We have a Pandemic but apparently the Farmer's Market is more important than the health and safety of us.
What precautions are being taken to make sure that the fruit AND the vendors are safe? I understand that there are similar concerns at places like Costco and Trader Joes BUT these businesses are taking actions to make their environments much safer by limiting shoppers and providing hand sanitizer.
Shame on the towns that are allowing these Farmer's markets to operate during this Pandemic.
