Indoor winter markets are hosted at Graham Park from November through April. You'll be amazed what our farmers can grow in the harsh Minnesota winter!


By Minnesota health and safety recommendation, NO PETS are allowed in the market vending areas (except service animals).

Rochester Farmers Markets are hosted by the Rochester Downtown Farmers Market Association, seeking to support sustainable agriculture and the family farm by sponsoring a market to provide farmers with a well-organized retail marketplace, providing local access to quality farm products, and strengthening the ties between the family farm and the community.


Market staff and volunteers are available to answer any questions at the Market Info booth. We can also assist customers to make transactions with credit, debit, and EBT cards using our market token system!
