Farmers’ markets re-open with masks, distancing - Brattleboro Reformer

300 customers and 22 vendors showed up at the Brattleboro farmers’ market in the middle of a snowstorm. Not bad for the first day back.

"The farmers market opened Saturday, a week later than scheduled due to closures ordered by the governor in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. On April 24, Gov. Phil Scott allowed farmers markets to open in May "with strict alterations that focus on food distribution and prevent congregating," states a news release. Throughout the day, Houlihan counted more than 300 customers in attendance. "Our customers were great," she said. "They followed the protocols really well. It felt like a really safe environment." A greeter handed out masks to those without facial coverings and pointed them to a hand-washing station. Multiple signs advised customers to keep their distance, follow the flow of traffic in a single direction and not to eat on site."
