Why are people so passionate about the Rochester Public Market?
A friend once shared that “Food is Love” and I couldn’t agree more.
Food is about love, life, healing, sharing and giving.
We put our time, efforts, heart and souls into preparing the perfect dish.
We invite people over, we invite people in.
We want people to enjoy our cooking.
We want to share the love, the laughter, and the recipes.
At the heart of it all – it starts at the Market.
Public Market Cookbook Designer
The Friends of the Rochester Public Market have released the Public Market Cookbook!
This cookbook is a compilation of favorite recipes submitted by Market shoppers, vendors, and others. It is a celebration of the love people have for the Market and its bounty.
Proceeds from the cookbook sale go to the Market Token Program, which allows food stamp recipients to use their benefits to purchase healthy foods at the Market. The Program, which is nearing $2 million in total Token sales since 2008, has made a huge impact on the eating habits of participants, with 75% saying they've eaten "a lot" more fresh fruits and vegetables as a result with 80% stating that they now shop more often at the Market because of the easy access they now have to healthy foods.
The cookbook sells for $22.99 plus tax. Order a cookbook on-line
