Dogs allowed at the OUTDOOR market ONLY. Please Did you know that an outdoor temperature of 75 degrees equates to 125 degrees on asphalt? On these hot days, it is probably a good idea to leave your 4-legged friends at home in the shade. Dogs visiting the market should be WALKED by responsible adults before coming to the market and kept on a short leash and away from the food tables . Thank you for your consideration.
