White’s Farm Flea Market
COVID-19 Reopening Policy and Procedures.

The health and safety of our customers, vendors, staff, and community as a whole has been, and will continue to be the absolute paramount priority to White’s Farm Flea Market management. During this unprecedented time the team at White’s Farm made the decision to shut down market operations before the government order to do so was issued, we did this in an effort to help slow the spread of the virus in our local community and surrounding areas. While the prospect of opening a business that attracts so many people is daunting, there are many aspects of our business that lend themselves to hosting a safe gathering. Most importantly nearly all of our market is outdoors. According to the CDC open air environments make transmission of communicable diseases more difficult when compared to indoor environments. Now that time has passed and the viruses spread has been slowed we feel conditions are suitable for reopening with the following conditions.

  • Vendors must abide by sanitization policy approved by the Franklin County Health Department - a copy of this policy is on file in the office and available for review for any patron.
  • Employees will undergo health screening upon arrival.
  • Employees, vendors, shoppers, and management will be encouraged to wear face coverings per the recommendation from Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH).
  • Social distancing signage will be posted.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be available.
  • All indoor seating will be moved outdoors and spread out.
  • All food service will be carry out only (no congregating in food service areas).
  • Indoor offices will be closed to the public, management will be available for customer interactions either through window openings or outdoors.
  • ATM machine will be moved outdoors and hand sanitizer will be available.
  • At a minimum no miscellaneous live auction will be held until stage 5 of Indiana back on track guidelines; auctions will resume only in instances that appropriate social distancing can be maintained.
  • All livestock auction billing and payments will continue to be done remotely, no bills paid or checks issued at market.
  • No more than 250 total occupants permitted indoors at the same time.

  • We are promoting and encouraging the observation of CDC guidelines:

  • If customer is sick, or has been sick in the last 2 weeks they should remain home
  • Vendors , customers, and staff should maintain a 6 ft distance between each other at all times.
  • Vendors are encouraged to spread booth space out, no penalty will be issued for additional use of space.
  • Customers should refrain from handling items they do not intend to purchase, this will be especially important in the selection of produce.
  • All visitors are highly encouraged to wear face covering.

    Dr. Jonathan White, PharmD / MBA will serve as health officer for the market. Any questions or concerns regarding reopening should be directed to him (Jonathan@whites1922.com).

  • Vendor Sanitation Protocol

    Per Indiana Back On Track guidelines, flea markets will be governed under the same guidelines as shopping malls. Under this guidance every retailer (vendor) is required to have and abide by a sanitization protocol. Vendors have the option to either formulate a sanitization plan and submit it to the Franklin County Board of Health for review, or abide by a stock sanitization plan submitted on retailers behalf from White’s Farm. That sanitization plan is as follows.

    1. Under stage 4 (June 14th) and beyond Indiana back on track guidelines facial coverings are considered optional however the CDC is still recommending the use of facial coverings to slow the spread of COVID19. White’s Farm staff will be wearing facial coverings and we are strongly recommending the use of a facial covering for our vendors.
    2. Vendors will sanitize surfaces open to the public touch no less than every 30 minutes.
    3. Vendors will maintain at least 6 feet distance from shoppers and other vendors.
    4. Vendors should encourage payment via credit card, in the case the vendor does not accept credit cards and multiple people are staffing a booth one vendor should be designated as the vendor handling the cash and should not handle wares that may be touched by the public.
    5. Vendors will sufficiently clean hands with sanitizer between transactions with shoppers.
    6. Vendors should avoid touching their face with hands as much as possible.
    7. Vendors should discourage handling of items by the public the shopper does not intend to purchase.
    8. As before this pandemic, only White’s Farm staff is permitted to sell food or drinks intended for consumption while on White’s Farm premises.
    9. Smoking or vaping must be done in a way that does not affect the public in attendance (you must smoke a sufficient distance from other patrons so that what you exhale will disperse into the air without coming in contact with others.

    Violation of the protocols within this plan may result in dismissal from the market and statutory penalties from the Franklin County Health Department.
