Note: This is our Stargazer Hollow blog; for official news from HFM please always check the official Hingham Farmers Market website here.
Starting this Saturday, August 15, the long-awaited return of a more typical walk-up Hingham Farmers Market will be back!
The market takes place every Saturday in the Station Street Lot at 95 Station Street, Hingham, MA from 9AM to 1PM rain or shine. See this article in the Hingham Anchor for more information on the overall market plan.
Social Distancing Precautions
Safety is of the utmost concern! Foot traffic will be one-way and capacity will be monitored to ensure appropriate distancing is possible. Masks are required, and vendors will be wearing masks and gloves.
Please keep in mind:
- To ensure that produce is not touched, we will have our produce display set back from the front of our tent
- I will be happy to show you the tomatoes and let you pick your favorite by pointing!
- We will continue selling as many items as possible by the “each” or by the “bag” instead of weighing out items
- Touchless card payments are preferred
- We take Square, and have both a card “tap” and a card “swipe” reader which will be regularly wiped down
Pre-Orders Are Still Available
We, as well as most other vendors, are continuing to support pre-orders which can be picked up directly at our booth — we will have your order pre-bagged and labeled and set safely aside for you.
Our pre-orders will be restocked every Sunday for the following week, and our pre-order site is: https://stargazerhollow.square.site/
At current time of printing, all vendor pre-order information can be found on the HFM site here.
SNAP is Available, with Matching Funds
With the return of the walk-up market comes the return of SNAP tokens! There will be a tent for SNAP up ahead of the entrance, which will allow exchange of SNAP funds for tokens which can be redeemed to vendors for food items.
