Holidays at the Market

A Rochester Holiday Tradition

 Each year, Holidays at the Market features dozens of vendors with art, crafts, decorations, holiday food delicacies, gifts, stocking stuffers, and much much more. Take advantage of a wide selection of holiday trees, wreaths and fresh garlands. 

Families at Holidays at the Market can visit with Santa and take a free horse-drawn carriage ride, decorate cookies, and more!

Also consider giving the gift of the Market each holiday season--get some Public Market Gift Tokens or Market Merchandise for your family and friends at the Market office!
