Pets must be kept on a short, non-expandable leash.

Always keep your pet under control and by your side.

Keep pets away from baked goods, produce, plants, ready to eat foods and other food products.  This means head and tail ends!

If your pet is witnessed peeing on any product, the owner will be responsible for paying for that product.

Your pet must be sociable to people and other pets to earn the right to shop at the market.

Never let your pet go up to another pet without the owner’s consent.

Not everyone is a pet lover:  Be considerate.  Don’t allow your pet to jump on other people.

Come prepared to clean up after your pet!

If a pet is not behaving in accordance with these rules, the market staff or volunteers will ask the owner to remove it immediately.

Service Dogs will always be allowed in the market, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
