Knott's Berry Farm California Marketplace Reopening

Park: 10 AM - 5:30 PM Scary Farm: 7 PM - 2 AM View Hours

Select shopping and dining locations in Knott's Berry Farm's California Marketplace are open to the public. The California Marketplace locations include Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant, Berry Market, Peanuts Headquarters, Emporium, Virginia's Gift Shop, Chicken-To-Go, Candy Parlour and Farm Bakery.

As we continue to follow state and CDC health guidelines, these are the new safety measures and operational changes established to ensure the safety of our guests. Here is what to expect when visiting:

  • The State of California requires face coverings in indoor public settings for unvaccinated individuals who are not otherwise exempt, and recommends face coverings for individuals who are fully vaccinated.
  • Hand sanitizer is provided at each cash stand for use by the cashier and guest.
  • Frequently touched surfaces will be disinfected daily and sanitized frequently. This includes but is not limited to cash counters, scanners, EMV readers, pens at cashier counters, register screens, store fixtures, door handles, and shopping baskets.
  • Signage is present to aid guests in the proper direction of travel and as a reminder to practice social distancing
  • Sanitizing stations are displayed throughout the locations.
  • All associates are screened, including temperature and symptom checks using CDC guidelines before being allowed on the property to work.
  • Associates have been trained on the importance of handwashing, physical distancing, and overall hygiene.
  • Guests are encouraged to purchase using credit or debit transactions. If a cash transaction is necessary, a cash tray will be used to avoid the possibility of hand to hand contact.
  • Separate entrances and exits will appear at some store locations.
  • Limited indoor dining is available at select locations.


Our Knott’s team will continue monitoring conditions and best practices as we work with health experts and government officials. Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, these practices are subject to change. We will provide more updates regarding the theme park once we have more information. In the meantime, thank you for your loyalty and continuous support.
