The market's leaders said they are taking many precautions to make sure visitors to the market are safe, including spacing out the booths to ensure plenty of room for people to shop while practicing social distancing; mandating all vendors wear masks and sanitize their booths frequently; and setting up hand-washing stations on-site.
RAM organizers are also asking customers to follow the following guidelines:
- If you aren't feeling well, stay home.
- Face masks are strongly recommended.
- Practice social distancing by standing at least six feet away from other groups of people not with you, and not gathering in the market area.
- All items purchased are to be “taken away”; food purchased should be consumed off-site.
- When possible, pre-order meals from food trucks and make purchases with card rather than cash.
- Utilize provided hand-washing stations after purchases.
- Accept safety instructions from management personnel and makers.
There is no date yet for the return of Riverstage performances or yoga classes, RAM said in a release. Artists will be welcomed back to the market once it is approved by city leaders.
