Greenville City Council on Monday will hear proposed changes to the popular TD Market ahead of a potential June 6 opening.
Among them, a temporary name change to TD Essential Market. The name reflects the market’s effort to offer fresh and local essential grocery items while still maintaining health and safety guidelines, according to materials prepared for Monday’s meeting.
The market would have other restrictions including a maximum of two vendors per booth, limit of 80 customers at a time and 15 city staff members.
Vendors would be prioritized for participation based on Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) guidelines. 83 vendors were accepted into the 2020 TD Saturday Market lineup, 59 of them are compatible with SNAP guidelines.

Patrons would also be required to wear a mask, have their temperature checked before entering the market area and keep six feet of distance between themselves and other market attendees.
In addition to participant requirements, fencing would be placed around the perimeter of the event site, Greenville Police will be stationed at all major entrance points, cones will be used to help with the flow of traffic and brightly colored X’s will be placed at market booths to indicate where people should stand.
A final decision on proposed changes will be up to event staff, according to Mayor Knox White.
