There will be no mask requirements or social-distancing restrictions for this year's market, which will be held from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday through the summer in the parking lot between the Broadway Station Apartments and the Grove City Library off Broadway.

The Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce Farmers Market’s 2021 season began May 15 with organizers and vendors looking forward to a more normal year as COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease.

“It will be nice to be mostly worried about Mother Nature cooperating,” chamber executive director Shawn Conrad said.

That wasn’t a problem May 15.

“It was a beautiful day,” Conrad said. “We had about 850 visitors to the market, which is about double what we would normally see.

“I think part of it was the weather, but people were also just excited about having some kind of return to normal.”

About 20 vendors participated in the opening day market, and many were sold out before the morning was over, Conrad said.
