Farmers markets are a sure sign of spring in the Hudson Valley and one popular market will be back this weekend with some special guidelines because of the coronavirus.
They Nyack Farmers Market is very popular in the region, and it's coming back today on a modified basis.
As the ‘farm to table’ movement has grown, many of the chefs from restaurants in the area shop at these markets every week for produce to incorporate into their menus. And of course that's great for local farmers and farmers across the country who are having an awful time during the pandemic.

The market will open with a lot of changes for shoppers and vendors.
Shoppers and vendors have to wear masks at all times, vendors also have to wear gloves, and shoppers can't touch any merchandise.  
They are limiting the number of people that can be in the market at one time so be prepared to stand on line. They want you to move through as quickly as you can, and they would rather you use credit or debit rather than cash. They're also suggesting preordering if you know what you want.
Today is sort of a dry run to see how it goes. Market officials say this is the first step toward a full reopening in the future.
The market will be open today from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
