Since the beginning of the pandemic, farmers markets and other small businesses have had to adapt to evolving changes in order to stay afloat. Many have turned to selling their products and services online. The Olympia Farmers Market recently joined their ranks with the launch of their online market on July 1.
Bryce Dazell, the Market’s operations manager, said the idea had been floating around for a while but statewide social distancing regulations jump-started the process.
“We really think the benefit will far outlive COVID-19,” Dazell said in a release.
During the pilot phase, there are close to 10 participating vendors but they hope to incorporate all established vendors and crafters soon. Orders which are placed before midnight every Sunday night and paid for with a credit or debit card, are then picked up the following Wednesday. Simply park and check-in with staff on arrival.
