Hello DFM Shoppers,
This Saturday, 3/27, is the last winter market for the season! This means that Saturday, April 3, will be DFM’s kickoff to the full season. Starting on the 4/3 the market will be EVERY Saturday, 9am-noon, until November 20 (the weekend before Thanksgiving). During the full season we will welcome 36 vendors, new and returning sponsors, nonprofit vendors, and reintroduce community events and programs (later in the year).
Safety during the pandemic is still our number one priority! As Covid-19 cases decrease and more vaccines are received, we will slowly decrease our pandemic procedures when advised by state and local guidance. Please reference our newsletters and social media for up-to-date information regarding DFM guidelines.
Next week’s newsletter we will share the new market map, which will be our temporary map while construction continues through May. Once construction is complete, we will expand the market into the newly open space and have a beautiful new layout to accommodate vendors and shoppers.
We’re excited for the full season to start in a week and look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday!
