Many of the precautions recommended by the CDC to reduce transmission of the coronavirus COVID-19 are things our vendors are well versed in. Safe food handling is an important practice required by all the Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market vendors. Things like staying home when you’re sick, rigorous hand washing, wearing masks and gloves to mitigate spreading germs, and so on are all things our expert vendors have practiced until they are second nature. All the Market vendors are required to abide by all food safety laws and regulations. Our vendors are taking extreme food safety precautions, and MAMSFM has increased sanitation stations at the market to include a controlled safe, healthy and sanitized environment for our community.
