The market will take place in the parking lot of town hall every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Officials say the decision was made in “the best interest of public health and out of an abundance of caution” to prevent the spread of the virus.

The Town is encouraging the public to follow social distancing guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention while shopping.

  • Masks are encouraged for everyone.

  • Vendors will be spread out.
