Bike to Market

FABB has discussed the idea of encouraging more people to ride their bikes to local farmer's markets. We ride to the Reston Farmer's Market on Saturday morning, avoiding the hassle of finding a parking spot at the busy market at Lake Anne Plaza. Most people drive from the surrounding area and could easily go by bike.

John Brunow, owner of bikes@vienna, has been providing bike parking at the Vienna Farmer's Market all summer. As he says, "The Vienna Farmer's Market is a great way to start your holiday weekend. All summer I've been taking bike racks to encourage people to ride their bikes to market. Tomorrow I'm taking a booth to sell baskets and grocery getter bags. Come early."
Event: Vienna Farmer's Market Cycle Parking Plus A Sale
"We selling the means for you to haul your produce home"
What: Retail
Host: bikes@vienna
Start Time: Tomorrow, September 5 at 8:00am
End Time: Tomorrow, September 5 at 10:00am
