We thank you for keeping MCFM a safe place by following our safety procedures:

  1. Stay home if you are sick. 

  2. Until the bell rings at 8am, we ask that you remain outside the market.

  3. In light of Governor Cooper's Executive Order 209, our safety precautions were updated. There is no longer an entry control system, but customers are free to move in and out of the market only after the bell is rung at 8am.

  4. Masks are no longer mandatory, but we welcome you to wear one if you feel safer doing so.

  5. Try to social distance (stay 6 feet apart) as much as possible. PLEASE NOTE: although we are an outdoor setting, adequate social distancing is near impossible in some areas of the market. Therefore, we strongly recommend those customers who are unvaccinated or a member of a high risk population to wear a mask. 

  6. You can avoid lines by pre-ordering and picking up later in the morning.

  7. If you see crowding or several people lined up at one vendor's booth, try completing your other shopping before joining that line, especially if you've already pre-ordered with that vendor.

  8. Do not handle the products without first checking with the individual vendor.

  9. Make use of the hand sanitizers available throughout the market.

  10. The Community House is closed to customers. The nearest public restroom is at the gas station on the corner of E. John Street and N. Trade Street.

  11. A separate table situated in front of of the community house is manned by a volunteer who can help you with market information, SNAP, market merchandise and cold drink sales.

  12. Please practice healthy and safe shopping and always show grace to others.
