This summer has brought many changes to the Edmonds Museum Summer Market.
The most obvious change is due to the new COVID-19 restrictions: You will find fewer vendors participating at the market, and the booths will be spaced at least 6 feet apart. Vendors and shoppers are now required to wear masks and we are only allowed two shopper “units” in the market for every vendor who participates. The reduction in number of shoppers in the market during market hours is dictated by the Snohomish Health District and enforced by our staff and volunteers to promote proper social distancing while enjoying the market. Another change is that all our ready-to-eat food vendors are located just outside the market at 5th and Bell, which allows shoppers to pick up their lunch or snack to go without eating in the market.
Taking all this into consideration, we at the market would like to thank all of you who have come down and shopped with us each week, sometimes waiting a bit in line before entering.
One question that has come up recently is, “Do any of your vendors offer pre-orders?” The answer is yes, many do. Each of our participating vendors has had the opportunity to offer a method of pre-ordering/pre-paying that works for them. Below is an updated list of who has a pre-order option and how to contact the vendor directly. Many of these vendors will allow you to pick up your prepaid order from behind their booth, so you would not have to enter the market, but it is up to the specific vendor how it would work best for them.
