The DCBA is thrilled to be partnering with Chico Velo Cycling Club in providing a bicycle valet booth each week at the TNM.
Located at the corner of 3rd & Broadway by Starbucks, cyclists will be able to park bicycles safely and securely from 6-9PM while enjoying all the market has to offer. They'll also "park" skateboards and strollers.
Chico Velo is spearheading this added benefit and is partnering with several other bike-related organizations, including Magic Pedal Productions and the Butte Bicycle Coalition.

Weekly, April 5th - September 27th, 2012~ 6-9pm on Broadway from 2nd to 5th Street
Farm-fresh produce, delicious food, arts and crafts, and live entertainment! Held weekly April through September from 6-9pm (rain or shine), the market is a street festival and certified farmers' market.
2012 Season Updates:
Vendors on Broadway between 3rd & 4th Street will be moving to the center of the street. Our objective in making this move is to improve customer circulation and re-engage downtown retailers on this block, a critical element to the success of the market and the vitality of downtown Chico as a whole. We request that our valuable vendor-partners who have become accustomed to occupying booth space on this block be flexible and open to the possibility of a location and/or booth configuration change. We recognize the new layout may pose challenges for staff and vendors, primarily during load-in and load-out times. Additionally, it may also affect access to power, proximity to vendors’ vehicles, and actual booth display for some. We appreciate your patience and flexibility during this transition as we are confident these changes will lead to a better overall market experience for our members and guests! A draft of the revised street layout can be found on our web site.
See the revised street layout!

Last summer Downtown Chico became the new home to Tin Roof Bakery, a local favorite known for its delicious breads and pastries and a popular stop at local farmers’ markets.
Tin Roof’s new operation occupies a warehouse-style building on the corner of 7th and Broadway that previously housed a furniture store and automotive services and has helped to bring a vibrant energy to the south-downtown area.
After years of serving as Chico’s premiere wholesale baker Tin Roof Bakery owner, Brandon Siewert, decided to open a storefront bakery that was easily accessible to the public.
