Physically distanced annual Thanksgiving Market held on Statehouse lawn
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - The annual Thanksgiving Market in Montpelier looked a little bit different this year than in previous years to ensure a safe holiday shopping experience.
Complying with physical distancing guidelines, 30 vendors spread out under a large open-air tent on the Statehouse lawn.
Business owners came from all over the state to sell meat, cheese, baked goods and maple syrup.
Vendors tell us they had to make a few changes this year to comply with COVID-safety rules.
“COVID has shut us down because we used to have samples for everything and now we can’t give samples so we’re looking at a long, cold winter,” said Vern DuClos of Gizmo’s Pickles Plus.
Shoppers had to wear a mask to get in. Curbside pickup was also available for anyone who didn’t feel comfortable shopping in person.
