**The remaining Winter Markets at Koken Art Factory have been cancelled.**
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 developments and we are making the decision to cancel the remaining indoor Winter Markets at Koken Art Factory. We feel this is the best decision to ensure the safety and health of our vendors, shoppers, and staff.
As our outdoor market season approaches, we are working on changes and enhancements that will increase safety for everyone. We plan to spread the market out over more space to increase ventilation and decrease crowding. We also plan to add hand-sanitizing stations and we will share enhanced hygiene guidelines with our vendors.
The outdoor market opening day is a month away and much can change in that time and we will continue to monitor the situation closely. We will keep everyone posted if any changes occur.
In the meantime, we encourage you to support your favorite vendors in whatever ways you can. Whether it’s buying from them directly, through their website, or from a local store, please keep them in mind. We will publish a list of vendors and where to buy from them soon.
Stay healthy, St. Louis, we will see you soon!
Starting on December 7, the Winter Market will operate weekly at The Koken Art Factory (2500 Ohio Ave, 63104).
For fourteen years the Winter Market has been a monthly affair, but this year we’re going to do it every week. Market hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. With over 40 vendors, the Winter Farmers’ Market is an ideal outing for the entire family, with food and beverage available for purchase.
