ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Holidays at the Market, a Rochester tradition of 26 years, kicked off on Sunday.

The Rochester Public Market featured dozens of holiday-focused small business vendors. Despite all of this year’s challenges, small businesses and shoppers were eager to get out there and make the most of the holiday season.

“This is our first year in the market. We’re out of the Batavia area. We figured we want to try it and so far we will be back,” said Mark Williams, owner of V-Mark Woodcraft.

“We’ve been actually setting up for, like, the past year, looking at everything. And we’re being reasonably priced because we know how hard it is this holiday season,” said Julie of Homemaking Goods.

“It feels really festive. It’s very Christmasy here,” said Bella Rosa.

Holidays at the Market will be at the Public Market on Sunday, December 4 and 11, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Thursday, December 15 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
