  • Lakeview Safe at Low-Line Market Lakeview Safe at Low-Line Market

    We are looking forward to the start of the Low-Line Market season! In the interest of keeping our vendors and shoppers safe, the market will look different from previous years. We're operating as an "in-and-out" style market - this means that until further notice there will not be live music, kids activities, chef demos, sampling or prepared foods made on-site. Traffic through the market will be strictly one way, with a clearly market entrance and exit. Gathering spaces will be cleared and shoppers are encouraged to follow the guidelines listed below. A map of the market is provided below for your convenience. 

    Thank you for supporting markets and the local food economy. We're grateful to be recognized by the state as an essential business, and we need your help and support to continue. Community doesn't stop just because the activities are gone - we are stronger together, Lakeview!

    DCASE is postponing the opening of all city and farmers markets until after May 30th. Low-Line Market plans to move forward with a tentative June 4th opening as scheduled, with guidance from DCASE to enact the guidelines we have listed below. We are grateful to the city for helping us ensure a safe and efficient market during this time!

    Guidelines are subject to change as we receive new information. Last updated: 05/18/2020
