Market Policies & Things to Know

Please help us ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone:

  • We welcome anyone still wanting to continue wearing a face covering to do so.
  • Multiple hand sanitizer stations will be set up throughout the market for customer use.
  • Stay home if you aren’t feeling well.
  • Please help us maintain a dog-free hour and only bring your dogs after 10am. Dogs MUST be on a 6-foot nonretractable leash.
  • Please pack out your trash or use the cans by the info booth. We’re working to become a zero-waste market.
  • No smoking or vaping in the market area.

Farmers’ Market Dog Policy

Howe Meadow – To maintain the comfort of our early shoppers, please respect our efforts to keep a dog-free hour and only bring your dogs after 10am. Trained service animals are still expected to abide by the following policies.
Winter Market – With the exception of trained service animals, dogs are not permitted at indoor markets.


Dogs and owners are expected to abide by the following provisions to maintain the welcome of furry friends. Owners are socially, legally and financially responsible and liable for their pet’s behavior at all times.

  • Dogs must be on a 6′ non-retractable leash- even pets in bags and carriers. This is a National Park policy and will be enforced. Please ensure that leashes do not get tangled in tablecloths, displays, or tent legs, and do not become a tripping hazard.
  • Not all dogs are appropriate for the market setting. Large crowds, accessible food, small children and other dogs can challenge your dog’s attention and behavior.
    – If your dog is not comfortable in these conditions, please leave them at home.
    – If your dog has ANY reactive tendencies, please leave them at home.
    – If your dog is prone to barking, please leave them at home.
    – The market is not an appropriate place to train your dog to handle these conditions.
  • Dogs must be socialized with other dogs and children. Dogs must be comfortable being pet by strangers. Barking and growling is not allowed. Aggressive dogs are not welcome.
  • Any damages caused by a dog (to products being sold, fixtures, tents, tables, etc.) will be the responsibility of the dog owner and may include the costs associated with the replacement or cleaning of the damaged item.
  • Dogs must be short-leashed with the leash in your hand, well-mannered and by your side at all times.
    Dogs must be kept away from products, plants and other market/vendor fixtures – both head and tail ends.
  • Everyone has a right to feel safe and comfortable. Not everyone loves your dog, or dogs in general, as much as you do. Please keep your dog from approaching strangers.
  • You are responsible for your dog’s business. Please prevent them from doing their business in the market area. If your dog does make a mess, you are responsible for cleaning it up.
    – If your dog’s business compromises the product or equipment of a vendor, you are responsible for making financial reparations as the vendor deems appropriate.
    – Please be prepared with pick-up bags; you are responsible for disposal. (Howe Meadow is a Zero Waste event – you are required to pack this out.)
  • Any violations of the above practices, or any instances, that compromise the safety – human or food – of the market, will require you to remove your dog.
  • Please courteously cooperate with Market Staff and Volunteers in addressing any concerns that arise from the presence of your dog.
  • Market Board Members, vendors, and volunteers will request that owners remove dogs from the market if the above rules are violated.
