Dear Chevy Chase Community, we have received a waiver to operate on 02 May 2020
As you are aware, currently all farmers markets require a waiver to function. This waiver needs to be received on a weekly basis and we need your help in making sure that we continue operating.
*Volunteers to man our entry and exit points are welcome*
We are required to make some major adjustments to the way we operate notably:
- Only 1 entry point to the market is allowed (by the waffles stand) and only 1 exit point (by the fruit stand) is allowed. If you enter and immediately turn right, you need to exit the market and re-enter again to maintain the traffic flow.
- No on-site food preparation is allowed (no paella will be sold and waffles will be pre-bagged).
- No pets are allowed.
- Customers are practice social distancing at all times and use the opportunity to visit the market for grab and go only.
- Masks or some form of face-nose coverings are required.
- The three entry and exit points to the market will be closely monitored.
- We will be providing hand sanitizers.
- No touching of any food is allowed prior to purchase.
- All food needs to pre-bagged.
- No flowers or non-edible plants or craft items (except for masks or hand sanitizer) can be sold.
