Parking Information

With recent construction on North Avenue, we want to ensure that your visit is as smooth as possible by providing up-to-date parking information:

  • Veterans Field Parking: Located in the U-shaped lot between Veterans Field and the market. Please be mindful of pedestrians and handicapped spaces.

  • Lakeside Avenue: Several parking spaces are available in the lot on Lakeside Ave, just 0.2 miles from the market—a quick 3-minute walk.

  • Light Department Employee Lot: Also 0.2 miles from the market, providing another convenient 3-minute walk.

  • Town Hall (1 Lafayette Street): The parking lot here is 0.4 miles from the market, approximately a 7-minute walk.

  • Common Street: Offers 4-hour customer spaces, including spots in front of First Baptist Church and Artichokes. This location is 0.4 miles from the market, about a 7-minute walk.

  • North Avenue (from Albion St to Church St): Parking is available on the business/residential side. Be mindful of signage regarding parking near corners and time limits. Parking along the railroad track side may result in a fee from the T, as the town does not own these spaces. This is approximately an 8-minute walk from Albion St.

  • Near the Bandstand: Additional spaces are available along the common, about 0.5 miles from the market, or an 8-minute walk.
