Bike and Walk to the Market Day

Right now, farmers markets are full of delicious produce and the weather is perfect for a stroll or ride. At the Arlington Mill Farmers Market on July 13, celebrate the best of active transportation and healthy food choices by walking or biking to the market. You’ll receive a punch card to keep track of your biking and walking trips to the Market and enter a season-long raffle. Plus on July 13, enjoy farmers market BINGO, a backwards bike, and other kid-friendly biking and walking activities.

All Summer Long

All summer long, the Arlington Mill Farmers Market wants to reward you for taking active, healthy trips to visit the market. Each week when you bike or walk to the market this summer, bring your card to the CPRO booth to get it punched. At the end of the farmers market season, we’ll distribute giveaways to thank you for making healthy transportation choices. The more weeks that you bike or walk, the more chances you’ll have to get rewards.
