Like other metro area farmers markets for the 2020 season, the Tosa Farmers Market is making changes to the layout and experience while introducing many new safety precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These guidelines follow instructions provided by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the City of Wauwatosa. We will present a stripped-down, streamlined version of the market to start the season -- more so an equivalent to a simple grocery store. While it may not be the Tosa Farmers Market you know and love, it's the one we need right now. Please continue to visit this website for updates as well as our Facebook and Instagram accounts for up-to-date information.

2020 Changes

At this time, we are canceling many special market programs: music, community group and sponsor booths, education events, and the PoP (Power of Produce) program. Yoga and the monthly Makers Market are back. Please note that Quest/EBT tokens will continue to be accepted at numerous booths and sanitized after every market.

1

Please send 1 healthy adult shopper per household. Do not bring kids if you have childcare available. (The kids POP program is currently on hold.)

2

Please be prepared to wait in line. We'll have one designated entrance/exit to the market and a maximum number of shoppers at a time. The line will form next to the Little Red Store.

3

We encourage everyone to wear a face mask or cloth face covering to help protect our vendors and other shoppers, and it is mandatory for our vendors, market staff and volunteers.

4

Please follow the marked one-way walking traffic route and signs for physical distancing. (Booths will be placed 10 feet apart.)

5

Please consider pre-ordering for quick pickup. We'll let you know which vendors offer pre-order (and pre-payment)!

6

Please tell farmers what produce you would like to purchase and only touch items after payment. (Or only touch items you know you want.)

7

Please enjoy tasty local foods in a nearby park or at home. There will be no seating or eating on-site this year.

8

Please come at your usual time to help with traffic flow -- no need to show up at 8 a.m.!

9

Please don't lallygag or linger. Efficient shopping puts more money in the pockets of farmers and food producers.

  • Hand-sanitizing stations will be positioned throughout the market.

  • A maximum of 150 people will be allowed in the market at one time. Market board members and volunteers will help control shopper numbers.

  • Customers can bring reusable bags but we ask only they handle the bags, not vendors.

WHY DO PEOPLE LOVE THE TOSA FARMERS MARKET?

“There’s always something new to see or music to hear. You’re right in the heart of the village so you’re within walking distance to go explore. Fun Saturday activity for families!”
