The Friends of the Rochester Public Market

FriendsLogo Artist Row is brought to you by volunteers from The Friends of the Rochester Public Market. This group is a mostly volunteer non-profit organization that supports the market in many important ways.

The Friends signature program is the Market Token Program, through which SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or "food stamps,") recipients can use their benefits to purchase fresh, healthy food from the Market. This program is the most successful of its kind in the country.

The volunteer organizers of Artist Row are proud to be a part of the Friends organization. All profits from the show go back into supporting the Friend's important programming. If you're interested in learning more about what the Friends do, visit
