Guidelines in deciding whether to come to the Market:
- If it is raining, bring your umbrella and stroll between the raindrops. The Market will be open! Our vendors work rain or shine and so do we.
- If it is raining and the rain is accompanied by thunder and lightning, our first priority is to make sure everyone is safe. We will not open/reopen the Market until 30 minutes have passed lightning/thunder free.
- If you are planning your visit and severe weather is/may be in the forecast, make sure to check our Facebook page frequently. We will post any weather announcements there.
If you are in the Market when weather becomes an issue, please follow these guidelines:
- For the threat of lightning, people in the Market will be asked to move to shelter or directed to their vehicles until 30 minutes have passed lightning/thunder free.
- If more than 60 minutes have passed and the storm continues or the Market Manager can verify an extended storm cell’s presence exceeding the remaining open hours of the Market, the Market will be closed for the day.
Hopefully it will rarely happen that lightning or the risk of lightning will trigger temporary evacuation or cancellation of the Market. However these guidelines are for your protection and we thank you for your anticipated cooperation in the event a weather emergency arises.
