PREPAREDNESS & SAFETY

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.
