Dog owners,please don’t take your pets to a farmers’ market.

You may not mind Fido sniffing your legs or leaving a dump on the pavement, but that’s exactly what I saw Saturday at the Proctor District market.

With all that food on display and small children milling around, I was surprised to see so many canines, especially since supermarkets and restaurants only allow service dogs. Why should it be any different for an open-air market selling food products?
