Since opening in 2012, the Market has provided free parking up to the first 90 minutes for customers who make purchases from our small businesses. The parking validation has always operated on the honor system, and we appreciate the overwhelming majority of patrons who used the system honestly. However, due to a small number of people who took advantage of the free parking without supporting the Market’s small businesses, we are forced to make changes.
Effective immediately, customers wishing to validate their parking tickets must bring the ticket and proof of purchase from any Market business to Gateau Baking Co. This additional step will ensure customers will still receive free parking for the first 90 minutes, while preventing others from taking advantage of the system.
