Marketmobile Free Shuttle to Food Truck Rodeos

We're running a free Marketmobile Shuttle to Food Truck Rodeos from the East End Parking Garage at the corner of East Main and Scio Streets through the end of September. Regular parking rates apply in the East End Garage, but the shuttle is free, quick, and easy to and from our extremely busy Rodeos! The first shuttle leaves the East End Garage shuttle stop at the corner of East Main and Scio Streets at 5:30 p.m on Rodeo days, and the last leaves the Market shuttle stop at 9:30 p.m. The shuttle ride is less than five minutes and runs on approximately 20-minute loops. 
Note that this shuttle also runs on busy regular Market Saturdays in summer and fall: Click here for more information about the Marketmobile shuttle, and for a map.
