Covid & Safety Policies
As we return to our outdoor in person events this fall, we thought it might be helpful to put all of our covid-related policies on one page.
Are face masks required?
Masks are not required at the upcoming Markets in Collingswood, Bryn Mawr, or Kennett Square but they are recommended, especially if you are not vaccinated or are not able to be vaccinated OR if you can't socially distance. Masks should cover your nose and mouth, and mask requirements apply to those 2 and older per CDC guidance. Thank you kindly for your assistance!
We will continue to monitor any guidance or mandates which may change the masking guidance from "recommended" to "required".
Will you have hand sanitizer available?
We will have hand sanitizer available at our information booth, in the portable restrooms, and vendors have been requested to have sanitizer available at their tents. You may wish to bring your own as well.
Will vendors have contactless payment options?
Yes, we have encouraged all of our vendors to offer contactless payment options such as QR Codes (or minimal contact options like card readers that don't require signatures, etc.). Most if not all of our vendors accept credit cards if you are uncomfortable handling cash.
Will I need to show proof of vaccination?
No we do not require proof of vaccination to enter the Market, and checking for proof in an open-air event with multiple entrances would be impossible. (We do wholeheartedly encourage everyone to get vaccinated if you have not already though!)
Will you have still food at the Market?
Yes, we still have our lineup of food trucks at the Market, and there are tables and chairs where you can sit and eat or you can take it to go. You, of course, do not need to be masked when you are eating.
Are you doing timed entry?
No given the layouts of our Markets (with multiple entry points in most), timed entry would be impossible to manage. Remember we are open from 10-4 pm, and you definitely do NOT need to get there right at 10 am.
Do you anticipate cancelling due to Covid-19?
We do not, but we will follow all state and local guidance if outdoor events are restricted or required to not operate. We are not anticipating that to happen, but any updates will be shared here, on our social media pages, and to our mailing list (you can sign up for that at the bottom of the page).
Is there anything else I need to know?
We just ask that you be courteous/patient if you see a tent or an area that's crowded. You may need to wait until things clear out (as folks may still be wishing to keep a little more distance from each other) and you can always swing back later.
We THANK YOU for supporting small businesses and for helping us to make this a safe event for everyone. After a challenging year and a half, and pivot after pivot, we are looking forward to being back in person and to being together with our community, even if masked.
