Based on consultations with Public Health, the BIA continues to manage and monitor the number of vendors and visitors and ensure proper safety signage and precautions. There will be a controlled entrance and exit for customer flow. Vendors have been provided with strict protocols and will be implementing safety measures as outlined by Public Health.

In addition, queuing lines will be implemented at vendors stalls and circulation of customers will be through a marked directional path to help minimize contact between visitors and vendors. Volunteers and staff will be onsite to provide assistance and to help manage visitor numbers.

Parking for the Uptown market can be found at the Waterloo City Hall and Regina Street lots. More information about the Uptown Open-Air Market can be found here.
