The Franklin Farmers Market at The Factory in Franklin (230 Franklin Road) will continue as planned today, Saturday from 9 a until 1 p.

Beginning today, there will be new protocols in place to ensure the safety of shoppers.

  • Maintain 6 ft away from others in line. The Market will remind shoppers of this verbally and with signage.
  • Do not touch the products for sale, let the vendors handle all the product, they will bag and wrap it and hand it to you.
  • As much as we would like to visit with each other, the Market asks that everyone shop and head home to minimize the time of potential exposure.
  • If you have children, please leave them at home if you are able in order to keep the number of people down and help expedite transactions.
  • The market as always had a no pet policy and they will continue to remind customers that dogs and other animals are not allowed at our market for the health and safety of our customers and vendors.
  • Consider using credit/debit cards instead of cash.
  • Wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. There are bathroom facilities in building #9 and hand sanitizers/wipes at the market.
