A Message to our Vendors:
The Summerland Rotary Sunday Market committee hopes each one of you is staying safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At this time and after reviewing the linked media release (March 26th, 2020) from the BC Centre for Disease Control at http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19/community-settings/farmers-markets the Rotary Club of Summerland has determined that it would not be able to host the Summerland Sunday Market under the current COVID-19 rigid restrictions.
- discontinuing all food sampling
- cancelling activities that promote gatherings
- not allowed to sell crafts and artisan products
- limit entry to allow for physical distancing
However, we remain hopeful that before May 30th (nine + weeks from now) these conditions may be lifted in which case, our Market could start by our scheduled opening date of June 21, 2020.
The Summerland Rotary Sunday Market committee will keep you updated on any decisions that are made between now and May 30th that would affect yourselves and the operation of the Market for the 2020 season.
Please contact me by return email if you have further questions.
Take care and stay safe
Linda Van Alphen
