Pets at the Market We all enjoy taking our four-legged friends on walks in Scott Park, which is allowed per City Ordinance (12.24.010-B.13). However, there are areas of the Market which offer produce and food, like a restaurant or grocery store, these areas are covered by the Wisconsin Food Code (6-501.115). For these sanitary and health reasons, we ask visitors with pets to stay within 5 feet of these areas. As always, guide dogs and dogs that provide services are welcome with their human handlers.
