MONTPELIER — It looks like the Capital City Farmers Market is moving again. 

Effective September 12, and for the remainder of the season, the market will be held at the 133 State Street parking lot, according to Market Manager Keri Ryan. This building houses the Vermont Department of Taxes.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this summer’s market was conducted in a different manner from previous years, where crowds of people moved freely from vendor to vendor, lining up closely, and huddling around offerings.

But this year, people are expected to practice social distancing and wear masks at all times. The market opened May 2 at 2 Taylor Street across from the Montpelier multi-modal transportation hub.

The market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.All questions about our Market and this summer’s operations, kindly send an email to us at manager@montpelierfarmersmarket.com.
