Best Parking at the Market

 18 Bike program web page header

The Market offers an incentive-reward program for those who use bicycles for transportation to and from the City of Rochester Public Market!  

How it works

* Register for the program at the Market Office on any regular Market day during open hours (Tuesday and Thursday 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday 5 a.m. to 3 p.m.), or during any free-admission official Market special event.

bikeprogramsticker* Receive your official Best Parking at the Market bike helmet sticker (see right) and program flyer in the Market Office, the 2-story brick building located in the center of the market. 
* Affix your sticker to your bike helmet.  (Yeah, we want you to wear a helmet. It's good for you!)

* Each time you ride a bike to a regular Market shopping day or free-admission special event, you can enter monthly drawings for Market Gift Tokens. Note that you can participate in this program using community bike-share bikes as well.

* There’s no limit to the number of times you can win!  

* The prize drawings are done every month. One monthly drawing factors in the number of times a participant rides to the Market that month--the more times you ride, the greater chance you have to win that drawing. The other drawing is truly random--we do these because we wouldn't want someone *not* to ride if they don't feel like they can ride enough to win!  In other words, every time you ride to the Market, you have a chance to win!      

* To enter the prize drawings for each time you bike to a regular Market day or special event:
