Inclement Weather Policy

Recognizing that it is the mission of Bedford Farmers Market to provide a venue for farmers/growers and producers to sell their products, it is also our responsibility to ensure a safe and orderly market environment for vendors and the visitors and shoppers.

The Bedford Farmers Market are open rain or shine. However, certain weather conditions (high winds, severe cold, severe thunderstorm, tornado watches/warnings, etc.) may necessitate the official closure of the market (with or without prior notice) if it is determined that severe weather conditions could compromise the safety of vendors and shoppers. This closure will be at the Market Manager’s discretion with consultation from NOAA (National Weather Service), and the Bedford Farmers Market Board Members.

The Market Manager and Bedford Farmers Market management may make decisions to alter market times based on weather reports and on site market conditions. It is the authority of Market Manager and Bedford Farmers Market’ management to close a market early or open a market late due to severe or inclement weather.

All vendors and shoppers will be notified as far in advance as possible that the Market has been“officially closed due to weather conditions.”  If time allows, notices will be posted first on the BFM FaceBook page, then to the web page and email messaging.

If a market is cancelled due to severe weather, farmers/growers and producers will be notified in a timely manner by email and telephone.

Neither Lambertville United Methodist Church or the Bedford Farmers Market will not be responsible for any injury or loss of property when the Market is officially closed due to weather conditions.
