Crossroads of the CommunityWhere in Rochester can you find fresh cardone, collards or daikon, sold by the farmers who grew them? Hear people speaking Russian, French or Vietnamese along with English and Spanish? See old friends and meet new ones? Shoppers and vendors from all ethnic, social and economic backgrounds gather every week, year round, to buy, sell and socialize at the Rochester Public Market, the crossroads of our community.
Crossroads of the Community: Rochester Pubic Market, a photography exhibit by Margaret W. Miyake, will be on display at St. John Fisher College, Lavery Library from January 7 to February 25, 2011. The public is invited to the opening reception and talk on January 20 from 5 – 7 PM.Miyake has been photographing at the market since 2006. She has also photographed several of the farmers at their farms. She has exhibited her work at the Community Darkroom, the High Falls Gallery, and the Link Gallery at City Hall.
