Two new sites in Annecy to sell local products

After the closure of the main markets of Annecy by decision of the prefect of Haute-Savoie, the regulars like the producers were without solutions. The city of Annecy has authorized two new places to sell local products under strict conditions of sanitary security.

Two new sites selling local products open on Wednesday

After the Vaugelas school that organized a place to sell local products on Friday, it is two new sites, one at theone at the Pommaries school in Annecy-le-Vieux, the other at the Champ Fleuri parking lot in Seynod which will open tomorrow from 8 am to 1 pm. This approach, initiated by the city of Annecy, has two objectives. First of all to support the local producers who have great difficulties to sell their production because of the closure by the prefect of the big food markets of Annecy (market of the old city, market of the boulevard Taine, Pommaries, Chorus and Champ Fleuri).

It&#8217s often a matter of survival of their business.

Secondly, the city wishes to provide a proximity solution for people who want to buy fresh products not too far from their home. This includes the elderly shopping on foot.

Provisions to ensure health security

As for the first site of sale of the Vaugelas school, the city puts in place strict provisions for the operation of these sites :

  • A open air space but completely enclosed.
  • A pathway organized with a direction of circulation to avoid crossing each other.
  • A controlled access and regulated by the Municipal Police in order to have a restricted flow of customers
  • From widely spaced benches from one stand to another to allow queues materialized on the ground.
  • A wide opening amplitude of 8:00 am to 1:00 pm to spread out the visits of the customers.

Moreover, in terms of sustainable development, these initiatives allow to promote short circuits by reducing the distances for the transport of goods. This contributes to the fight against global warming.

For a good diet, it is advisable to eat fresh fruit and vegetables every day.
