Community Garage Sales at the Public Market

 GarageSales 19 web page header

The Public Market's "Flea Markets"

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. Cafes and coffee shops on the Market and in the surrounding Market District 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).
