This summer has been an awesome one for the Rochester Public Market. In July, the $8.5 million Public Market Improvement Project was completed, finished with a ribbon-cutting led by Mayor Lovely Warren. Renovations included a new state-of-the-art indoor vendor building, a new outdoor vendor shed, and four new food stand structures built from custom-fabricated, repurposed shipping containers. Also, the outdoor vendor shed is a replica of an original 1905 Market shed! There is still time to stop by and see these awesome new additions. Here are some things you can do at the Rochester Public Market for the rest of the year.
This is an opportunity for college students to get some of the things they may need for this upcoming semester. Lined with dozens of sellers, you will have plenty of things to choose from. These sales are free admission and are held on Sundays from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Here are the dates of the remaining sales:
- August 20, August 27
- September 10, September 24
- October 1, October 8, October 15

Food Truck Rodeos
One of the community’s favorite events is happening two more times before the end of the season! Come on down to the Public Market on August 30 and September 27 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for some of Rochester’s most amazing food trucks, and listen to some local live music. This event is also free admission!
This event is happening once this year, and it’s going to be next weekend! On Friday, August 25 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., ride your bike to the Public Market for a free bike-related movie, featuring the famous movie “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.” This year marks the third annual Bike-In movie event and is a part of the three-event “Flicks on the Bricks” outdoor movie series (where there will be another free movie on Friday, September 22 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.) Movie snacks and drinks will be for sale, but the general admission is free.
With all that the Rochester Public Market has and is continuing to offer, please stop by and take advantage of the wonderful events, and make these last few weeks of summer count!
