PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY AT THE MARKET
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the outdoor Market is not business as usual, but you can still find all your favourite farmers, prepared food vendors and artisans at the Market every Saturday.
Market staff and volunteers have been working hard to organize the outdoor market so that it maintains public health and safety while continuing to allow our community access to local food. The Farmers’ Market is an essential service.
Currently our dining area will be closed.
The Market has been working closely with Peterborough Public Health and Peterborough Square to make sure the Market is a safe place for customers to purchase local food. Many measures have been put in place:
Directional traffic flows.
Physical distancing between vendors and shoppers.
Stanchions for managing lineups.
Hand washing and sanitizing stations.
Personal protective equipment requirements for staff and vendors
Full details of our Covid-19 best practices at the Farmers’ Market can be found in our Covid-19 guidebook, here.
We understand this is an enormous change from business as usual at the Market, which is usually such a friendly, inviting and socializing place for our community. We need to remain diligent with these measures now so that we can return to all the fun and enjoyment the Market brings in the the near future. We appreciate everyone’s accommodation and resilience to our current reality and believe so strongly that as a community we can make it through this.
