Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing measures set in place, Farmers Market Council Bluffs has decided to delay our opening market to Thursday, June 11.
The FMCB committee and staff at The 712 Initiative are working diligently to make sure the market has a safe opening for the Council Bluffs community. The decision to delay comes from discussions with state and local governments, the Council Bluffs Police Department, Health Care Systems, and other local markets.
The 2020 season will run from June 11 until September 24 on Thursdays in Bayliss Park from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Supplemental activities at the market will be suspended until further notice due to social distancing practices. This includes the organized play space, wellness activities and live music. These activities are suspended due to their nature in encouraging gathering in place.
Upon opening, there are plans to structure and monitor patron traffic throughout the market. These plans will be explained in more detail closer to the opening market date.
We’d like to thank our patrons for the continued support of our market. This was not an easy decision to make but we must make the safety of our vendors and patrons top priority.
