 Market day
 • Give yourself more time to set up and close down
Traders like to help each other out, but folk may be more cautious
If you can’t put it up yourself, it may be best not to bring it
If there is no alternative, ‘buddy up’ and only work with a few others
• Ensure social distancing in and around your stall
Mark out the customer’s journey on the floor, use chalk or tape
Do all you can to avoid crowding at your stall
Keep everyone two metres (6ft) apart if possible, including from you Work back-to-back or side-to-side and keep in small groups
• Mark out your ‘touch points’ where customers will be served and pay
Use a sneeze guard, display prominent signage, wear PPE Have free hand sanitiser available to customers

• Pack all the goods in a carrier bag for the customer

• Cut down on the number of times you need to leave the stall
Take enough food and drink with you to last the whole day
