Held every Tuesday, rain or shine, at the ORR Junior High School from 3-7pm the Old Rochester Farmers' Market offers the community a unique shopping experience. Market-goers get to meet the farmers growing their food, ask questions and get suggestions for how to use the various meats, vegetables, herbs, cheeses and breads available at the market. Every Tuesday morning your local farmers go out into the fields to gather for you fresh and vibrant fruits and veggies and then bring it to you at the market. With local musicians performing weekly and farm animals the market is a family friendly event.
