The Decatur Farmers Market is offering an eco-friendly Earth Day promotion.

People who ride their bikes to the Market on Wednesday, April 22, will receive $5 in tokens to spend at the market. To claim your tokens, visit the info booth.

Decatur Police will also be holding a bicycle registration event.

“Bicycles are a commonly stolen item and are not registered like vehicles. Bicycle registration includes providing owner contact information, having the manufacturer and serial number documented and having a numbered decal applied to and a photo taken of your bicycle,” the event announcement says. “The process takes just a few minutes. Registering your bicycle allows officers to look up recovered bicycles and contact the owner and allows for us to quickly look up the needed information about your bicycle if it were to be stolen. The information is kept in a secured database only accessible by police department staff.”

The market will begin at 4 pm and end at 7 pm. The market is located on the front lawn of Decatur First Baptist front at 308 Clairmont Ave. Parking is free.

The market is held every Wednesday from 4 pm to 7 pm and Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm at the corner of N. McDonough and Trinity streets, near Decatur High.
