New this season, the Downtown Rochester Farmers’ Market will accept Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT), also known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Bridge Cards. This initiative through the Rochester Downtown Development Authority gives recipients of public assistance access to fresh, healthy food while supporting the local farm economy.
The market is open every Saturday, May 3 through Oct. 25, from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. and is located at the corner of E. Third and Water Street, one block east of Main Street.
