Picture This: Opening Day at the Wilkes-Barre Farmers’ Market

The Weekly Market Is Back With New Safety Measures

Today marked the first Wilkes-Barre Farmers’ Market of the season. Nine local farms set up their stands on Public Square for this summertime tradition.

For now, the market will only feature local farms and fresh produce. The city will consider bringing back food trucks and craft vendors later in the summer.

The farmers’ market will follow all regulations and recommendations from the CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Vendors will be required to wear masks. The city asks that visitors wear masks if social distancing is not possible.

The market will be held every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through November 19. Check out our photos for all the highlights from this perfect summer day.
