City of Rochester

Links of the Day:

- The Rochester Public Market will get some international attention.

The Travel Channel International is visiting on Saturday to get footage for a documentary called “American Times.” The show will premier in November 2012 and could be seen in 118 countries.

The attention is further proof the market is a true gem. It’s been in the same spot since 1905 and is self-supporting.

The market is also in line for some big improvements. A pedestrian bridge over Union St. is in the works. A winter shed with bathrooms and space for additional vendors is also planned.

Check out some historical photos of the market.
