Lee Branch Farmers Market
The state of Alabama has deemed certified farmer’s markets as essential business during the COVID 19 shelter in place. Lee Branch Farmer’s Market will open as an order ahead, drive-thru and pick up market on May 2nd to serve the community.
Though we have all changed our routines in the midst of this world pandemic, the warm sun still shines, the crops still grow, and people still need good local food, and connections with each other. So on May 2nd , we’ll open again – in a socially distant format, of course, but, still excited to bring farmers and local food makers together to provide fresh, local produce and baked goods to the Lee Branch community. As a certified Alabama market, we have been deemed an essential business, and will be practicing a “no contact” order and pick up to serve you with an abundance of caution. (Just know, however, we can’t wait to be able to shake hands and hug again!) Following the guidelines set by the CDC, the state, and local health offices, we’ve rearranged the delivery model to embrace social distancing to protect both the community and the merchants. Beginning May 2 nd , we’ll open as a order ahead, drive-through and pick up market, with the same food and farmers you’ve come to love. To minimize contact, ALL orders must be preordered and prepaid.
