Is the parkade being filled up, or are people not wanting to use it? I've seen the allocated parking locations, and it strikes me as being adequate. :135:

I can see Wednesday being more of a challenge, but Saturday should have enough parking without inconveniencing Parkinson users.

Thats why I went to parkinson the other day to use the outside fitness equipment and there were vehicles parked everywhere there shouldnt have been.
Where’s bylaw? Downtown writing tickets meating their quota.
No more parkinson on wednesdays, and going downtown sucks. Light after light, waste of time

Is there any Farmer's Market Parking?

Post by MakesComicsInKelowna »

For now I'm parking at a friends business nearby but I have no idea where to park to go to the market at landmark square.

You could always try reading the News daily as there was a story very recently (yesterday or this morning) about people parking at Parkinsons Rec center for the Market.

There's a map displayed in the above article.

Saturdays the whole parkade is available for use.

I'm beginning to think a lot of people don't know how to read a map. :135:

Link below to pdf parking map for both Wednesday and Saturday that can be printed out.

I cannot read maps - I can however read and obey the posted signage. :/

Time I hit the Market, I didn't like when it was across from the Mall and people parked like goofs

They might have changed the location but the idiots who can't park still go.

We live quite close to the market and I have visited it every day since it has opened. Saturdays are great. There is lots of parking. It is very well setup. Much better than before. 3 areas to stroll through, lots of merchants and lots of produce even this early in the year.
Wednesday is a bit of a wash. Not a lot of merchants, only setup in 2 areas and almost no produce. Last week there was only one farm stall there.
We were really worried about how it would affect us as we live right there but like everything that Stober sets up this is really well done.
