Eastern Market Outdoor Farmer’s Line Closed Until Waiver to Operate Is Granted – New Rules Govern Access to Inside Merchants
by Larry Janezich
Today, Eastern Market Farmers received the notification below from the Chief Operating Officer of the Department of General Services – ten hours before the Saturday morning market setup. On yesterday, Eastern Market management imposed strict rules implementing the Mayor’s order governing access to food markets. Only one door on the north end of the market may be used for access, customers are required to wear masks, only 11 customers are permitted in the market at a time, and foot traffic in the market is limited to one direction – north to south.
