Boston-area farmers markets are back for 2020. This year, open-air markets are reopening with new guidelines in place to protect shoppers & vendors from the spread of COVID-19. Booths will be more spaced out, hand sanitizing stations will be available, social distancing will be enforced, and masks will be required. That said, things won’t be too different from the way shopping at big grocery stores is now, except you’ll be shopping local and supporting small businesses.
