Scroll down for all the answers on how to make your shopping experience more safe and efficient. Have any questions that we haven't addressed? Contact us and let us know.
Do I Need a Mask? Everyone who enters the market is REQUIRED to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose. No exceptions. It's important that we all do our part to keep the vendors and our fellow shoppers safe.
DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT, DEBIT, AND EBT? All of the above. You can swipe your credit, debit, or SNAP/EBT card at the Information Tent for market tokens. Many vendors accept credit cards directly, and several are accepting cash. Each vendor has their own systems in place.
What Is The Market Capacity? We're only allowing 45 customers in at a time. In order to keep the market at this safe number, we ask that everyone makes sure to come and go through the main entrance (by the church, near Haywood Rd, here's a map). If you see neon flagging tape do not cross that boundary.
When Should I Come? The market starts at 3:30, so there's no need to come before then. We've been busiest in the beginning so if you want to avoid crowds come later. You can make sure you'll still get everything you want to buy if you arrange pre-orders with your favorite vendors.
How Does Pre-Ordering Work? It's pretty simple. You reach out to the vendors and tell them what you want to buy. Then arrange the payment and pick up with them individually. Here's a list of participating vendors.
Are There Bathrooms? Where Can I Wash My Hands? There are no bathrooms at the market. But we have a handwashing station near the entrance. We also have hand sanitizer near the entrance and at the market's Information Tent.
How Can People Help? If you have the means, you can consider donating to the market. Since our capacity was cut in half the market isn't making enough money through vendor fees to cover its costs. We also typically raise funds through community events and sponsorships. Both of those revenue streams are closed for the time being. If a financial donation isn't possible right now, a "thank you" goes a long way!
