Farmers Market Solar Search

For many years, the City of Ann Arbor has made a conscious effort to promote the use of solar energy. Whether it is solar-powered water heaters at the firehouse or the rooftop panels that provide the energy necessary to make Arbor Brewing Company’s delicious beverages, you might be surprised to see all the ways that the sun keeps the city moving. We invite you to participate in the Solar Search at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market to learn more about how the city harnesses the sun’s energy.

Hello! Although the Farmers Market is only open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the codes can still be found there. Is that helpful?

As of Wednesday 9AM, there is no code by the solar powered EV charging spots. But on re-reading the clues, maybe it’s supposed to be by the sidewalk instead? If so, all the focus on the EV spots seems misguided since they are distant from both Fourth and Catherine, not “right next to” - more like “peer off towards the edge of the lot and you might spot the charging ports.”

The misleading part is "On one of the poles that the market’s solar rooftop sits upon is your next code." There are no solar panels on this section of roof. It's just a shed roof support pole.

I found the last code laying on the ground and put it back on the pole... someone might need to add more tape or something though :)
