What you can expect when you visit the Market 

The Pelham Farmers Market Executive has worked closely with the Town of Pelham and Public Health to open the Pelham Farmers Market for 2021. Patrons to the Market can expect the following from their visit:

  • Admittance of a total of 13 patrons at any given time, one per vendor
  • At any time, entrance to the Farmers Market will be paused if congestion occurs
  • All customers are strongly encouraged to wear a face-covering at all times in a manner that covers their mouth, nose, and chin, unless they are entitled exceptions
  • Access to sanitize their hands before entry to the Market
  • No handling or sampling of food will be permitted, no onsite consumption
  • Maintain a safe physical separation of two metres from other shoppers while in line and in the market area
  • Follow the traffic-flow directions clearly marked out at the Market
  • Exit the shopping area when completed

Vendors will also face a host of restrictions and protocols to help limit the spread of COVID-19, including:

  • Mandatory use of face coverings
  • Preferred use of electronic payments, cash payments will require a second individual whose sole duty will be handling of cash. Note that not all vendors are able to do electronic transactions. ATM's are closely located within a short walking distance on Pelham St.
  • Maintaining a two-metre separation with patrons and fellow vendors who do not reside in their household
  • Hand washing / sanitization after every transaction
  • Frequent sanitization of surfaces
  • Self-assessment for COVID-19 exposure and symptoms

Market patrons will be directed on a set path through the market to ensure physical distancing can be maintained. Niagara Region Public Health requires one way traffic flow of the Market and one entrance / exit. The Market unfortunately will not be a place of social engagement. Vendors and patrons must limit conversations to a polite minimum.
