ALLEGANY, NY — As reaction to the Coronavirus outbreak continues to diminish supplies at local grocery stores, customers in the Greater Olean area still have an opportunity to get fresh vegetables.
Canticle Farm Market, located at 3809 Old State Road, had a busy start to the day on Tuesday, as customers lined up at the market.
To accommodate for the virus' outbreak, the market is offering a curbside pickup option to its customers, as well as limiting the market's indoor capacity to eight patrons at a time.
Sister Melissa Scholl, president of Canticle Farm, said that as of 2 p.m., the market had already completed five curbside pickup orders and had a steady flow of customers in the market since opening at noon.
"We didn't know whether people would stay home or come out," Scholl said. "Basically, they're still buying a week's worth of produce."
The market will remain open until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, its normal business hours.
"People have been very patient and very kind, and we've done well today," Scholl said. "We're beginning to adjust to the changing conditions that we find ourselves in, and we will continue to do so as needed. "
