This Week — October 18, 2020

It’s pumpkin time! This week at Brighton Farmers’ Market you’ll find an amazing selection of pumpkins, different sizes, shapes, even colors — perfect for pies, stews, jack-o-lanterns! Please join us this Sunday, 9 am to 1 pm, 1150 Winton Rd. S., Rochester.

Winter Plans

Because of this crazy year and the need to keep our market safe, we’ve changed our winter market plans. This year our regular season extends through November 22. The following week we will switch to our winter schedule — from November 29 through December 20 we will remain outside at Brighton High School but with reduced hours of 10 to 11:30 am. We will close during January and February and will post plans for re-opening in 2021 on Facebook, Instagram, and through this newsletter when plans have been finalized. We will not be holding an indoor market at Brookside as of now. 

A reminder about our safety guidelines:

  • The first hour, 9-10, is reserved for seniors, vulnerable individuals, and those who have pre-ordered.
  • Please send one person per family when possible, and leave quickly when done.
  • Please leave dogs at home.
  • Masks are required.
  • Please remember to keep distance from others.
