Looking for some fun things to do in Rochester NY this weekend? Look no further than the Public Market Rochester NY has. Not only is the Public Market Rochester one of the best places to find something to do and to buy fresh produce, but it also has a nationally recognized reputation.
In 2010, the Public Market Rochester was voted as America’s Favorite Farmers Market. It beat out the prior year’s champion, and the 2010 second place rank by 2,400 votes. The contest is held nationally by the American Farmland Trust, and measures the nation’s love for markets around the country by holding votes that anyone can contribute to.
As if that were not enough to proof that the Rochester Public Market is one of the best in the country, consider what it has to offer. Tuesday and Thursday mornings, the Public Market is open from 6am to 1pm, and 5am to 3pm on Saturdays, all year round. There you can find the best and most delicious in local produce. The epitome of fresh and organic is right at your fingertips, for a fraction of what you will pay in the grocery store. What better way to support the local economy and farms than to buy straight from them?
Aside from the farmers market, the Public market also holds several events throughout the year. They have the Community Garage Sales and Superfleas, the Flower Days at the Market, Chef’s Days at the Market, Bands on the Bricks, Food Truck Rodeo, and the Foodlink Festival of Food. That is just a sampling, for a full list, with details about each, check out the Public Market site.
There is always something to do in Rochester, even just at the Public Market itself. So head on out a few times a week to get some of the best food around, and visit during the special events that make the Public Market one of the favorites across the nation.
