.Santa Cruz in Photos: Downtown Farmers’ Market Thrives

Flower vendors keep brilliant colors coming at the Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Market.

The market, which runs 1-5pm Wednesday on Cedar Street at Lincoln Street, has been entirely reconfigured to meet Covid-19 safety measures, says executive director Nesh Dhillon.

“The market is actually really doing well. The public should know we are practicing strict social distancing and mask wearing. We are the line cops,” Dhillon says, a reference to 6-foot distant lines drawn on the ground at each stand. Separation of duties, moderating queues and hand-washing stations are also featured.
