The state of Wisconsin’s guidelines for coping with coronavirus concerns led the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce to call off its weekly farmers market for the summer of 2020.

The chamber made the announcement Monday (June 15):

It is with great disappointment that the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Farmer’s Market Managers announce that due to the social nature of the Farmer’s Market, the 2020 Algoma Sunday Market is canceled.

The decision was based upon the guidelines set forth by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and the Department of Health Services to help ensure the safety of both customers and vendors.

We understand fully the disappointment this causes our community and vendors. Please visit the Algoma Sunday Farmers Market Facebook page where we will regularly feature our local vendors and their products. The Algoma Chamber and Farmer’s Market Managers will continually monitor the COVID situation and if it is possible to open later in the season, a determination will be made at that time.
