Below are our preparedness plan for social distancing and safety, vendor opportunities, volunteer opportunities and FAQs.


The Workhouse Community Market was developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic as a safe and socially distant way to bring life back to our neighborhood! Every vendor booth is carefully measured to allow CDC recommended social distance between shoppers and hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the Workhouse campus. Masks or face coverings must be worn by all staff, vendors and visitors of the Workhouse, both indoors and outdoors, at all times.

If you are a small business owner, sales rep, aspiring entrepreneur or crafter, and are looking for a new opportunity to connect with your customer base, join the Community Market! We’ve welcomed lawyers, bakers, jewelry makers, authors and many more local businesses to our unique and historic grounds and we’d be THRILLED to have you!
