All markets operated by Salem Saturday Markets (SSM) are open rain or shine.
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:
- If an "Extreme Weather Warning" is issued from NOAA (National Weather Service), the market closure time will be more closely evaluated for safety of market staff, vendors and guests.
- Notice of market cancellations will be issued as far in advance as possible and will be delivered to vendors by email and to the public through social media and press releases.
- If a decision is not made in advance and it is determined the "day of" due to unexpected extreme weather, participating vendors will be notified in person as to early closure.
- If the market remains open past noon, there will be no booth fee discount/refund.
