Open Rain or Shine
All markets operated by Salem Community Markets are open rain or shine. However, if the wind gusts become too strong or there is threat of lightning, it becomes a safety issue, we will close early if it is unsafe.
Since markets are held in open-air venues, SSM reserves the right to close a market (with or without prior notice) if it is determined that severe weather conditions could compromise the safety of vendors, market staff and market guests.
Please note the following:
