NEW IN 2020 -- enhanced health and safety measures
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the four City-operated markets located in Carrick, East Liberty, North Side and Squirrel Hill will introduce a variety of enhanced health and safety measures to minimize the spread of coronavirus.
“Most of what shoppers have come to love in past years will remain the same, such as same days, times, locations and vendors, and again this year, all farmers’ markets will accept food stamps (SNAP), credit and debit cards,” said Brian Katze, Manager of the City of Pittsburgh Office of Special Events. “New this year will be enhanced health and safety procedures for shoppers and vendors. Also, many of our vendors accept advance orders and payment online, so we’re encouraging patrons to preorder from their favorite vendors to limit time spent at the markets.”
“This year’s changes directly address opportunities to minimize the spread of coronavirus, and we recommend that at-risk individuals attend the markets during the first hour of operation when crowds tend to be smaller,” said Katze. “When markets open in June, our policy will be no lingering, no sampling, no pets on site. Also, no food will be prepared on site, although such food will be prepackaged to take and enjoy elsewhere.”
PLEASE NOTE: Shoppers and vendors will follow COVID-19 guidance issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the CDC.
On-site health and safety procedures at the four markets will include the following instructions for shoppers:
• Wear a face covering • One shopper per household • Maintain social distance of at least 6 feet • Pay with card or exact amount • Wash/sanitize hands • No pets permitted • Do not enter if sick
