Farmers’ market mulls ban on live animals

February 5, 2010


The Downtown Lawrence Farmers’ Market is considering banning all live animals for the 2010 season.

“We have had a large number of complaints about the behavior of some dogs at the market, and we did have a few serious problems last year, so we are responding by having a conversation about the presence of animals at market,” market coordinator Tom Buller said.

The market is seeking input from the community before it makes a decision.
