The farmers market movement has only grown during the pandemic, as home cooking became a priority, and home cooks realized the value of local food sources. In 2021, Long Island has 36 weekly markets, from Valley Stream to Montauk, Port Washington to Shelter Island.

Farmers markets are governed by New York State’s and Markets and must adhere to strict guidelines which include maintaining space between vendors and social distance among customers, and ensuring minimal customer contact with food — no more sampling. They must also ensure that all customers over the age of two wear a mask and, according to executive order, must deny access to anyone who refuses to wear one.
