About this Event

Bow Market‘s outdoor grocery store is back this Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10am - 3pm.

In order to maintain a safe and controlled environment, you must register to attend. Interested shoppers are required to pre-book a 30-minute visit, and will be required to wash their hands upon arrival. Queuing will begin in Bow Market’s driveway.

Local food vendors, appropriately spaced throughout the courtyard, will offer fresh fish, meat, produce, dairy, frozen items, and staples. Shopping will be entirely touchless: vendors will handle and bag all food. Cash will not be accepted.

Please note: the first hour of every day is reserved for seniors.

Your participation is helping chart a course forward for our local food community. Thank you!

*We hope to add more dates in the future, all contingent on developing COVID-19 regulations and restrictions.
