Farmers Markets are considered essential businesses. However, to ensure the safety of our customers, volunteers and vendors we have put together new safety guidelines based off guidance from NYS Ag and Markets and the Farmers Market Federation of NY.
COVID-19 ROCK HILL FARMERS’ MARKET GUIDELINES
As part of these guidelines, we currently cannot have artisan vendors, live music, food demos, sampling and events at the market, according to NYS Ag and Markets.
VENDOR GUIDELINES: Vendor stands will be located 10ft apart when possible, will have a barrier of at least 6 ft between the customer and the vendor, regular sanitizing of their area, and vendors will wear a mask and gloves. No sampling of products. Vendors will help to serve you their products and will pre-package items when possible.
HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO AS SHOPPERS TO HELP PROTECT PUBLIC SAFETY:
Wear your mask!
Maintain a 6′ distance between yourself & others. To ensure social distancing, the market may limit the number of customers within the market at any given time (if necessary). If this is the case, a volunteer will direct customers to stand in an organized line in the parking lot (6ft apart)
Pre-order with your favorite vendor and shop as quickly as possible to allow others to enter the market. Pre-order producers will be listed on our website under the Vendor Page.
Consider shopping solo, without full household or children.
Consider creating a list and plan ahead. A map of our vendors is located on our website.
Do not self-serve products or walk into booths, ask the vendors staff to help you.
Be mindful of market signs.
Be mindful of cones, rope guides and designated entrance/exit points.
Thoroughly wash your hands and all produce on returning home, discard outer bags and cartons.
Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer, available at the market stages.
If you are sick, please stay home!
Be patient and kind – we’re all in this together!
