SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Hub City Farmers’ Market announced it will be offering market vouchers to those who have been impacted by the governor’s executive order.
Governor Henry McMaster issued an executive order Tuesday, ordering all restaurants and bars to close dine-in services.
HCFM said it does not want anyone to worry about how they will feed their family. To help, it will be offering $10 market vouchers for workers in the hospitality, food or beverage industries.
Those impacted will need to show a proof of employment to receive the voucher, according to HCFM. Officials said this could include a paycheck stub, a name tag or whatever else you might have. For more information on about the proof of employment, email Heather at email@example.com.
HCFM will be holding its Winter Market Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Northside Harvest Park, located at 498 Howard Street in Spartanburg.
Officials would like to remind everyone to wash their hands and practice social distancing while attending the market.
They also asked for people to refrain from touching anything at the vendors’ booths. HCFM said vendors will be wearing gloves and following guidelines set by the CDC and the Farmers’ Market Coalition.
Farmers’ markets, like grocery stores, are classified as essential businesses. To help keep the market safe and healthy, HCFM has asked for anyone who is sick not to attend.
HCFM will also be offering live virtual activities for kids around noon everyday on Facebook, while the kids are home from school.
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, there will be story-time book readings. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, there will be virtual learning activities.
