Future of the Rochester Downtown Farmers Market @ Forager Brewery | Rochester | Minnesota

Ted Spitzer of Market Ventures Inc. has been commissioned by the Rochester Downtown Farmers Market and Friends of the Farmers Market to conduct a feasibility study for establishing a permanent structure in Rochester to provide local access to foods grown in our community. During his visit, Ted will analyze current / future permanent farmers market sites in the city and meet with potential new partners and stakeholders to make the permanent market a reality.

A public event will be held at Forager Brewery to showcase a presentation of case studies from other farmers’ markets that have transitioned to permanent facilities, as well as state-of-the-art public markets such as the Grand Rapids Downtown Market. The Rochester Farmers Market team will also be presenting the results of a design charrette held in January in conjunction with HGA Architects.
