MARQUETTE, MI: Ordering starts Sunday, November 1 at noon, for the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market (DMFM) Late Fall Online Marketplace. The Late Fall Market will run November 7-December 19, 2020. This Saturday, October 31, is the last outdoor, in-person market for the season.
“We’ve had a great run thus far, and are very grateful for the support this community has shown the market this season. We are looking forward to continuing the market with our Online Marketplace,” said Sara Johnson, Market Manger for the DMFM.
Currently, the Online Marketplace has thirty producers offering seasonal produce, baked goods, art, hand crafted goods and body products for sale. Customers are encouraged to preview producers, browse products, and create a market account at www.mqtfarmersmarket.com.
SNAP and Double Up Food Bucks food assistance programs will continue to be accepted. Customers who use these benefits will be able to place pre-orders online and pay in person at pick-up with their benefits. More information about accepted food assistance programs and how to utilize them is available on the DMFM website.
Ordering on the Online Marketplace is easy, but does require pre-planning. Every week customers will be able to place their order starting at noon on Sunday and ending at midnight on Wednesday. Customers will then pick up their orders at the Marquette Commons, on Saturday during their assigned pick up window. Credit card payment is required when placing orders. It is important to note, customers’ credit cards will not be charged until Saturday morning. There is a $15 order minimum and a $5 distribution fee. These parameters help keep the market running and fund supplies necessary to fulfill orders. Customers who use food assistance are exempt from these parameters as it is illegal to use food assistance funds for anything other than food.
