DOG MANNERS AT ABFM

Dear Canines (owners please read):

To avoid a ban on dogs at market, we’re instituting these simple rules. Thanks for following them.

• Always keep your human on a short, non-expandable leash
• Stay under control and at your person’s side at all times
• Be sociable with people and other dogs; remember that some people are not “dog people”
• Don’t “do your business” in market environs
• Stay away from all produce, plants, and food products

 


BAG IT! 

Each season we create an ABFM bag that sports our logo on one side, and the logos of our terrific Partners on the other. This season, we've gone BIG and ORGANIC! This large bag is made from heavy-duty, organic cotton canvas with poppin' red handles. These will go fast, so don't wait. [Also, thanks and a shout-out to Rick Roth of Mirror Image, who made it possible for us to offer this bag without breaking your bank.] At market, check out our ABFM aprons and organic T-shirts, as well!
