Grocery & Speciality Food
We ARE OPEN to the public during Austin's Shelter-In-Place order.
This is critical, we need everyone to treat the farmers’ market as you would a grocery store. All food will be packaged to go and we ask that you pick up your products and leave. Do not idle at the market and do not consume any food or beverages on site.
SHOPPERS ATTENDING OUR MARKETS:
We encourage everyone who is healthy and feels safe to visit our farmers’ markets in order to procure healthy, local food from area farmers, ranchers and small businesses. But we ask that you follow these strict guidelines:
Please wear a face covering or mask.
There will be defined entrances at our markets. Customers are ONLY allowed to enter at these designated entry points. TFM Staff will be monitoring the flow of customers into and out of markets. There will be a customer queue at each entrance where customers will sanitize hands before entering our markets.
Our experience is that the beginning of market is always the busiest time. We encourage customers to come later in the market to avoid crowding, when market is typically slower.
Additionally, if you have Pre-Ordered items at our markets, we also encourage you to come later to pick up your products to avoid crowding.
There will be cones at market indicating 6 foot social distancing spacing. Customers must abide by social distancing protocol of 6 feet throughout market.
Customers will NOT be allowed to linger at market. Customers will shop for their goods and then leave the premises as soon as possible. Do not chat with fellow customers or vendors. Buy your products and move on.
Sanitize your hands upon arrival at the market and frequently as you move throughout the space. We will have an increased number of handwashing stations and hand sanitizer and all vendors are required to display hand sanitizer in each booth.
We are instituting 5 ft. of space between each vendor booth. These are not walkways, but distancing measures. DO NOT CONGREGATE HERE.
Maintain at least an arm’s length distance between other shoppers and vendors, especially while you are waiting in line.
Do NOT greet anyone at the market with hugs or handshakes.
Avoid touching your face.
No hand-to-hand contact will be allowed between vendors and shoppers. Point to the product that you would like, allow the vendor to bag it and set it down on the table before you pick it up.
Do not hand vendors payments directly. Place cash and credit cards on the table for vendors to pick up. Our vendors are now required to offer a contactless payment option like Venmo or Apple Pay (which allows you to hover your phone, but NOT TOUCH) it over their wifi-enabled reader. If you are able, we encourage you to set up Venmo or Apple Pay on your smartphone before you arrive and use them as a payment method. If you do use this method of payment, please sanitize your phone before you arrive and after you leave the market.
In an effort to minimize congestion and crowding, and so that shoppers are not distracted by adorable dogs, no dogs are allowed at the farmers’ market unless they are service dogs.
Anyone who is feeling unwell in any way should stay home.
Any shopper who is at a higher risk, including individuals who are over 65 and/or with underlying health conditions, should stay home.
Texas Farmers Market at Lakeline is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9am-1pm in the parking lot at Lakeline Mall across from Jumpstreet.
