This Week at DFM: May 22
Hello DFM Shoppers,
Courtney and I are excited to announce that DFM will be bringing back live music to DFM starting Saturday, June 12. We’ve missed having live music at the market and are eager to bring local musicians back to support them and add to the market’s ambiance. If you are a local musician and would like to perform at DFM, please email me here for more information and scheduling.
With the changes related to COVID-19 restrictions, DFM only recommends shoppers, volunteers, vendors, and staff to wear a mask if they have not been fully vaccinated and/or are not able to socially distance. DFM, despite being outside, can get congested at times with shoppers and for the safety of everyone we recommend wearing a mask when appropriate or where you feel comfortable doing so. This is a transitional moment for everyone, we’re all becoming familiar with the new recommendations and are adjusting – please have grace and respect for everyone as we continue during these challenging times.
This Saturday is looking like another beautiful market morning. Vendors continue to bring new and exciting products to the market and we’re starting to see early summer items arrive just in time for Memorial Day weekend!
Happy eating, Justin
