Westwood Village Farmers’ Market

COVID-19 and the Westwood Village Farmers’ Market

We are doing everything we can to keep our community healthy and safe while still providing critical food access. To that end, we’re making some immediate changes in our market. These will be in place through March, and longer as necessary.

Note: these measures exceed the guidelines currently posted by the California Department of Public Health.

  • We are banning all open food-sampling
  • We are eliminating our market seating area
  • We are suspending all non-essential activities including live entertainment, kids crafts, face painting, and volunteerism
  • We are suspending the stamping of market rewards cards, the bring-a-bag, take-a-bag program, and the market bucks program
  • We are encouraging social distancing by adjusting market configurations

 

In addition to being a direct source to local farmers and food artisans, we love that our market functions as a community hub. But right now it needs to be strictly a place for purchasing local products. We urge everyone to refrain from shaking hands and hugging, and to keep a distance from your fellow market goers while waiting in lines. If you’re feeling sick, for the good of the community, please stay home

That said, our market will remain open to provide the community with critical access to food during this trying time.

Now more than ever, we believe that local produce, pastured-eggs and grass-fed meat is the best food for human health. Now more than ever, we see local, agricultural supply chains as essential to regional food security. And critically, now more than ever, every dollar you spend is a vote cast for the food system you want to see in the future. As you’re stocking up, please think of our hardworking family farmers who, now more than ever, need your support. Your purchases will help them keep farming on their land.

Westwood Village Farmers’ Market Time and Location:

Thursdays: 12pm-5pm
