The Rochester Public Market is bustling by 7 am on Saturdays. In warmer weather they have the most booths open, but it is still worth the trip in the cold weather because you will not find cheaper, good quality produce anywhere else. Besides foods, they sell clothing and 5 and dime goods, specialty cookware and more. Surrounding the outdoor market are several mini diners which offer great food, cappuccinos and more.
Part of the booths are inside a building that can be quite congested but still worth the stroll. A large meat and fish market and specialty foods are housed inside along with a very good and inexpensive bakery. We've picked up a whole cheesecake that was delicious for only 3 dollars.
Along the side road leading to the market are other metal markets and goods. If planning on doing both, I'd say make sure you have at least 2-3 hours and make sure you go early. The later you go, the less likely you'll find a parking spot even close by. Although they do say they have a trolley service, they don't use it as often as they should or not at all. It's all handicapped accessible, but could be a long walk for someone with a mobility problem.
