Public markets are always fun to visit. They tell you so much about a city — especially since it’s nearly impossible to go and not end up chatting with a local. The Rochester Public Market has fed the city since 1827.
You can get just about anything here and there are plenty of options for ready-to-eat foods. Even if you’re not tempted by any of the empanadas and baked goods, the people watching is stellar. Saturday tends to be the busiest days, while Thursday is a good day to avoid the crowds.
