Drive-through produce

Landrum Farmers Market could open Saturday


LANDRUM—The City of Landrum is trying to allow its farmers market to open up this Saturday as a drive-through service.

Landrum City Council met Tuesday and although did not allow the public, streamed the meeting.

City officials are contacting farmers market representatives to see if a drive up approach is feasible for this Saturday.

“if an acceptable plan can be agreed upon prior to that date we will move forward as planned, otherwise we look to see an up and running market by the beginning of June,” City officials said.

In other closings, the Landrum Depot will remain closed until June 1. A new rental agreement will be in place when the depot opens with an added COVID-19 section that must be accepted by the renter prior to the event.

“These additions will meet the current guidelines for sanitation in efforts to help eliminate exposure of the virus where large groups are gathered,” city officials said.

Also on June 1, Brookwood Park will reopen. The walking trail is currently open, but the playground is closed.

On Saturday, June 6, the city’s Music at the Tracks series will kick off its first event.

Restaurants in Landrum are offering outside dining currently as well as pick up orders and some offering delivery. Downtown restaurants are offering dining along Main Street sidewalks until they can return to full capacity.
