This May, the Hollywood Farmers Market is proud to participate in the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s (BTA) celebration of Walk+Bike Challenge Month. Walk or bike to the Hollywood Farmers Market this month, stop by the Information Booth and pick up a free Walk+Bike sticker.
Send a photo of yourself at the market to the BTA, and you’ll be entered to win a very special prize. Visit the BTA website for more information.
Here are some tips on biking to the farmers’ market:
Whether you shop by the backpack or bike trailer-full, biking home from the farmers’ market is a great way to go!
1. Bring along empty yogurt containers or tupperware to pour your berries into before you ride.
2. If you buy plant starts at the market, they will ride home nicely sitting upright in a bike basket or a milk crate strapped to a rear rack. Just pack your other produce around them so they don’t shift around too much.
3. Biking to the market is an added reason to enjoy a tasty treat while you’re there. You’ll need fuel for the ride home!
