Public Market remains open, some vendors offer delivery

Rochester Public Market
Food stamps will continue to be accepted at the Rochester Public Market under a plan announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Rochester residents have a new way to get food from the public market. Several vendors at the Rochester Public Market are now offering curbside pickup and, in some cases, delivery. The change is due to social distancing recommendations caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

It's the latest in a series of precautions taken by the city of Rochester as it attempts to keep the market active for retailers and residents. Those precautions include requiring gloves for all vendors, a sanitation crew cleaning throughout each market day and adding more sanitizer pumps around the site.

Special events and garage sales at the market have been cancelled through May.

Here is a list of vendors offering delivery, pickup, and alternative ordering options:

  • Flour City Bread, Seven Bridges Farm, Pittsford. Farm Dairy and Fisher Hill Farm
