Closing the Online Market

Thank you for your support of the Ames Main Street Farmers’ Online Market!

In April of this year, we made the decision to offer an online market in order to accommodate our customers and vendors, as well as to adhere to the State guidelines to limit large gatherings of people.

Now that the live Market is open, with safety protocols and social distancing measures in place for several weeks, we will be discontinuing the online market.

The last week for shopping the online market will be July 21-23 with pick up on July 25.

We appreciate the positive feedback the online market has generated and this is a difficult decision, but the organization cannot sustain both markets at the same time. We want to ensure everyone has the best experience possible when shopping with us and we wholeheartedly believe the in-person Market is safe and accessible for all.

Please understand this does not mean the online market is permanently closed. Should any regulations change, we will be happy to reconsider our options throughout the market season.

We understand any disappointment you may have and ask for your patience and understanding as we all work together to navigate these ever-changing times.
