Be sure to…
⚈ Come prepared and limit your visit time. We ask that you come ready, shopping list in hand, so you can get in and get out quickly. Please treat the market as an essential activity, not as a social activity. And send only one family member if you can.
⚈ Wear a face mask/face covering. While not a requirement, it is highly suggested at the market.
⚈ Clean/Sanitize your hands. Please consider washing your hands before entering the market. We will have hand sanitizer at both entrances to the market, at First & B and First & D, and public hand washing at B Street parking lot next to the porta-potty.
⚈ Honor social distancing of six feet while at the market. Give space to those around you, at least 6 feet, while shopping and waiting in line.
⚈ Observe all posted signage and demarcated lines, which signal where customers should wait, six feet apart, while in line.
⚈ High risk groups should send another family/household member or neighbor to shop for them.
⚈ Always stay home if you are sick.
⚈ Visit booths with shorter lines first.
⚈ Always cough or sneeze into your arm or a tissue, away from people and food.
