Rheta’s Market is a large dining marketplace conveniently located at the intersection of Park Street and University Avenue, which makes it a popular destination to grab meals during a busy day of classes. It is housed within the Chadbourne Residential College (Barnard and Chadbourne Hall). Equipped with eight different stations, Rheta’s offers customers with a wide variety of meals and snacks. The dining area includes an assortment of seating options for secluded study breaks and tables to share with floor mates.

Accepted forms of payment at Rheta’s Market include Wiscard, Visa, Discover, and MasterCard. To keep cashier lines moving quickly, cash or check are not accepted here.


Rheta’s Market offers all-you-care-to-eat (buffet style) service for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This means, diners will pay for their meal upon entry to the market. No outside carry-in food will be allowed during these meal periods. À la carte service (pay for what you take) will be used for items in the Flamingo Run at Rheta’s.

Please note: Rheta’s Market and dining room will be closed in-between meal service. Rheta’s Flamingo Run will be open for your meal and snacking needs in between meal service. Check hours for open times.
