Because of the increasing number of both people and pets at the Market, the decision was made by the Market Committee in 2004 to no longer allow any type of pet on the Market grounds. This includes pets that you might wish to carry or transport in a bag, a stroller, a purse or a pocket.
As was the case then, most of our Committee members are pet owners. Thus, it was hard for us to make that decision.
We love our furry friends. Just as you do, we want to make sure they are always healthy. That is not possible with so many feet, sounds, sights, and smells. And that is not to mention the hot, humid summer weather. So please leave your pets at home. Bonafide service animals are always welcome. Emotional support animals are not considered Service animals. Thus, they are not allowed on Market grounds.
