Parking can be a hassle in Moncton: the parking meters ($1 per hour) and ‘no parking’ signs extend far out from downtown. The municipal parking lot at Moncton Market on Westmorland St charges $1/7 per hour/day and is free on Saturday, Sunday and evenings after 6pm. Highfield Sq Mall on Main St provides free parking for its clients, and who’s to say you aren’t one?
