2nd Street Market - Outdoor Market Only

Five Rivers MetroParks’ 2nd Street Market at 600 E. Second St. in downtown Dayton will reopen its outdoor market with limited vendors from Saturday, May 30, so the public can buy fresh produce, meat, and dairy from local farmers.

Until further notice, the Market will be open only on Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM, rain or shine. Shoppers will need to plan ahead, as a number of precautions will be in place to slow the spread of COVID-19.

All shoppers must enter at the east end of the Market’s south parking lot and exit at the west end. A limited number of people will be allowed inside the shopping area at a time, so visitors may have to wait in line — while maintaining social distancing and wearing face coverings — before they can shop. Signage and volunteers will help guide shoppers.

The limited hours and other changes have been made to protect the health and safety of Market shoppers, vendors, staff and volunteers during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Prepare Ahead for a Very Different Shopping Experience

All shoppers will be required to wear face coverings that cover their mouth and nose to protect the health and safety of the Market’s staff, vendors and volunteers, as well as their own health and safety. A vendor will be located at the entrance selling face coverings. Exceptions will be made only for those who cannot wear a face covering due to health conditions.

Shoppers are also asked to take these other precautions:

  • Social distancing of at least six feet must be maintained at all times.
  • Shoppers are asked to purchase their items and move along so that others may do the same, as well as to prepare a list to expedite shopping.
  • Shoppers are asked to designate one person per household to visit the Market.
  • Shoppers will not be allowed to touch products, but instead must ask vendors for what they’d like to buy.
  • Shoppers may use their own bags, but must package items themselves and refrain from placing their bags on communal spaces.
  • Dogs are not permitted other than service animals.
  • Restrooms and water fountains are not available, and shoppers will not have access to the interior of the Market building.
  • Shoppers should stay home if they’re sick or have been in contact with someone who’s sick.

Those who would like to shop from local farmers but would prefer to do so online can access links to Market vendors’ websites and social media pages at metroparks.org/localfood.
