Those vendors are packing all items in disposable plastic bags, and hand sanitizer dispensers are available for customers.

The Market, located at 205 South Main Street, is open each Friday from 3-6 p.m.

Vendors are Tony Sessoms of Cherry Farms with fresh produce, meat, peanuts, pecans, and eggs; and baked goods from Jean Martin’s “The Bakery Bus.”
