Effective on Thursday, March 10, 2022, the city ordinance that required masks in indoor public places has been lifted. Facial coverings are now optional. We will have a limited supply of masks available at the Market information desk (Located at the corner of High Street x E. New England Ave.), should you wish to wear one while visiting the Market.

We will continue with our other proactive measures to help reduce the spread of illness including having hand sanitizer available throughout the Market and increased spacing between producer booths. And, if you have a fever or are feeling ill, we ask that you please stay home.
