We all know that eating local is green. But, Rochester’s Public Market is taking it’s commitment to the environment a step further.
From the solar panels on the roof, to the brick pavers on the ground. There are a lot of features that make Rochester’s Public Market green.
All of the cardboard is recycled, and the solar panels are providing about 30% of the power used in the outdoor sheds and market office building. Even a new rain garden near the parking lot is helping to filter water.
The chance to connect with local farmers is a big draw for some.
Overall, the Rochester Public Market offers a green shopping experience all the way around!
