    One not mentioned advantage of the RR site is that it is close to graduate student housing and located between campus and grad student housing and is a walkable / bikable distance. It is also not far from large buildings such as IST and meterology. So faculty, staff, and students could easily pop over. If there were an attractive place to get lunch or snacks there every day or week day even if there were no market some days, it would develop news habits and support using the market.
