Saturday Market Safety Guide
Updated August 24th, 2021
Safety is our highest priority. As of August 27th, 2021 the state of Oregon requires masks in public outdoor settings regardless of vaccination status. This mandate applies to everyone over 5 years of age.
We ask that customers, not of the same household, maintain a 6 foot distance from each other at all times while shopping at Saturday Market. This includes while selecting products and waiting in line. Please read this entire document for all the information on how we all can help keep each other safe while we support our local artists and small businesses.
Saturday Market has been providing a space for artists and small business owners to connect with consumers for over 50 years. We are primarily a retail space. We are returning to our 50% capacity map at this time. We are also canceling live music and offering take out only from our Food Court.
What We Are Doing to Keep You Safe
• Our members’ booths will be spaced 8 feet apart from each other and we have expanded the size of the sidewalk to make it easier for shoppers to stay at least 6 feet from each other
.• No samples will be offered.
• Members will adhere to Center for Disease Control (CDC) protocols.
• High-touch areas will be frequently sanitized.
• Handwashing stations that are foot activated will be provided.
• Neither members, nor their staff, will come to the Saturday Market if they are ill.
• We have reminder signs posted to stay 6’ apart and to wear face masks.
• No public tables or seating will be provided.
• No music, strolling members or busking will be allowed.
• All food from the Food Court will be offered as take out only.
*Cash and credit cards are accepted. Credit/debit card use is preferred over cash when possible. We will continue to process credit/debit card transactions at our Info Booth.
Please Help Us Keep Everyone Healthy
• Maintain at least 6 feet between yourself and other people.
