The coronavirus pandemic hasn't halted the Green River Farmers Market.

The market started last week and will continue each Wednesday from 4-7 p.m., through Sept. 9.

Jennie Melvin, the city's Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency administrator, said the market will observe social distancing recommendations and will offer hand sanitizer produced by a Wyoming company at the Main Street booth.

Overall, Melvin said she was happy with the first market's turnout, saying the attendance was similar to last year's peak attendance figures, attracting 300-400 people.

"People didn't seem to shy away because of the pandemic," she said.

She said 25 vendors were signed up for last week's market, Melvin said she expects to extend the market further down Roosevelt Drive as a few future vendors will need the additional space.

With vendors, she said they've generally been excited about visiting Green River because they haven't had many opportunities to sell their goods.
