“Next week we’ll start to open our 9 Farmers’ Markets throughout #JerseyCity – we’ll take precautions, more space between vendors, masks required, rules in place BUT we have to trust residents to make good decisions,” Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted.

“We’ll offer each tools to manage costs, provide sanitation station + food for ppl in need at the end of the market day which will help both farmers + struggling families. We’ll discourage multiple family members, prepared foods + music to focus on essentials at this time. We need to slowly move forward.”

The appears to be a continuation of the first step of Jersey City’s phase I of reopening, with five municipal parks reopening under certain guidelines on Monday.

Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has since given the okay for state and county parks to reopen tomorrow at sunrise, half of Hudson County’s mayors still believe it’s too early to begin returning to normal.
