Phase 3 Update
In accordance with the BCCDC guidelines, farmers' markets are an essential service and are exempt from requiring proof of vaccination.
While Farmers Markets are no longer specifically addressed in the PHO, our priority is keeping the market safe and accessible to all. As per the Step 3 BC Restart Plan, masks are not required but they are recommended. If you are not wearing a mask, please continue to ensure that you are facilitating social distancing and giving 2m of space to others. At EFM, we understand that the pandemic has impacted people differently and we encourage everyone to be aware and respectful of others' needs & comfort levels during this transition. We continue to recommend hand-washing (or sanitizing) and ask that you stay home if you are unwell or are exhibiting symptoms.
Getting immunized against COVID-19 by getting two doses of the vaccine is the most effective way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
