Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are big changes with the Sitka Farmers Market in 2020. We had to greatly scale back our operation this year due to health restrictions and space limitations since we had to change locations. This year we will just have our two regular produce vendors — the Sitka Local Foods Network farm stand and Middle Island Gardens. We also are switching to an online ordering system, where people create accounts and order products during the week using the Salt and Soil Marketplace, http://www.saltandsoilmarketplace.com. Our online ordering period will be from 5 p.m. on Tuesday through 8 p.m. on Thursday, with produce available for pick up from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays at St. Peter’s Fellowship Farm (behind St. Peter’s By The Sea Episcopal Church, 611 Lincoln St.). Even though our market is reduced in size, we will have twice as many pick-up days than normal — a soft opening on June 20, then every Saturday in July (4, 11, 18, 25), August (1, 8, 15, 22, 29), and September (5, 12, 19, 26). We hope to be able to offer a full market again in 2021. For more details, go to http://www.sitkalocalfoodsnetwork.org.
