Rochester Public Market

The Public Market is the place to be on a Saturday morning! What are your favorite stands / stores?

Last weekend our family arrived hungry for breakfast. We split up and agreed to meet at Java's in 15 minutes. Here is what we returned with: Aalu Tikki (this is my favorite!), 2 potato patties covered in a spicy chickpea and vegetable stew. This from a tidy food truck with no official name parked in the big shed, serving some Indian dishes, breakfast sandwiches, hotdogs, and some creative hybrids involving Indian flavors. I love this stand! Also, a breakfast sandwich with Polish sausage and bacon on a soft bulky roll from Cherry's European (Polish Ukranian American). Sausage egg and cheese with Rochester style hot sauce (meat with warm spices) from Zimmermans. An omelet sandwich with onion and artichoke from one of the hot dog vendors who also does omelets. Lemon / raspberry and almond danishes from Flour City Bread Company. We usually get at least one empanada from Juan and Maria's Empanada Stop, but we skipped it this time. And I've heard good reviews of the paninis from the cheese shop. Next time!
