(Friday, June 1, 2018) – The City of Rochester Public Market’s 29th annual Flower City Days at the Market series continues at 8 a.m. this Sunday, June 3.

Our award-winning Public Market is a great resource for gardeners, bolstering our efforts to create safer, more vibrant neighborhoods, more jobs and better educational opportunities for our residents. I encourage our families to come to the market and experience spring in full bloom.”

Cafes and coffee shops on the Market grounds and in the Market District are also open on these Sundays.
