Get to the Market!

Spring is finally here and the weather is perfect for a visit to the Charlottesville City Market.



On Saturday, April 13, Velotelier is hosting a group ride from U.Va to the City Market.  The group will depart from Campbell Hall at 10:00am and take a scenic route through Grounds, the Fry's Springs neighborhood, and Azalea Park before arriving Downtown for the City Market.  Participants are encouraged to bring a helmet, water, and extra tubes. 

The City Market runs from 7:00am-12:00pm from April to December and features a variety of vendors selling fruits, veggies, baked goods, crafts, unique gifts, and much more.  This is a great way for students to learn how to get to the market by bike.

If you can't make it to the ride tomorrow, U.Va Sustainability will be hosting the "Progressive Farmer's Market" outreach event on Saturday, April 20.  Student representatives will be at the Thornton Hall bus stop and the bus stop on Alderman Road across from Gooch/Dillard to help students learn how to get to the City Market by taking the FREE Trolley.  Learn more about this Earth Week activity at www.virginia.edu/sustainability/earth-week/.
