Now, vendors will welcome patrons back to Vickery Village, but with several safety measures in place, including:

  • Staff are required to wear face masks and gloves,

  • Only contactless payment options will be offered,

  • No sampling or touching of items.

In addition, patrons are encouraged to wear face masks and practice social distancing from vendors and other staff.

Meanwhile, the Vickery Village artisan market will resume June 13 and run weekly from 5-7 p.m.
