PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE MAIN CORRIDOR OF THE MARKET.
Kenosha HarborMarket will no longer allow pets through the main vendor thoroughfare. Beginning September 9, 2017, pets will not be allowed inside the vendor corridors of Kenosha HarborMarket. Pets, walked or carried, will not be allowed anywhere on the sales side of the market along 2nd Avenue, Place de Douai, or the areas on 56th Street where vendors are conducting business. Trained service animals will still be permitted by Federal law.
Pets will be permitted on the outside perimeter of the market, including the sidewalks behind the vendor tents on 2nd Avenue, the grass areas and walkways surrounding the Kenosha Public Museum fountain, and the grass areas east and west of Place de Douai. A map of the areas where pets are permitted is available below.
This change was made as the result of recent events and complaints related to animals at the market. With such a large market and such dense pedestrian traffic on the market site, safety is always the first priority. Additionally, health, customer comfort, and vendor requests were taken in to consideration by the board when this decision was made.
Many farmers’ markets across the country implement similar rules regarding animals. The Kenosha Common Markets Board always wants health and safety to be at the forefront of the market experience.
