Safety Measures


Enjoy your market favorites while staying safe!

Responsible Reopening: The Public Market is open, with a commitment to public health and safety. Here's what we're doing to help you stay safe:

Procedures and policies enforced during the phased reopening will use both WEDC, CDC and Milwaukee Health Department guidelines.  Many of the new measures the market is instituting during this first phase of reopening include:

-All Market customers, vendors and employees are required to use face coverings while in the building. Face coverings can be removed when at a designated dining area only.
- If customers don’t have a face covering and would like one, we will provide a mask free of charge while supplies remain.
-All vendors and management are required to administer temperature & health screenings to employees daily at the beginning of each shift
-2nd Level seating capacity is limited to accommodate social distancing. Physical barriers are also installed some areas as well.
-8 additional touch-free hand sanitizing stations are being added throughout the first level
-Customers will be encouraged to eat outside, as the market has expanded outdoor dining areas around the perimeter of the Market.
-Seating areas have a regular sanitization schedule and are spaced 6-feet apart per CDC and Milwaukee Health Department guidelines
-Indoor dining options will be offered at select vendor spaces in reduced capacity, proper distancing and in many cases will also include physical barriers between chairs/tables.
- Bi-Polar ionization units have been added to the HVAC system.
-New HVAC filters have been added to screen finer particles.  (In addition, through a combination of exhaust fans and our HVAC system, the air inside the building is estimated to be turned over every 3-5 minutes.)
-Additional cleaning measures and designated staff will be responsible to maintain the market’s already high level of sanitization standards.
-Some vendors will continue to offer curbside pickup options for customers
-Many vendors will be implementing additional safety precautions, such as touch-free payment processes and modified food safety steps, to promote customer health and wellness.

Temporary general indoor hours at the market will be as follows:

Monday through Saturday: 10:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m.

Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
