The market has a plan in place to make shopping safe for customers, vendors, staff, and volunteers. Here is what you need to know when you head out to the market on May 16.
The market layout will be modified, at least for a few weeks! It will look like the image below.
There will only be one way into and out of the market. This is a bit of an inconvenience, but it is the best way to keep people from being too close together.
You’ll have to wash your hands before you enter the market. We’ll have a handwashing station set up for this on the west side of the market. There will also be one on the east side of the market, so you can wash your hands when you leave.
Vendor booths will be farther apart, so there won’t be as many in the market. However, you can check out the customer information on the website and find out which vendors are signed up for May 16 or any other day at the market. It’s a cool new feature that we’re proud to offer, and we want you to use it and the directory of vendors to learn more about our producers, artisans, and bakers.
Although we normally encourage customers to visit the market building to grab a cup of coffee, check out market swag, use the bathroom, etc. we won’t be doing that until later in the season. There will not be any public restrooms at the market until further restrictions are lifted. As far as market swag, we’re still looking at options to bring that to you online.
You can learn more about market considerations and changes due to COVID-19 at the page below. We look forward to seeing you at the market opening on May 16th!
