Moving Indoors to Community Center 10/17
Our first indoor market, and another set of COVID guidelines to get used to. Here's the overview of what you can expect. Much the same as outdoors. All to keep you and our vendors safe.
- 6 foot distancing
- masks required (unless Dr's note)
- sign in with contact info
- one way traffic counter clockwise
- entrance as usual
- exit through patio doors near kitchen
- vendors select product for you
- sanitizer available at all vendors
We are going to have to figure this out as we go. Blue painters' tape will be used to identify social distancing, which we are planning to use to have a walk around pathway marked out as well as distance from vendors.
Here's who is moving indoors with us and when. The Tasty Empanada just notified us this morning that they will not be participating in the indoor market. Sorry for the late notice, but we just learned this.

SUSTAINABLE TIP OF THE WEEK
Two-thirds of UK consumers participating in a food waste reduction trial saved about $21.37 per week through actions such as meal planning, using leftovers, and freezing more food. Overall, households participating in the six-week Tesco experiment reduced waste by 76%, suggesting that each household could avoid tossing out over 167-lbs. of food per year by changing their habits, reported The Guardian.
