Important Reminders!

We want to remind remind you of three important things that we need you to do in order to keep everyone at the market safe.

Wear a Mask!
Masks are required in both indoor spaces and outdoor spaces when you cannot stay 6 feet apart, which includes our market. Mask wearing at the market is essential.

Avoid Shopping & Gathering in Groups
In order to help everyone maintain social distancing, we limit the number of people allowed in the market. The last few weeks at the market, we’ve had a line of people waiting to get in for the first two hours of the market. We ask that you shop alone if possible. This will help reduce the lines and will help keep everyone safe.

Enjoy Purchases Outside of the Market
We completely understand the temptation to eat those delicious blueberries or sip on a refreshing bubble tea while shopping the market. However, eating and drinking at the market means that you no longer have your mask on, which is a requirement. For the safety of our volunteers, vendors, and other shoppers, please wait until your are outside of the market to start enjoying your purchases.
