Another way to get to the Petworth Farmers' Market: 50% off Uber rides!

The Petworth Community Market, which happens every Friday from 4 to 8 pm on 9th between Georgia and Upshur, is another great option for those who like local food. 

However, it may be a bit far for some folks. The market now has another option: 50% off Uber, the popular car service that shows up quickly when you request them and goes where you ask (always! Unlike cabs.) Here's more about their deal:

Ride with Uber
to
Petworth Market!

The Petworth Community Market is excited to be partnering with UBER to help bring Washingtonians from near and far to the market! Whether you’re prepping for a cookout or a family dinner, we want to make sure everyone has a chance to get those fresh ingredients we all love, and a convenient way to bring them back home.

We've been so impressed with the service, we've teamed up to provide the DC community with an automatic 50% off all rides to or from the market for the rest of the season!

No need to apply a promo code, the 50% off discount will be automatically reflected on your receipt. The discount is valid for trips to and from the market, Fridays between 4pm and 8pm, starting this week through October 26.

Better yet, new Uber users can also get $15 off their first ride just by using promo code PETWORTHMARKET when you sign up, good for your first ride any time in the next year!

WHAT IS UBER?

Uber is a mobile application that allows you to request a sleek, professionally driven black car or SUV on demand, and they'll arrive curbside in just minutes. You can track the arrival of your ride on your iPhone or Android, payment is cashless, and you'll even receive a text message when your driver arrives. Uber will pick anyone up anywhere, so you’re never left stranded waiting for a cab or the bus.

HOW DO I GET IT?

Simply download Uber on your iPhone or Android (or sign up at Uber.com to use SMS), and enter promo code PETWORTHMARKET for your $15 credit off your first ride. All visitors to the market will also receive an automatic 50% off discount rides to and from the market. If you have any questions at all, just email supportdc@uber.com.



Sounds pretty cool. I'm a big fan of Uber, it works great and on longer rides is generally about the same price as a cab.
