Attending Market Safely

Dallas Market Center is committed to balancing good health with good business. As you plan your visit during the week or for Markets, we've gathered important updates and guidelines below including on-site measures, registration information, travel tips, dining options and more. 

As of March 1, 2022, the CDC recommends indoor masking only in communities at a high risk level for COVID-19. In accordance with the CDC recommendations, mask wearing at Dallas Market Center is no longer recommended by the CDC nor mandated by Dallas County.

The natural design of our marketplace: open parking, large entryways, quick registration in multiple areas, wide hallways, multiple escalators to all floors, and showrooms with controlled access to allow distance between customers. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.


The FastPass: Get In Quick
For low-contact, quicker entry, the FastPass is your best option. By visiting and letting us know which market you are planning to attend, we will instantly send a FastPass via email. Once you arrive at market, simply show us your FastPass email (printed or on your mobile device), we will scan it, and your badge will print automatically. It's that easy.
