At Marshall Farmers' Market we do allow dogs. We don't specify anywhere that we allow them, but we don't stop people from bringing them and they do bring them all the time.

We do allow dogs at Eagan Market Fest. We are in a city park so it has been tricky to tell people they cant have their dogs. We have not had issues that I am aware of.

Rochester disallows PETS. because we've seen mice, rabbits, a ferret, and even a bird. But most of those animals are in backpacks and we don't ask them to leave. But our signage discourages PETS.

That's a good point - "pets" vs "dogs" - I've seen an iguana, cat, someone asked to bring their pet chicken, etc. Also the confusion between allowing pets vs allowing service animals. Service animals have to be allowed.

We have zones 1-7 in Alaska! We have everything from temperate rainforest to tundra. If you look on the USDA website and view the map, it's pretty staggering to see the range
