Dear Market customers,
The recent Federal Government’s announcement of a banning of non-essential, organised public gatherings of over 100 people across Australia does not impact usual Market trading at this point. As a result, and to ensure that the public has access to fresh and essential supplies, the Central Market Arcade will continue to trade as usual until advised otherwise.
The City of Adelaide, as owners of the Central Market Arcade, are continually taking advice from this authority and others regarding risks posed for our Market community and the impacts these may have on operations.
The Central Market Arcade is implementing the following additional health and safety measures in response to the COVID-19:
In addition to existing full-time on-site cleaners, the frequency and intensity of cleansing throughout the arcade have been increased, with a priority focus on common touchpoints. Cleansing processes include antibacterial, antimicrobial cleaning agents that reduce the risk of viruses. Additional handwashing and personal hygiene signage have been implemented in all bathrooms.
Securely installed hand sanitisers have been made available within the Arcade.
The installation of Federal Government developed signage promoting “Simple steps to stop the spread” across the Arcade and within traders’ stores.
Working with traders who utilise outdoor dining settings to implement ‘social distancing’ layouts, which will be regularly monitored by our onsite security.
Our website and Facebook page will be used to communicate updates or changes to our operations as promptly as possible with the Market Community.
To prioritise the health and safety of the Market Community, our weekly free activities and entertainment events have been postponed until further notice.
For further information on all COVID-19 matters, please visit the Federal Department of Health. Their comprehensive website provides the most up-to-date and relevant information available. Information regarding the Adelaide Central Markets response can be found on their website.
Given this unprecedented situation, we ask our supportive Market Community to continue to visit the Central Market Arcade and the Adelaide Central Markets to support our traders, their families and the suppliers who rely on your patronage.
Should you have any further inquiries, please contact our Arcade Manager: 08 8203 7998
