Best Parking at the Market

 18 Bike program web page header The Market offers a year-round 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. 
 
(If you'd prefer to register remotely: send email to pmarket@cityofrochester.gov with your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and zip code. We'll sign you up and send you a helmet sticker and program flyer!)
  
* 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 Pace bike-share bikes as well--we even have two Pace stations at the Market! (See ridepace.com/roc/ for more info.)

* This is a year-round program, just like the Market, and 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:

Drop by the Market Office (the two-story brick house) with your helmet and sticker, and sign in for the weekly drawing---find the clipboard on the desk in the Office lobby.  

Or, send a smart-phone "selfie" showing your official helmet sticker with its number, bike, and any recognizable piece of the Market to pmarket@cityofrochester.gov
