How We Are Keeping Visitors Safe

For the safety and well-being of shoppers, vendors, volunteers and staff, it is important that everyone follow these Safety Protocols during Covid-19 mitigation:

  • All vendors, shoppers, and HBMS staff and volunteers must wear protective masks by order of the Commonwealth of PA Health Department.
  • Shop individually or in pairs to maintain social distancing
  • Signage posted at the entrance to the market listing shopper safety guidelines – please observe and follow these guidelines
  • Hand sanitizer located at the market entrances
  • Sanitize your hands before entering Burnside Plantation
  • Adhere to 6’ physical distancing while in the market. Give space to those around you, at least 6’ while shopping, waiting in line, and strolling the grounds
  • Only vendors and their staff may handle products; customers must not touch any products before they are purchased
  • Do not consume any foods while in the market shopping area. Enjoy your beverages and ready-to-eat foods in the picnic area not in the market area
  • No sampling of products
  • If possible, vendors will have a different person handle products and handle money, or they will wash hands or sanitize in between these tasks
  • HBMS will provide additional hand sanitizers at Admission Tents and Blueberry Shoppe in the Johnson Barn
  • Dogs are permitted on leashes, please refer to Blueberry To Go Market Map for designated Pet Stations with waste bags available
  • The pre-purchased 90-minute time slots and 30 minutes between time slots allows for the safe clearing out of visitors and time for sanitation before the next group of visitors
  • Tables in seating area will be disinfected after each usage
  • Gloves will be provided for Outdoor Game usage and games will be disinfected after each use
  • We will not be serving individually sliced desserts this year, but we will have individually packaged pies for purchase
