Update - March 21, 2022.

In accordance with government of Ontario policy, starting March 21 staff and customers will no longer be required to wear a mask at Indoor Farmer. Staff may choose to continue wearing a mask if they feel more comfortable doing so. For the foreseeable future, we will keep masks on hand and can wear one on request by a customer. If you are high risk or prefer to interact with a staff member wearing a mask, you may ask them to wear one while assisting you, and staff have been instructed to honour the request.
