Rochester Public Market

Rochester Public Market

The Rochester Public Market is the place to grab the freshest locally grown and wholesale fruit, veggies, seafood, beef, cheese, bread, spices, plus clothes, perfumes, and kitchen wares.



The market is surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants, and vendors offering a grab-and-go breakfast, burger or empanada. You can smell the donuts, kettle corn and roasted nuts wherever you turn.

It is always crowded, so patience with people is required to get a great deal. Yes, vendors will barter, and their prices go down as the day progresses and the competition gets thick.

Bring along your reusable bags or mini-cart for hauling your goods back to your vehicle; take the shuttle back to your car if you can.

Much more than
a market!

If you can think of a visit to the Public Market as a day trip rather than a utility, you’ll have fun exploring the ins-and-outs of each building, go with the flow of people, and appreciate the wall art while eating some amazing food!

Pick up a hot cup of coffee at Javas. Grab breakfast at Hetties Delites Cafe (vegan & vegetarian) or Boxcar Donuts & Fried Chicken (vegan donuts limited & sell out quick).

Enjoy lunch at Restaurant Fiorella or dinner at Cure; both base their menus on local, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients, and both are among the top recommended restaurants in Rochester.

Don’t miss The Pierogi Guy, The Chai Guy, The Nut Guy, and Juan & Maria’s Empanada Stop.
