SHOPPING AT IOWA GROWN MARKET DURING COVID-PANDEMIC

Thursday, May 28, 2020

It is our priority to continue providing our community with fresh, local food in a safe environment. Due to the Governor's Emergency Disaster Proclamation regarding COVID-19, we've made some changes at Iowa Grown Market. We ask that you please keep your trips to our market quick and purposeful for essential items in addition to following these simple guidelines:

 

ILLNESS: If you have a fever or are showing signs and symptoms of being ill, do not visit the market.

 

SANITIZER: Use the available hand sanitizer.

 

ONE-SHOPPER POLICY: Please, when at all possible, just one person shop for their family at a time.

KEEP SOCIAL DISTANCE: Use the designated entry and exit points, and keep at least 6 feet apart from other customers.

 

NO PRODUCT HANDLING: Ask for the product you desire so we may bag it for you. Reuse bags are okay to bring.

 

MASKS: We are wearing masks and encourage you to do the same.

 

SHOP EFFICIENTLY: Expedite your trip so we can safely serve as many visitors as possible.

 

NO EVENTS: Kid activities and events (like our Annual Community Corn Roast) are canceled for this year.

 

BE PATIENT: As we all adjust to these new guidelines, we ask you to please be patient.

 

Thank you for your cooperation and support. We really appreciate it! Stay informed by checking our social media and website often.

Your farmers & friends,

Bethany & Vince

FARM OPERATIONS DURING COVID-PANDEMIC

Thursday, April 16, 2020

 

In recent weeks we've had many people reaching out and expressing concern about our farm operations during the COVID pandemic. We appreciate your concern and support! Getting fresh food to our community in a safe and healthy way is extremely important to us and our number one priority!

 

One of the most obvious changes we can make at this time is expanding our CSA program. This is a program that requires minimal social interaction and guarantees a weekly share of fresh produce for your family. More information, including how to sign up, can be found HERE. The new deadline to join is May 10th.

 

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY JOINED OUR 2020 CSA, there are no changes to announce.

 

Like most of you, we are closely monitoring developments from health professionals on how to safely operate in a COVID-world. Our road-side market will be open in some capacity this season. As new information is made available, we are exploring and changing our methods to safely sell produce to our customers. Here are some things we are almost certain of:

 

  • The market will look and operate different than it has in the past.

  • There will be an emphasis on social distancing and food safety.

  • We need our customers to be flexible and patient as we navigate these uncharted times.

 

With all sincerity, we'd also like to ask friends, neighbors and customers to refrain from visiting the farm at this time.

 

This season is definitely a work in progress and changing constantly. Please keep in touch via social media and email to stay informed on developing information pertaining to our market farm. Your love and support is more important to us than ever before and we appreciate your efforts to keep our community healthy and safe!

Your farmers & friends,

Bethany & Vince
