Rochester Public Market

Established in 1905, Rochester Public Market is a city-run public market selling fresh produce and other food items and housing numerous independent, local businesses.  The market has the largest “token program” in the country, which enables food stamp recipients to easily purchase market goods.  It also is committed to energy efficiency and environmental stewardship, relying on a solar panel roof and solar-powered compacting garbage cans.  In the summer of 2015, the Market will launch a $7.2 million improvement project designed to renovate and expand the market, and will begin a composting program for its vendors.
