Market Events

IN ADHERANCE TO CDC COVID-19 GUIDELINES, the Market has eliminated, for the duration of social distancing, all non-essential areas and activities that attract lingering or close contact in the Market, such as music, seating/eating areas, special events and children’s activities, product sampling and cooking demonstrations.

Due to COVID-19, there are no special events scheduled for the 2020 Market season.

IF the health trends change the guidelines provided by the Governor’s Executive Orders, we will post events added to our Market schedule here.

This season we had created a special Market calendar reflecting various national holidays, awareness and recognition days.  Our plan had been to create special theme related events and activities during the Sunday Market hours (from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., May 17th-October 11th).

These Market activities would have included musical performances at the Spotted Goat canopy (with tables and chairs for those who want to relax and kick back), special vendors or exhibitors, and children’s activities.

For now, however, for the health and safety of all concerned, we will continue to post the holiday, awareness and recognition themes the Market has on schedule, but defer all related special events and activities.

When health restrictions are lifted, we will insert activities that are permitted by Market guidelines into the calendar.
