Co-Producing Safe Farmers Markets During COVID-19

In Wisconsin, for example, the state’s Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection produced an eight-point list of rules that farmers markets must follow during the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services produced a four-point list—which has since disappeared from the internet—that contradicted the eight-point list. Between May 1 and mid-June, however, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Extension reconciled the two lists with a third set of instructions.
