Canberra’s Capital Region Farmers Market will be CLOSED this coming Saturday 21st August 2021.
The Rotary Club of Hall, which runs the Market, confirmed today that the Market will not operate this weekend.
The decision is based on the increased numbers of community transmission of Covid-19 in the ACT announced over the past two days, along with increased Covid-19 restrictions in both NSW and the ACT affecting farmers, producers and their transport of goods.
Safety is the Market’s number one priority, and the Market wishes to ensure the ongoing safety of the Canberra community, stallholders and volunteers to help reduce the risk of transmission. This also supports the ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr’s message for Canberrans to stay at home.
The Market would like to thank shoppers for supporting stallholders during this difficult time. If locals are keen to still support their favourite stallholder, they are encouraged to keep an eye out on the Market’s social media for stallholder notices on how they may be able to access home delivery or special offers. They can also check directly on stallholder profile pages on the Capital Region Farmers Market website, as well as stallholders’ social media channels.
The Market will reassess the situation early next week with regards to resuming on the following Saturday 28th August. For more information visit www.capitalregionfarmersmarket.com.au
