The Downtown Summer San Rafael farmers market on Fourth Street will not be held this year "Due to the lingering effects of COVID-19," the city and the Agricultural Institute of Marin announced.

The Agricultural Institute of Marin operates two other year-round farmers markets that remain open.

A Thursday market is available from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 10 Avenue of the Flags in San Rafael.

A Sunday market is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 3501 Civic Center Drive in San Rafael.

Both markets have adopted social distancing and other measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
