Farmers Markets

Farmers markets play a crucial role in providing fresh food to District residents. The District seeks to support farmers markets during the COVID-19 emergency, while also ensuring that customers are able to practice proper social distancing and minimize trips and time outside the home. Under Phase Two of Reopening, farmers markets can continue operating with approved waivers from the Office of Planning.

Farmers Market Waiver Process

In accordance with Mayor’s Order 2020-058 and Mayor’s Order 2020-067, the District Government will only allow farmers markets to operate if operators submit and get approved a COVID-19 waiver request to operate during the COVID-19 public health emergency .In Phase One and Phase Two of reopening, farmers market waivers were extended for the rest of the farmers market season. Farmers markets have to reapply for a waiver for the 2021 farmers market season. If you are a new farmers market, please email [email protected].

Farmers markets are defined as markets with at least one farmer selling their fresh produce. Other markets, such as craft markets or flea markets, that do not fit this definition but would like to operate should request a waiver from the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA); you can access the waiver here.

If a market operator needs assistance meeting the District’s requirements, including with permitting, water hookup, or other operational issues, please contact [email protected].
