Free Trolley From Campus to Downtown Farmers Market Will Begin June 13
The Syracuse University community is invited to visit the Downtown Farmers Market in Clinton Square this summer, with free transportation provided by Parking and Transportation Services (PTS). The market runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Tuesday beginning June 13. To help faculty, staff and students take advantage of the market, PTS will run a lunchtime trolley from Main Campus to Clinton Square every Tuesday from June 13 to Aug. 15.*
The market features local farmers and produce vendors every week, selling fresh, seasonal vegetables, fruits, baked goods, flowers, plants and more. Local food trucks will also set up shop at the market to offer a variety of lunch options.
Although employees are encouraged to visit the market in support of our local initiatives, they should obtain pre-approval from their supervisor prior to leaving the workplace.
The trolley stops and schedule will run as follows:
First loop: The trolley will leave the College Place bus stop.
The trolley will make a second stop on Waverly Avenue, behind Newhouse 2, to pick up riders.
The trolley will then proceed to the Downtown Farmers Market, dropping passengers off at the corner of West Washington and Clinton streets.
Second loop: The trolley will return to campus and revisit the two pick-up locations above before returning downtown. As it returns to campus, the trolley will pick up any employees ready to return to campus.
The trolley will return to the corner of West Washington and Clinton streets to make its last pick up of employees for their return to campus.
Visitors can stop at the Downtown Committee of Syracuse information booth and show their SU I.D. to receive a free farmers market tote.
*Note that there will be no market on Tuesday, July 4. The market on Tuesday, June 20, will be located at the One Lincoln Center parking lot due to set up for the Syracuse Jazz Fest.
