Even before the COVID-19 pandemic began, consumers were already making the shift from indoor malls to outdoor shopping centers. As a preventative measure against the spread of the coronavirus, many indoors malls have remained closed since the start of the pandemic, as experts suggest people are far less likely to catch the virus in an outdoor setting. Open-air markets therefore, provide a safer way for shoppers to congregate, making the future of these outdoor spaces a bright and promising one.
These days, our new normal involves wearing masks, physical distancing and increasing the amount of time we spend outdoors. These safety protocols have given a boost to outdoor market destinations in addition to making curbside pick-ups much easier to facilitate. Here are a few more advantages of open-air markets.
At Cowtown Farmers Market, we operate both indoors and outdoors every Tuesday and Saturday with additional safety measures in place to ensure all our visitors have a comfortable and enjoyable shopping experience. With the holiday season fast approaching, avoid the indoor shopping mall crowds and instead, browse among over 400 unique vendors in our vast open-air market where you are sure to find that special something for everyone on your list.
