Vendors may pick their sheep or attend to their milking cows. Whilst in the market vendors are to maintain a minimum of 1m+ distance between themselves and all other market users and staff.  Vendors are required to sanitise their hands on arrival and re-sanitise during their stay. Vendors are not to shake hands or make contact with others and are to keep their stay to as short as period of time as possible.
