Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I find the market and where should I park?
See our Directions & Parking page for more info.
It’s raining. Is the market still on?
Yes! Barring extreme weather conditions, the market will go on, rain or shine.
Do I need to wear a mask at Easton Farmers’ Market?
The Pennsylvania Department of Health no longer requires masks for indoor or outdoor settings. We ask that you maintain a distance of 6 feet when possible, and continue to follow CDC guidance regarding COVID-19 prevention.
What forms of payment are accepted?
All vendors accept cash. Acceptance of credit card and mobile payment varies by vendor.
SNAP users who are Pennsylvania or New Jersey residents can visit our Red EBT Tent to use their EBT card at the market.
Is all of the produce available at the market organic?
No. While much of the produce is organic, not every vendor is certified organic by the USDA. Some are instead Certified Naturally Grown, some are chemical free, and others use Integrated Pest Management. Refer to specific vendors for more information on their growing practices and certifications.
What do these terms mean?
Certified Organic refers to growers who are certified by the USDA or corresponding state Departments of Agriculture. These growers do not use synthetic pesticides in their growing practices, although they may use natural pesticides.
Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) is a non-profit organization that certifies farmers with organic growing practices. They are an alternative to USDA certification, created by farmers to streamline the process and keep certification dues as affordable as possible.
Chemical free also means that a grower does not use synthetic pesticides. Some vendors use organic standards or better, but do not have certification.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to growing that uses a number of methods to prevent pests, which may include synthetic pesticides. Growers that practice IPM use these other methods to reduce the use of synthetic pesticides as much as possible.
How do I know what’s in season?
See our Guide to Local Food chart for more info.
What does “producer-only” mean?
EFM holds a strict producer-only policy with few exceptions. Producer-only markets require vendors to sell only what they themselves have produced, preventing vendors from selling wholesale products. This reflects our mission to provide fresh, high quality, local produce and food products directly from regional farms and businesses to the consumer, and to offer artists and crafters an outlet for sale of their handmade products.
Can I bring my dog to Easton Farmers’ Market?
Yes! We happily welcome furry friends, provided that their owners comply with all pertinent statues laid out by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the City of Easton.
