A Friendly Note About Pets at the Market

By Sandy Lawler, Manager of the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar

I love my dog. Everyone that knows him calls him Happy Jack… the happiest 70lbs of black and brown pup around. I take him to the shore, dog parks, walk him all over... but there are just some spots I don’t take him. I don’t take him to crowded places and events like the Baltimore Farmers’ Market & Bazaar. It’s too crowded, and I do not want to stress him out and set him up for an incident that could hurt someone or him.

So as a reminder, pets are not allowed at the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar, and it is a Baltimore City Health Department ticketable offense of up to $1,000.00!

Thank you for your cooperation.
