More bike parking at the City Market

The metro’s biggest farmer’s market is a popular destination for cyclists, but has always lacked bike parking. New racks now provide secure parking for people bicycling to the market for grocery shopping, lunch at market restaurants, or a cup of coffee.

New hoop-style racks at three locations around the market have capacity for 16 bikes: The main entrance to the circle drive at 5th and Walnut, the north service drive on 3rd Street, and the northwest entrance from City Market Park and 3rd Street. Please be sure to use these racks when you visit the market. Showing high usage of the new racks is the best way to encourage market officials to add more bike parking in the future. Find these and other bike racks on our metro bike parking map.

    I’m excited that they finally got around to adding some! You would think that the farmers market would have had them already. Locking up to the fence, or a street sign just didn’t make sense for that area.
