DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - After a six-week closure amid coronavirus fears, the popular Durham Farmers’ Market reopened Saturday to long lines of mask-wearing customers.

The market closed in March because of the city’s stay-at-home order.

WRAL-TV reports that people waited in long lines that stretched around the block as the market reopened Saturday.

The market had several new safety rules in place, including social distancing guidelines and mandatory face masks. It also had hand-washing stations set up to help prevent the spread of germs.

In a Facebook posting, organizers said pre-orders and pre-pay are strongly encouraged.

“We look forward to seeing you soon, from a 6’ distance of course!” the posting said.
