Bauman Covid-19 Response
Bauman’s Farm & Garden takes great pride in our commitment to do whatever is possible to be a source of food & groceries for the surrounding communities where we are located. As circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continue to evolve, we will take the appropriate actions to ensure the health and safety of our customers, employees, and the community in general. We ask that you please adhere to the directions below in order to facilitate a shopping flow with sufficient social distancing. Our store guidelines are always subject to the latest State & County guidelines & mandates in effect in Marion county.
Wearing of Masks is REQUIRED
Effective Wednesday, June 24th, 2020, customers shopping at Bauman’s Farm & Garden are REQUIRED to wear a face mask as per the directives issued by the Oregon Health Authority and Governor Brown. Bauman’s is located in Marion County. For more information and guidance on this requirement, click here.
As of Friday, February 26th, 2021, we will resume offering hard cider by the glass or flight. Masks must be properly worn when not actively eating or drinking inside the store. Thank you for your consideration and help in keeping everybody safe.
We offer call ahead and on-line shopping to accommodate customers who have a disability or medical condition and cannot wear masks. We will be happy to bring your purchases to your car in the parking lot.
Ins and Outs
We are limiting the entrances and exits to/from the store. The entrance door by the big red barn and the automatic sliding door under the breezeway are dedicated entrances into the store. The center doors are exit ONLY. While inside, we ask that you please socially distance with other customers and employees as well as when queuing for the check-out registers.
Capacity Limits Inside the Store
We may limit the number of customers at one time inside the store when necessary. Doing so will avoid overcrowding and allow for sufficient social distancing between customers as well with employees. We appreciate your patience with the customer shopping ahead of you or with the employee restocking.
4 Persons Per Household or Party Limit
Please limit yourself to four (4) persons total per household or party inside the store (Yes, kids count as persons). As the total customers allowed in the store may be limited to allow us to maintain the social distancing recommendations as well as provide access to more shoppers at a time in the store. There are no household/party size restrictions in the garden center. Thank you for your consideration.
Animal Barn & Kids Playgrounds
Starting Friday, February 26th, 2021, we will re-open the Animal Barn and only the NEW Kids Playground. Please be mindful to not overcrowd these venues and maintain social distancing. Mask wearing is REQUIRED for anyone 5 years or older as per State Guidelines.
Clean Hands & Masks
All customers, including children, shopping at Bauman’s are asked to sanitize their hands when they enter the store. We have convenient sanitizing stations when you enter the store or the garden center. Again, the proper wearing of a mask is MANDATORY consistent with State mandates!
Please keep the recommended 6ft radius distance from your fellow shoppers and store employees when inside the store as well as at the check-out lines and in the garden center.
A reminder that pets, including therapy, companion and emotional support animals, are not allowed inside the store as per Oregon law! Only service or assistance animals are permitted. Please visit our Pet Policy page for more information. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
