Brentwood Farmer's Market: DOGS ARE PROHIBITED

Did you know? Dogs at the Brentwood Farmers Market are prohibited due to the food service businesses. In fact, the Farmers Market can be closed if found in violation. HOWEVER, Service Dogs & their usage is protected by Federal law.

The operators have tried to police it better, but most dog owners have been declaring their animals as “service dogs,” with greater frequency than might be expected. Federal law prohibits many restrictions or even inquiries as to the legitimacy of the claim that the animal is a service animal.

When it is not obvious what service an animal provides, only limited inquiries are allowed.
Staff may ask two questions:
(1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability, and
(2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform.
Staff cannot ask about the person’s disability, require medical documentation, require a special identification card or training documentation for the dog, or ask that the dog demonstrate its ability to perform the work or task.
Please respect the legitimate reasons for the law and to not abuse the rights of both those who need the help of the dogs and those who operate businesses.
