Last year we decided to cancel our spot at the farmers market due to Covid precautions and an oversubscribed CSA. This year we will have our booth again, and I am wondering what modifications we should be planning given that Covid is still a factor. The market we are part of has done a lot of layout changes to give vendors more space, but pre-orders are not required or particularly encouraged.
We will certainly be wearing masks and pre-bagging most (all?) of our items. Are there other things people have found kept you safe/gained your customers' trust/made things easier? Payment changes? Booth design changes? Staffing changes? Even small details like where you stand in relation to the customer or Covid-related problems you had to solve as last year's market season unfolded would be helpful.
Thanks, I will repost replies ASAP as I know we are all gearing up for a busy and safe market season.
