Due to the ongoing pandemic, crafters and artisans are no longer permitted to sell their products at ANY farmer's markets in BC. Furthermore, while online sales of items are still permitted, the powers-that-be have stated they are NOT allowed to be picked up at the market.
Since we're ALSO not supposed to have people over at our homes at this time, this effectively shuts down crafters' and artisans' small businesses.
These public health orders were put into place in the weeks leading up to Christmas, a time many vendors rely on to carry themselves through the slow spring season. I just want to ensure the public is aware of how these public health orders are affecting local small businesses.
Also, since I do not consider my workshop to be part of my primary dwelling, I will continue to invite clients over to pick up their items.
