2020 Market Questions!

Where is the market? 

The market is at 23 Ridge Road -  Chester, CT at the Chester Elementary School

 

When is the market?

The market is every Sunday from Mid June through Mid October.  10am - 1pm

 

Is there a mask requirement?

Yes.  This year due to Covid19 we are requiring masks to be worn when you are outside of your vehicle and walking through the market.   

 

Is this market a walk thru? 

We are opening the market as a Walk Thru but with restricted amount of patrons in the specific vendor area.

 

Can I still pre-order products and pick up my CSA at the market?

Definitely.  There will be a tent by the entrance for quick picking up of your prepaid items.

 

Can I bring my dog? 

We ask that no dogs come to the new location.  I know this isn't what you want to hear but we need to be sure that people don't stay longer than necessary. 

 

Do I have to drive to the market?

You are welcome to walk up to the market.  We do ask that you still enter at the gated area and come in with the rest of the patrons.

 

Can our kids play on the playground while we shop?

We ask that all family members stay together and do not use the playground area.  This unfortunately is not sanitized and is not possible for us to do so. 

 

Are there facilities available for public use?

Nope.  There is one porta-let for the Vendors and Volunteers only.  

 

If we order a pizza can we sit in the fields and eat? 

Sure.  That would be great.  We do ask though that you not stay too long as the parking is limited.  So if you plan on doing that, maybe walk to the market. 

 

Will there be music?

Not this year unfortunately.

 

What if I'm not comfortable walking through the market but still want to purchase from the vendors? 

You can always pre-order online but if you'd rather not we will have some volunteers available to be your personal shoppers if you'd like.  You can email us in advance (chestersundaymarket14@gmail.com) or simply tell the people at the entrance when you pull in that you'd like a personal shopper.
