Future of the Rochester Downtown Farmers Market
1005 6th St NW
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.
