Explore Rochester this year during your holiday shopping. In our city, you will find boutiques and specialty shops, antiques, and artisans in the historic villages that line the Erie Canal and on charming Main Streets of our small towns. Or head to “The Avenues”—Park, Monroe, and University, where each street presents a distinctive combination of shops, cafés, restaurants, pocket parks, art galleries, and architecture.
We’ve put together a brief list of some of our favorite shop and holiday market events happening this year.
