Firearm Free Zones and Farmers Markets

Several County Park Authorities have set up firearm-free zones for parks and public buildings...and we want to know how your market is handling this matter.

Does your market address firearm free zones? Are you creating maps? What areas are you designating as firearm-free? Are you including parking lots, sidewalks along the market, etc?

Any information that you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Kim
