With the CDC recommendation to use a non-medical cloth face covering as an additional public health measure during these times, we have made and distributed over 1,500 handmade masks to our community since the end of March 2020. These masks were made available each week at the Mankato Farmers’ Market throughout the 2020 season. We are grateful that we were able offer these at no charge to anyone who requested them thanks to the generous donations from our customers of fabric and money to help offset the cost of supplies.
We have a limited number of masks available again for the 2021 season. This season they are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis on a sliding scale of $0-$10 with a suggested donation of $5 per mask to cover the cost of materials. All masks are three layers (two layers cotton fabric and one layer interfacing) with adjustable elastic ear loops. Prints available will vary by week.
