HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — It's that time of year! Oakwood Farmer's Market kicked off its first Friday of the season.

The outdoor event includes an array of vendors from food, and baked goods to face masks and candles.

You can catch the farmer's market every Friday from noon - 4 p.m. at the Oakwood Farms Market store.

The season will run from now through the second Friday of November.

Coordinators say they're glad to be back. "We're definitely happy to come to this point. We were cut short a little bit last year due to the pandemic, but we're glad we're here and we're starting on time," says Oakwood Farms & Market General Manager, Bryan Landers.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a plethora of information on how to protect yourself and other from the coronavirus.  

The virus can easily spread from person to person, so the CDC recommends you stay at least 6-feet apart from people not in your household. The virus is spread through respiratory droplets that are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, breaths or talks, according to the CDC. Because of this, the CDC recommends you wear a cloth facemask when around others and in public. 

Additionally, the CDC recommends that you frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

Symptoms to look out for include fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, a sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting and diarrhea, according to the CDC.
