We're all super excited for our Halloween event, and we're looking forward to having our community come visit! We also know that we'll have many first-time visitors. For their benefit, we're repeating things many of you already know. If you're a Market regular, go ahead and scroll down to the festivities and vendor list at the bottom of this page.
Please don't get us wrong. We don't enjoy rules and restrictions any more than you do, but we're we're really happy to be open to serve you and we want to make sure we can keep doing that. With that in mind, please note:
Face coverings must be worn properly in the Market (staff, vendors, and visitors alike)
Please observe social distancing (6 feet between you and anyone who's not with you)
No eating or drinking inside the Market
Do not touch products you haven't already purchased
No pets or live animals in the Market (service animals are welcome)
No smoking in the Market (yes, that includes vaping)
No open alcohol containers in the Market
If it makes it easier to remember, once you pass that wall of yellow signs and step into the Market, you need to wear your face covering. If you're going to eat or drink your Market goodies, just step out past those yellow signs. Otherwise you can expect someone wearing a lanyard like the ones in the photo to ask you to please step out of the Market or else put your face covering back on.
If you are approached by the Market Manager or a volunteer, please try not to take it personally. We're just doing what we have to in order to keep the Market open for all of us to enjoy. If you have any questions about any of this, please see the Market Manager. She wears a red-and-white polka-dotted lanyard, or just ask any vendor to point her out.
Market signs by Graphic Language. Please do not distribute or reproduce without permission.
And now for the fun stuff!
Wear a Costume, Win a Prize (Maybe)! Visitors in costume can enter the raffle for prizes from Market vendors! The price of entry is your photo, posted on our Market Facebook page. Get your photo taken at the Market Information booth, then put your name in for the drawing.
Trick-or-Treating: Kids in costume can trick-or-treat at booths marked with balloons. Come on. What's Halloween without trick-or-treating? Just look for the booths with orange balloons. That's where the treats are.
Vendor Costume Contest: We're going to need you to get all judgy for our Vendor Costume Contest. We'll post photos on Facebook and you can vote for your favorite. Or favorites. Or everybody. Whatever. We already have so many rules, do we really need more? Oh, all right. Here's the rule: we're only going to count "Loves" and "Likes." Let's not over-complicate this.
