Farmers markets on Long Island

Even a global pandemic can't keep fruits and vegetables from growing. Farmers, deemed essential workers, have been busy planting and harvesting and their bounty is rolling out as weekly farmers markets open across Long Island.

Current state guidelines require farmers markets to space out vendors as much as possible, manage customer traffic to maintain social distancing and ban sampling, demonstrations and entertainment. Farmers are prepackaging as much food as possible to discourage customers’ touching it and keep lines moving.
