VFMA Covid19 Risk Management Processes
We're working hard to make sure that our accredited Victorian farmers' markets can continue to trade, and that people can continue to buy food from farmers. We continue to review and adapt our risk management guidelines and share them with our members and State Government. A summary of these guidelines may be seen on our CovidSafe Markets
page. A copy of our risk management guidelines may be requested via email
Earlier this year Minister for Agriculture, Jaclyn Symes lent her valuable support so that "farmers markets could continue to operate, to ensure Victorians have access to the fantastic fresh produce our farmers work tirelessly to provide."
Accredited Victorian farmers' markets are more than simply places to exchange goods for money, and we are committed to seeing them continue, embrace these challenges, and evolve post-Covid19.
The use of face masks outdoors is required if you are unable to stay further than 1.5 metres away from people you don’t live with, such as at outdoor markets.
