BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A farmers markets in Boston is staying open during the coronavirus pandemic as many residents try to stay safe while buying groceries
The Boston Public Market is experimenting with a modified way of getting fresh produce to the public.
"Farmers markets do run here, but they tend to run in the late spring and summer months. So, obviously the climate is a little bit of challenge. We'll have heat lamps which will make it a little bit easier," Cheryl Cronin, the CEO of the Boston Public Market, said.
Boston Public Market set up tents six feet apart to keep vendors safe, as well as tables to keep customers at a safe distance.
"We're going to be managing that and make sure there's a lot of social distancing practice by our customers here," Cronin said.
Boston Public market is also offering delivery service. They are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11-3 p.m. and on Sunday from 10-6 p.m.
