PA - No non-food vendors? Not arguing, but is that a fact?
Carol Zellers
21:50
I believe some non food vendors are allowed, i.e., soap
Abigail Gildea
22:00
I’d talk to your county health dept. but Allegheny County Health Dept. said no non food vendors (but flowers don’t count towards that)
Brian Francis Moyer
22:08
That is my understanding
Brian Francis Moyer
22:31
soap is
Carol Pyle
22:43
So no soap but flowers are okay?
Abigail Gildea
22:57
I’d refer to your local county health dept.
Carol Zellers
24:01
When I checked the PA list a few weeks ago, soap manufacturers were considered a life essential business

Is this PA only or nationally?
Lisaoneill
31:18
Alcohol?
hfionaharrison
31:40
This is just PA I think. Our WV governor has not put out those kind of stipulations.
Molly Kornblum Berntsen
31:46
These restrictions are being set state to state.
Brian Francis Moyer
31:52
beverages are ok but not specified

Brian can you share that list or a link to it?
cherylgilmore
33:26
Oops sorry, I see you already have, thank you!

And what about dog food?
Brian Francis Moyer
36:43
looking at the list alcohol is not allowed with the exception of beer distributors.
Molly Kornblum Berntsen
39:54
Veterinarians and pet supply stores are considered essential and permitted
Brian Francis Moyer
39:55
I think pet food is ok. Falls under animal feed manufacturing
Laurie Fletcher
40:19
So no wineries - right?
Carol Pyle
40:34
So dog treats would be fine?
Meghan Filoromo
41:37
I see the masks are now required of all workers and customers: https://www.inquirer.com/health/coronavirus/live/coronavirus-covid-19-philadelphia-pennsylvania-new-jersey-confirmed-case-updates-news-20200415.html
Molly Kornblum Berntsen
42:36
I would think that dog treats fall under “pet supplies”
Lisaoneill
42:56
Comment on producer’s production teams. I am telling producers if they have someone on their production who is positive, or showing symptoms that they cannot attend.
Lisaoneill
46:08
one more alcohol question: we are a pre-order market only; zero-contact. How would a beer producer be able participate when they cannot verify age?
Meghan Filoromo
46:30
We heard that the PLCB is still allowing alcohol farmers market permits?
Reza Djalal
47:00
What are best ways to communicate to the public any policies the market might have in place? What sort of language is advisable? Is it better to describe things in technical ways or in more “layman’s” terms?
Carol Pyle
47:25
But the winery is open and selling to go wine.
hfionaharrison
50:54
I have a question when she gets a chance to take another one.......
Alice Ziegler
51:08
What about potted plants - veggie & floral?
Molly Kornblum Berntsen
52:09
My understanding is that food-producing plants are okay, but that floral would fall under florists/not allowed.
Helaine Harris
53:15
Helaine here from Historic Lewes Farmers Marketin DE. Re drive-through--we have contacted our insurance agent.
Lyn Garling
55:48
I think it’s safer to sanitize between each transaction. If people wear gloves but don’t change them, it’s the same as not sanitizing.
Denise
57:32
I agree with Lyn, If you don't change gloves, it's a problem. People feel safe wearing gloves and they should not.
Molly Kornblum Berntsen
58:13
Many markets are using the guidance that no customers touch produce before they buy it, they just point to what they want and the vendor places it on a table in front for the customer to pick up. So hopefully there won’t be much of an option for cross-contamination either way.
Alex
58:27
Any thoughts on how what size signage should be?
hfionaharrison
01:00:24
Alex - AS LARGE AS POSSIBLE! LOL!
Carol Pyle
01:02:29
Getting people to stop using cash is very hard.
Linda
01:06:06
Lisa, I'd love to see a couple photos of your pickup tables, with the washline and clips etc.
Carol Pyle
01:14:02
