COVID-19 and the Pelham Farmers Market

The Pelham Farmers Market Executive has worked closely with the Town of Pelham and

Public Health to develop a plan to safely re-open the Pelham Farmers Market. The information below outlines the COVID-19 requirements and safety actions for customers include:

  • Admittance of a total of 11 patrons at any given time, one per vendor
  • At any time, entrance to the Farmers Market will be paused if congestion occurs.
  • Requiring of customers to sanitize their hands before entry
  • All customers and vendors must wear a face covering
  • No handling or sampling of food will be permitted
  • Maintaining a safe physical separation of two metres from other shoppers, including in the entry line
  • Distancing and traffic-flow lines will be clearly marked out at the market

Vendors will also face a host of new 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
  • Prepackaging of products when possible
  • 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.
