Market Guidelines

We aim to connect you to great local food and makers, safely. Read our market guidelines so you’re ready for market day.

Help us protect our visitors, staff and farmers. Do not shop at the market if you:

  • Are experiencing any COVID-related symptoms, such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, or are feeling ill in any other way; 
  • Have recently travelled outside of Canada (last 14 days); 
  • Have had contact with a probable, or confirmed, case of COVID-19; or 
  • Are awaiting testing or test results for COVID-19

Mask up. Masks are currently mandatory at Evergreen Brick Works to enter any indoor facility or program space, and strongly recommended outdoors when physical distancing cannot be maintained.

Please be patient. In accordance with physical distancing guidelines, vendors will be positioned 2 metres apart and there will be a limited number of people allowed in the market at once. This means potential wait times to keep us safer!

Pick your shoppers. To help us reduce the number of people in the market space at once, try to limit your group to shoppers only if you're able. Other members of your group can wait for you outside the market.

Keep things clean. Remember to sanitize your hands when you enter the market space. Our vendors and market staff are sanitizing regularly to keep the space disinfected.

Keep your distance. Always maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from other shoppers and staff. That’s the equivalent of 3 snapping turtles!  

Follow the arrows. We have a one-way system to avoid any crowding. Look at the arrows on the ground to help you along the way.  

Hands to yourself. Vendors will put together all the items you wish to purchase, so there is no need for you to touch produce or goods unless purchasing.  

Shop speedy. Please try to keep your shopping time to no more than 20 minutes. This helps us to connect others to great local vendors, and minimize risk of transmission.

Note: The Evergreen farmers' market has been deemed an essential service by the Government of Ontario. As a result, even when the Evergreen farmers' market is indoors, individual customers do not need to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccine in order to attend the farmers' market. Please see below for a map of the indoor market.
