ARCD is working to stay abreast of the changes that our local food system is undergoing.
If you are a farmers market manager, and your market’s schedule or operations have been altered due to COVID-19, please fill out this form.
If you are a farm or market vendor, and you are now offering ordering and pickup or delivery, or another service, please fill out this form.
We want to help your businesses get the word out about how you have changed your operations to meet the needs of the community.
** This page is regularly being updated to reflect the necessary changes our region’s food system is undergoing in response to COVID-19.**
Our Find A Farmers Market page is being updated with schedule and operations changes for farmers markets, and our Farms to Folks page is being updated with local farms offering direct sales. This page outlines best practices for farmers market shoppers to follow, and what to expect when you visit your local market during COVID-19.
Monthly Farm Report – this series of interviews from Radio Bristol takes us on a journey around the region. We get to meet farmers working generations-old farms, and learn about their farms’ histories.
