    Market Entry FASTEST WAY IN

    During Flower Day and other high traffic weekends.

    Most visitors exit I-75 then immediately make a left turn on Mack. This route could take 20-30 minutes in bumper to bumper traffic to eventually snake around and finally get into the market.

    There is a much faster way:

    1 – Exit I-75 then shoot straight across Mack.

    2 – Stay on the service drive (1minute).

    3 – Make LEFT turn at first street (Wilkins).

    4 – You’ll be in the market center in 3 minutes.

    So, while others are sitting in the long lines, you have found the first available parking space and shopping the market:)

    Using this route for many years. One crowed weekend I used this method and as soon as I crossed Russell two cars were pulling out, I jumped right into a prime spot right in front of the Eastern Marker office building.
