Wednesdays

4 - 7 PM

Blessed Sacrament Church Parking Lot

700 Monroe Ave.

Opening June 15th!

 

     It won't be long now! Come and say hi to your favorite farmers--they've had a cold, hard spring. Many of last year's vendors will be back, and we'll also be joined by some exciting new folks. What will you find? Peas, greens, storage apples, baked goods, cheese, coffee and more..

Our featured musician will be acoustic artist, Bucky Gelo. Bucky's influences range from James Taylor to Bach, but he makes it all his own.

Opening day will also feature Erin Gursslin, a local Rochester artist who fashions recycled spoons into wearable art using everything from wire, glitter and pressed flowers, to paper, paint and metal. Every pendant she creates is unique.

And our across the street neighbor, Genesee Center for Arts and Education (GCAE) will be at the market, too. GCAE is a not-for-profit community art center providing lessons, studio space, and gallery exhibits in letterpress, photography and ceramics. Come see what they're up to.

We hope you're looking forward to opening day as much as we are.
