Due to the escalation of cases of COVID-19 in Louisville, the Market Committee made the decision not to allow reusable shopping bags in the market. Please review our list of rules & regulations for safely visiting the Market during COVID-19. Wear your mask and leave your bags at home. Vendors offer new, single use bags.
The concern with reusable grocery bags whether plastic or cloth is that they act as an additional touch point, like money, that might be contaminated due to an ill customer and then handled by a vendor who is bagging the items.
The relevant CDC guidance concerning this can be found at this link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/organizations/grocery-food-retail-workers.html.
