The Rochester Public Market is truly a gem. I go there almost every week in nice weather, and they almost always have good deals. I've heard that chefs for local restaurants also buy their produce there. I like seeing the people who (in some cases) have actually grown the veggies I'm buying and eating. Of coure, a good deal of the produce is also brought in from elsewhere, but that doesn't make a huge difference to me. You will find all the best produce in season, along with a smattering of other businesses selling cut flowers, plants, local wines, spices, clothing, cheeses, olives, meats, bakery items, incense and much more. The community atmosphere is pretty cool too, They frequently hold community garage sales, ethnic food festivals and other special events on non-market days. There are also a few brick-and-mortar businesses around the perimeter of the market including a coffee shop. They are open year 'round, but much more popular in the summer months. Parking can be tricky on Saturdays.
