GUIDELINES FOR OUR IN-PERSON CARIBBEAN FOOD MARKET

We are excited to celebrate Caribbean culture in person, with our market.  The safety of our vendors and customers is important to us.  To keep everyone safe, we will be implementing some new measures at the market.   Face masks will be required of all vendors.  Visitors will be encouraged to wear a mask - please bring with you if you have.  We will be monitoring the attendance and ensuring there is not overcrowding and social distancing is being practiced.  Vendors will be spaced apart to allow for 6' between.  Traffic aisles will be wide enough to help maintain distance.  Hand sanitizers will be at entrance.  Please be patient with all of these  practices.  We are all in this together, and together we can stay safe.
