Why is there a line? What if I can’t stand for long periods of time?

We created the queuing line when redeveloping our COVID-19 site plan to ensure we could safely control how people were moving inside of the farmers market. It isn’t so much about the number of people that are inside of the market but more so about crowd control and line management. When you’re standing in line, you can see how some farm stands can get lines of 5+ people waiting. At that point, we hold the line so that we can let lines die down before adding to to them. We want to ensure that crowds aren’t forming and people can socially distance easily while walking around the market.

We have 2 alternative entrances available for anyone who may have difficulty standing in line.

  1. @ the corner of Gross St. + Liberty Ave. (look for the sign near the orange bike rack)
  2. @ the corner of S Winebiddle + Liberty Ave.

Are dogs allowed?

Pets are allowed. Please be mindful of where your dog is. Don’t let them go to the bathroom near vendor spaces or in the market.

Will _____ be at the market?
