The Common Market

The Common Market is located in Wilson Commons on the first floor, right in front of the spiral staircase. We sell a variety of bulk candy and natural trail mixes as well as candy bars, nuts, medicine, and other such items that you would find in a small convenience store. We pride ourselves in making homemade fudge and have regular 'candy engineers' (students) who work throughout the year taking requests from students and making an amazing variety of flavors.

We also feature the Rochester, NY, Etsy Street Team in our Art Cart, where you can view and purchase crafts from local artists. The featured artists change monthly, so stop in often to check out their crafts and wares.

Be sure to like our Wilson Commons Student Activities Facebook Page so that you can be up-to-date on our regular promotions.


The Common Market is also the hub for ticket sales for on- and off-campus events. To purchase any tickets, you must have a University Tickets account.
