Milk Market remains open for business with Level Five Restrictions
As an outdoor venue providing an essential food service, the Milk Market is safe to stay open.
The Milk Market can continue to trade as normal on weekends in line with the introduction of Level Five Covid-19 restrictions in Limerick.
The Milk Market has urged the people of Limerick to continue their unwavering support for small local food producers and traders with a Saturday visit to the Milk Market courtyard, which remains open for business this weekend and throughout the Level Five restrictions period.
Milk Market General Manager, David Fitzgerald, said: “As an outdoor venue providing an essential food service, we can continue to operate in a very safe, open-air and regulated environment on Saturdays. We also will remain open with a reduced service on Fridays and Sundays with takeaway from the Pavilion units County Choice, Bon Appetit, Wild Irish Chocolates and Harpers Coffee. The only impact of Level Five is that all food must be sold as takeaway products and may not be consumed on the premises. Otherwise, it will operate in much the same way it has since March when increased health and safety protocols were implemented at the Milk Market.”
“We are acutely aware of how difficult the current environment is for everyone in Limerick, consumers and retailers alike, but we want the public to consider a weekend visit to the Milk Market as a welcome part of their weekly routine food shop with a break from being indoors.
“We want to thank our loyal customers who have stood by us since we re-opened in May after the initial lockdown period, and we want to reassure all members of the public that we have taken all precautions to ensure that we are fully compliant with the public health guidelines. We have a one-way system from entry gate at Cornmarket Row to exit at Watergate and we are urging the people of Limerick to continue to support your local farmers market traders who have worked so hard to produce and bring the freshest local produce to your doorstep in the heart of Limerick,” Mr Fitzgerald said.
The Milk Market will remain open as an essential outdoor food market on Saturdays 8am to 3pm in line with government…
“We would encourage the public to support local in any way you can over the six-week Level Five lockdown period, as an opportunity to enjoy some time out in an outdoor, safe venue, where you can buy a wide variety of the freshest food available. By visiting the Milk Market, you can help to support our stallholders, preserve a unique Limerick tradition, and help us all get through what has obviously been a very challenging time for everybody in Limerick and beyond.”
“The health and safety of our customers, traders and staff is our top priority. We have altered the layout of our stalls, increased sanitisation, introduced Perspex screens and physical distancing measures, so we are fully compliant with all Government and HSE protocols. We remain particularly conscious of giving added protection to the elderly and the vulnerable, so we would advise vulnerable customers that the market is quietest between 8am and 10am Saturdays. The Market is busiest on Saturday between 10am and 12.30pm, and becomes less busy again between 1pm and close of business at 3pm,” Mr Fitzgerald added.
