UPDATE In light of the developments in the last few days related to precautionary measures to contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and our focus on the health and safety of our employees, customers, partners and our industry as a whole, we have made the difficult decision to adjust our Spring Market schedule. While we know any disruption to business is difficult, we feel this is absolutely the right thing to do at this time to minimize the health risks associated with COVID-19. Please see below for our revised market schedule:
