Village Market Shopping Guidelines re: COVID-19

As of September 16, 2020

Store Hours
Monday-Saturday: 7:30-1:00 & 3:00-5:00
Sunday: Closed

The Village Market is pleased to open the store with parameters.

Here is how it is going to work, and modifications may be made:

  • MUST wear a Mask
  • You will be given disposable gloves as you enter
  • 8 shoppers in the store at a time – 1 per household, no children
  • Please have your shopping list ready and organized as you will be going in 1 direction and not doubling back
  • Follow the arrows
  • Shop as quickly as possible so the next people in line can have a turn at the store
  • The cashiers will be ready behind plexiglass windows

Reminders:

Be thoughtful of others and move along in the store so others can come in. You may chat in the parking area but not in the store as time is on the essence.

If you prefer to place your grocery order by email just send the list to fishersislandvillagemarket@gmail.com and they will let you know what time to come pick it up.

Please consolidate your lists – shop and order as infrequently as possible – please don’t add 1 or 2 items to a list you have already sent in – just wait till the next time.

Everyone at the Village Market is ready and most willing to help you in any way!

Village Market Request:
Our Village Market crew are filling email orders Monday-Saturday 8am-5 (closed Sunday) and the cut-off time each day for all orders is 4:30. Please consolidate your shopping list and order only once per day.

The market filled over 100 email orders Monday, May 18 (and some were 3 and 4 requests from the same people). Please make it easier and more efficient and limit your list to 1 time per day.

The staff totally understands that people forget stuff and don’t want to say no to anyone, but if that item can wait until your next order, that would be most helpful.

Orders will be filled as they come in. Please allow time for orders to be filled. We will let you know what time your order will be ready for pick up.

The Market will remain open as it has been filling orders by email, and phone Monday-Saturday during regular hours. Until further notice, we will be closed Sundays. Sunday newspapers will be available for pick-up in the ATM entrance and the pricing will be posted.
Thank you.

For the safety of our staff and our customers alike, the Village Market is closing the doors to customers and will continue to serve your needs remotely, on an order-to-order basis. It is simple really:

Call, fax or text your orders to the Village Market (include a phone number where you can be reached). The crew will gather your items and call you when it is ready for pick up outside the store.

Orders will be filled as they come in. Please allow time for orders to be filled.

Regular Winter Hours
Monday thru Saturday, 7:30 – 1:00 & 3:00 – 5:00
Sunday, 8:15 – 12:30

ATTENTION: Due to current events, if you are sick, or think you may be getting sick, please DO NOT enter the store. Call (631) 788-7255 or email fishersislandvillagemarket@gmail.com. We will call you when your items are ready and make accommodations for you to get the items you need.

NO HOARDING 23MAR20:
Unfortunately, some people are attempting to hoard items on the shelves. Please be very mindful of the needs of others as you shop. Shipments are coming less frequently with smaller quantities due to the pandemic, and so we are asking everyone to keep shopping limited to only what is needed for a few days.  This is especially important now that more people are “sheltering in place” on the Island.

We are working hard to ensure that everyone will have what we need if we keep the needs of others in mind.

UPDATE MARCH 21, 2020:

As of this morning, we will continue to have the Village Market open to our customers during our regular business hours, HOWEVER, only 6 customers will be allowed in the store at a time.

This is our next effort to protect our customers and assist with the 6′ social distancing rule while protecting our employees so they may continue to serve the community.

In order to help this work efficiently, please have only one adult of any household enter the store at a time. 

Please only enter through the Entrance on the right and Exit through the exit door by the registers.

Please respect this request in order to keep the Market open and everyone safe.

Regular Winter Hours
Monday thru Saturday, 7:30 – 1:00 & 3:00 – 5:00
Sunday, 8:15 – 12:30
