Have Questions About the Market? We have Answers!

The market is the second Saturday of each month, November – April.

Yes, everyone – including staff and vendors – must wear a mask at all times while inside the building. 

“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, New York State requires indoor event spaces to be limited to 50% capacity. This rule limits the program room capacity to 49 people, so you may have to wait outside before entering the building. This will allow us to provide enough space for everyone to maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet from others.

Everyone entering the market will undergo a short health screening and have their temperature taken with a no-touch thermometer for the safety of all attending. If you would answer “yes” to any of the following questions, please be advised that you should not attend the market. If you have any questions about these questions, please call the office Monday through Friday from 9am-4pm at 315-673-1350 or email info@baltimorewoods.org.

Question 1: Have you knowingly been in close or proximate contact in the past 14 days with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or who has or had symptoms of COVID-19?

Question 2: Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?

Question 3: Have you experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days?

Question 4: Have you traveled outside of New York State in the past 14 days?

When you arrive at the market, we will ask you, or a member of your household/group, to serve as the contact person in the event that contact tracing would need to take place due to a possible COVID-19 exposure. We will need your name and a phone number to contact you. This information will be stored securely and will ONLY be used for contact tracing.

The entire market will have a one way traffic flow, starting from the main entrance to the Interpretive Center and looping through the market. Everyone will exit using our back deck or a separate accessible doorway.  We ask that everyone stay six feet apart from other groups while waiting and wait to approach a vendor table until another person or household has vacated.

We want everyone to enjoy their shopping experience at the Winter Farmers Market! Each vendor has a six- foot display space and has hand sanitizer available for your convenience.

A portable restroom is available near the parking lot for your convenience. To maintain one-way traffic flow, indoor restrooms are not available.

The Winter Farmers Market will be operating using the Farmer’s Market Federation COVID-19 safety guidelines for local farmers markets. Click this link https://www.nyfarmersmarket.com/covid19-response for more information.

While much of the Interpretive Center will remain closed during the market, yes, the gift shop will be open! In addition to gift shop items, shoppers can also purchase artwork from our current Members’ Art Show that is on display on the walls of the program room. Only one person will be able to make a purchase at the front desk at a time, so please be patient. If you are shopping with a small group, we ask that one person completes the transaction to avoid clogging the main walkway. 

In the event you would like to shop at the farmers market and then visit the gift shop, you will need to adhere to the one way traffic flow, exiting the building through the deck doors and re-entering at the main entrance.  Staff at the desk will help you with your purchases and in directing traffic to help maintain six feet of physical distance as people enter the market.
