A Rochester holiday tradition for over 25 years, Holidays at the Market features dozens of holiday-focused vendors (fresh-cut trees and wreaths, decorations, specialty foods and beverage products, hand craft items, and much more!) Some of the interactive activities will be limited in order to keep everyone happy, safe, and well, but the Market will be decked out in holiday lights, festive music, and have limitless local shopping and unique gift items. We will feature a virtual holiday scavenger hunt, and have fun for the whole family!
