Rochester has been nicknamed
the “flour” and later the “flower” city, reflecting the area’s rich agricultural heritage.

The Rochester Public Market continues to reflect this
heritage—with many farmers selling the produce they grow
on their farms.

The farmers work their farms full-time. This is their livelihood.  Some farmers are the second or third generations in their family farming. Even their children get involved—helping on the farm and selling alongside their parents at the market.  

Support our local farmers!

Can you identify the farmers at the market?

Each farmer is selling what he or she grows!
