Some food markets to reopen in move to restore equality
Some markets in French-speaking Switzerland are reopening to customers this week in an effort to provide consumers with alternative food outlets.
After weeks of queuing at supermarkets - or waiting for those most rarest of things, a food delivery slot - it looks like some of us might soon have another option.
Cantonal authorities in Lausanne and Geneva are allowing a partial re-opening of some market stands from this week.
On Thursday, 11 stalls selling basic foods will open in Geneva’s Plainpalais - complying with the rules of the Federal Office for Public Health.
Stands will be 70m apart, with marking on the ground to help customers queue at a distance from one another.
Lausanne has also announced partial re-openings from today.
It’s said the move is to restore some equality between food vendors - as supermarkets have been allowed to remain open, while others have suffered from the lockdown.
