RHINELANDER - For the past quarter century, the Hodag Farmers' market opened the Saturday before Memorial Day. This year that tradition was broken.
However, the market is set to return this weekend, with some safety guidelines in place.
Booths will be placed farther apart, and people will be encouraged to practice social distancing. People will be asked not to touch produce before purchasing it.
Vendor and community liaison Jasmyn Schmidt said the market serves as a great way to get fresh, local, food.
"You know that food came from 20 miles away, you know it was only touched by that one family that grew it, and with our precautions no one else is touching it either," said Schmidt.
Schmidt says there are a wide variety of vendors that sell much more than just food.
The market will be open Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Pioneer Park in Rhinelander.
