2021 Market Guidelines

 

Until future notice we will remain an essential-only shopping operation. Our main goal is to provide a safe, organized shopping experience. You will note the absence of some of our beloved vendors and community groups. As soon as we can bring everyone back safely, we will do so. Before coming to the market, please review the current shopping protocol. Please note that as county orders change, we will make the necessary adjustments to our plan.

Your community is counting on you to be a responsible shopper. Please review our guidelines, follow the instructions of the volunteers at the market, and display that famous Cheverly community spirit by sharing patience, gratitude, and smiles (we'll see your smile in your eyes!) with vendors and neighbors. Please remember that all changes and new rules are put in place to keep us all safe.

Before the Market
 

Preordering

We highly encourage preorders, because this will make your shopping experience faster and contact-free. Visit our 2021 Vendors page for full information about how to preorder from each vendor.

 

Health

If you are sick, a member of your family is sick, or you have been in contact with anyone who is sick, STAY HOME. 

 

At the Market
  • In accordance with Prince George's County regulations, you will be required to wear a mask for the full duration of your visit to the market. Please put your mask on before entering the market space. Children who are ambulatory (walking on their own) must wear a mask - children in strollers or in their parents' arms are OK without.

  • We will have hand sanitizer available as well as hand washing stations.

  • One-way traffic will keep shoppers from crossing each other’s path. Please follow all signage indicating how to move through the market. 

  • Vendors will only be allowed to serve one shopper at a time. There will be limited waiting spots for each vendor. Please only stand where permitted. If the spots are full, please continue to other vendors. You will be able to circle back to ensure you can get to all of the vendors. 

  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other shoppers, especially when in line. Shopping circles and passing lanes will be drawn on the pavement, and market volunteers will remind shoppers to keep their distance. 

  • Pre-order with your favorite vendors when possible, for quick and contact-free pickup at the market. If you cannot pre-order, bring your grocery list so you can make your market visit as quick as possible. Please consult the market map to help plan your trip.

  • If you are sick, a member of your family is sick, or have been in contact with anyone who is sick, STAY HOME. 

  • Do not eat or drink any items purchased in the market space. 

  • As always, pets are not permitted in the market. 

  • Please keep visit short and sweet and minimize socializing while in the market space.

  • We have suspended yoga and music until we can safely reintroduce these beloved aspects of our market.

  • Once you have completed your shopping please exit through the designated checkout point. This is essential for us to maintain proper flow and to get an accurate count on how much space we have available for waiting shoppers. The exit will be clearly marked and staff with a market volunteer. 

  • Be please kind and courteous to market staff/volunteers, vendors, and fellow shoppers. 

Bathrooms/Cleaning/Sanitizing 
  • Our vendors will routinely clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces using standard cleaning practices. Additionally, the board and benefits tables will regularly be disinfected and cleaned. 

  • Please note that the public restrooms will be unavailable. 

  • We will have several hand sanitizing stations throughout the market. Please use it while entering the market, after visiting vendors, and on your way out.
