August 8th – Returning to 100 North Harrison Street
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Easton Drive-Thru Farmers Market since April. Easton earned national acclaim for its quick and creative thinking in reinventing the market to reflect the challenges faced by COVID 19.
While the FAA moved quickly to approve the Avalon Foundation’s use of the old Black & Decker parking lot to create a drive-thru market, now a long-planned construction project on the site means that it is time for the market to safely return to downtown Easton.
Effective August 8, the market will occupy both the parking lot on Harrison Street (its original location) and the other side of the lot that connects to Washington Street. This allows the market to promote appropriate social distancing without losing vendors.
The Easton Farmers Market will operate under a public assembly permit from the Town of Easton and Talbot County government, meaning that either entity could close the market if vendors or customers fail to follow public safety rules. For this reason, it is the responsibility of everyone to both follow the rules AND call out/refuse service to customers who fail to do so. Please help keep this market alive and as safe as possible.
Masks that cover both noses and mouths will be required of everyone at the market – vendors and shoppers alike. The new market layout will be such that every other space in the lot(s) will be utilized. Patrons should enter and exit the market through the roads and never cut between vendors. All produce and products will be displayed behind the vendor’s sales tables. Customers will not have direct access to product to keep multiple hands from touching the produce or products. Customers will be served one at a time keeping appropriate social distance from one another.
Pre-ordering and prepaying whenever possible is still encouraged, as is the frequent use of hand sanitizer between transactions.
Please do not come to the market if you are feeling sick or have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID 19.
Be patient, respectful and courteous especially as everyone is navigating this change back to downtown Easton. Consider using time before or after your trip to the market to visit local downtown shops, restaurants and merchants who all need your support more than ever.

As one of the earliest settled areas of the United States, the Delmarva Peninsula – including Talbot County and the town of Easton – has a long and proud history of self-sustainment. The rich farmland and extensive waterways have sustained our economy and provided a way of life for generations of Eastern Shore residents. In addition, modern consumers are showing an increasing demand for more locally-grown, farm to table food goods.
The mission of the Easton Farmers Market is to provide a marketplace for farmers and vendors to sustain their local operations, while at the same time offering consumers a venue that fills their whole plate with local produce. From local produce growers to watermen and seafood distributors, from bakers to ranchers and local artisans, the Easton Farmers Market provides an entire meal and home decor in a friendly and festive environment.
The market is the work of The Avalon Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a strong community on the Eastern Shore by creating accessible, uplifting arts, education, and cultural experiences that appeal to the interests of a diverse population and to ensure the long term viability of the historic Avalon Theatre.
