A few friendly reminders ahead of this weekend:
Access – is via the Main Collie Street Entrance ONLY .
Social Distancing - Please adhere to 1.5m distance between others at all times.
Shop and Go - Grab what you need and exit the Market as soon as you can so we can keep shoppers flowing through the Market. We'd love to chat and have a leisurely Saturday with you but it will have to wait until we are back to normal.
Only one person per household please.  Leave the kids at home
• Please wash your hands upon entry and exit at the Market. We have handwash stations  set up through the market and offer hand sanitiser at entry point. 
Plan your shopping visit, later is better, there is plenty of produce in the market. If shopper numbers exceed the space allowed within our Market we will ask you to form a queue while enough people exit the Market. We ask you to respect our volunteers who will assist you regarding where to queue.
If you are feeling unwell, have been in contact  who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you do not attend the market.
Much more fresh produce will be pre-packaged to limit contact with fresh produce.  Do not touch unless you wish to buy, allow the staff to serve you.
Use Tap and Go, ALL traders now offer this facility so limit your exposure to cash transactions .
