Market COVID Safety Policies & Protocols

As we’ve done throughout the pandemic, we will follow best-practices driven largely by information provided from health experts at the CDC & Milwaukee Health Department.


- We ask all unvaccinated guests to wear a face mask while inside the building, and we encourage anyone to wear a mask if they feel more comfortable doing so – even if they are vaccinated.

- Any Market employee who is unvaccinated will continue to wear a face mask.  Vaccinated employees are not required to wear a face mask, however we encourage any staff person to wear one if they feel more comfortable doing so – regardless of vaccination status.

- If customers don’t have a face covering and would like one, we will provide a mask free of charge while supplies remain.


Building Safety:

- 8 additional touch-free hand sanitizing stations have been added throughout the first level.

- Bi-Polar Ionization units have been added to the HVAC system.

- Floor markings spaced 6ft apart will remain in most locations.


- 2nd Level seating capacity is limited to accommodate social distancing. Physical barriers have been installed between certain tables.

- Customers will be encouraged to eat outside, as the Market has expanded outdoor dining areas along St. Paul Avenue and on the North side of the building.

- Seating areas have a regular sanitization schedule and are spaced 6-feet apart per CDC and Milwaukee Health Department guidelines.

- New HVAC filters have been added to screen finer particles. 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.

- Some vendors will continue to offer curbside pickup options for customers.

- Many vendors have implemented additional safety precautions, such as touch-free payment processes and modified food safety steps, to promote customer health and wellness.
