The Oneida County Public Market outside Union Station in Utica is trying to get back to some semblance of normal and bring the market back to what it was before Covid-19.

The one-way foot traffic has now been suspended. People can move freely from booth to booth in whichever direction they choose.

The market is also opening up its children's programming and allowing families back into the markets.

There are 30 to 35 vendors a week.

The market is open every Saturday through the end of the year from 9 am - 1 pm outside Union Station.

Market Manager Beth Irons said, "We are feeling a little bit of a pinch because of Covid-19 restrictions. We are hoping that taking this one more step and welcoming the families and kids back to the market, we can kind of help restore the comfort level that a lot of our consumers have had with the market for many years." 

Irons said, "Of course we have Covid-19 restrictions that are remaining in place for the foreseeable future, which include masks and social distancing."
