  • Additional seating will be available to encourage guests to get their food and then find a seat away from other groups
  • One-way flow of traffic to decrease crossing paths with others
  • Floor decals to help guests maintain six feet of distance

All event proceeds benefit the Corporation for Findlay Market’s entrepreneurship programs, local food initiatives and beautification at and around the market.
