The Public Market's "Flea Markets"

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 Garage Sale and Super Fleas will be postponed until further notice. We will continue to operate as an essential retailer on regular Market days for community access to food ONLY, and will be placing all special events on hold (as advised by Public Health Officials.) Please check back for updates, and stay well!

*Update as of April 3, 2020: Garage Sales during April and May have been cancelled for the safety of our community. Please check back for  more information on future garage sales. 

Imagine dozens of garage sales all in one place, so you don't have to drive all over town from sale to sale!

You need not just imagine it because you can experience it on 19 Sundays each year at the City of Rochester Public Market.

Treasures await you and bargains abound...the sheer number and variety of items available at these sales defy easy description. Whatever you consider the right stuff, you have a good chance of finding it at Community Garage Sales. Surrounding Market District businesses are open on Community Garage Sale Sundays, too!

And if you're looking to move some of your stuff, you can become one of the vendors (see below for vendor information).
