Maui Sunday Market set to reopen
The Maui News
The Maui Sunday Market will reopen this weekend under new health and safety guidelines, the Maui Food Technology Center announced Monday.
The market will run from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of the Kahului Shopping Center at 65 W. Kaahumanu Ave. Admission is free, and the event is open to the public.
“The Maui Sunday Market is known as the place where our community gathers each Sunday,” said Luana Mahi of MFTC in a news release. “Now, we’ll be coming together in a different way with a number of health and safety procedures in place as a result of COVID-19.”
Event staff will monitor vendors and attendees for social distancing and to make sure everyone is wearing a mask. Hand sanitizer stations will be located at each entry.
There will be no dining area. Food and product vendors will be required to wear a mask and gloves.
The event also will not host live entertainment, except for solo artists, and no bingo and line dancing.
Vendor tents will be spaced to allow a minimum of 6-feet of distance between. Vendors will also be responsible for coming up with their own plans for social distancing within their booths, tables or stalls.
“We’re excited to reopen our weekly event. While the way our community gathers may change, it’s a great opportunity to support our local entrepreneurs,” Mahi said.
The Maui Sunday Market is presented by the Maui Food Technology Center, a nonprofit dedicated to encouraging, educating and creating opportunities for Hawaii’s entrepreneurs. The event is supported by the county Office of Economic Development and sponsored by Alexander & Baldwin.
