Farmer’s Markets are considered an essential service during the B.C. state of emergency

Farmers’ markets are considered an essential service under the BC state of emergency and are expected to comply with hygienic practices and physical distancing to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. These recommendations include limiting the number of people present in an area, practicing safe physical distancing, providing hand-washing facilities, and increasing cleaning and disinfection.

The Bella Coola Farmer’s Market is open every Sunday from 10am – 1pm. Those interested in hosting a table can contact Diane Tuck at 250 799 5681.
