Farmer’s Market Tips

Ready to head out to the farmer’s market? Before you go, keep these few tips in mind!

  • Keep your dog leashed and be sure they are socialized and prepared to go to a busy area where they may potentially meet other pups and children
  • Bring a collapsible water bowl or dispenser with you in case the farmer’s market does not offer any water bowls. It’s important your dog stays hydrated, especially during the summer! Check out our blog post “These Are The 5 Products Every Pet Parent Should Own” for more useful tips!
  • Avoid going to the farmer’s market during particularly warm days, or plan to visit earlier in the day, as the asphalt can get too hot for your pup’s paws.
