BE A HEALTH ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF, YOUR LOVED ONES, AND YOUR COMMUNITY.
Do you part to keep Arizona Farmers Markets safe and keep markets open as pivotal access points for farmers to sell fresh produce. In the interest of the continued health of our community, we strongly advise customers, vendors, and staff to follow these best practices according to public health guidelines:
- Do not attend the markets if you or someone in your household is sick.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially: after going to the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; before/during/after preparing food; after touching an animal or animal waste; after touching garbage.
- Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. This includes thoroughly washing produce before consumption and regularly washing your reusable produce bags.
