customers and staff.

registers and credit/debit machines will be sanitized frequently throughout the day.

Display counters have been re-arranged to provide staff access from

are coming through the till to make a purchase. We ask customers to not come through the exit doorways to ask for food.
We will provide white handle bags at no charge for larger
quantities of corn. Please bring your reusable bags for all other purchases. We will have paper bags for sale at 25 cents each. We will also have Silver Rill reusable bags back in stock this
year for $2.50.
For customers who wish to avoid coming into the market we will provide pre-order services for curbside pick-up by telephone, for curbside pickup
during certain hours of the day. This information will be updated
shortly. Customers will pick up their order at the assigned time and pay upon pick up. Payment may be made by debit, credit, or cash. If you wish to pay
by cash we would appreciate exact change whenever possible; however, we will make change when necessary.
Please note that for the most part these are temporary measures during a very unusual time. Practices may change throughout the season to
continue to follow the Public Health Orders provided.
Please be patient and considerate of other customers and of staff, and if you have suggestions on how we can improve our service delivery we
would love to hear from you at email@example.com.
