The City of Jersey City will begin reopening their farmers’ markets with restrictions next week such as requiring face masks, providing a sanitation station, and discouraging multiple members of the same family from attending at once.

“Next week weâ€™ll start to open our 9 Farmersâ€™ Markets throughout #JerseyCity – weâ€™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.
“Weâ€™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. Weâ€™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.
