Parking Updates for Bethesda Central Farm Market

From Central Farm Market FYI:

“As the market grows, parking spaces are at a premium. Please use the County lot at Old Georgetown and St. Elmo which is free all day Sunday. You may also use the library parking lot, however, you must remove your vehicle by 11:30am so the library staff and patrons can park. Also, please do not park by the side of the school in the dead-end circle. Children are being dropped off for Sunday school and there are “no parking” signs posted. Thanks for your cooperation!”
